My Modelo with lime will be so happy

Unfortunately, one thing I've never been called is a tease. In this case, however, I cannot help myself. You just have to see what my next door neighbor Lauren and I created in my sweltering garage yesterday. We certainly felt incredibly clever. I am so fortunate to have a new neighbor with a creative brain. The ideas were flying and the results are going to be delightful!

I don't have a picture of our creation yet because the masterpiece is not yet complete. Let's just say it has to do with outdoor living, Mexico, palm fronds, and lots of paint in turquoise and green. It's so fun and fabulous I can hardly stand it. I promise to share a picture just as soon as I can get it fully assembled.

Until then, consider me a horrible tease.

I stumbled on this blog by googling "metallic glaze wash". You are hysterical! I used to live in Texas (San Anton) and thought it was too hot. Now we just come down there for vacations (husband is in the Army so we move a lot) and I like it lots better. I just painted my living room chartreuse and lime green.... yikes! On three walls. I'm going to do metallic/pearlescent for the fourth so it doesn't feel like we are living in a pea pod. I'll have to check back to see what you did with lime and palm fronds and so forth. And by the way, botox really works! Cheers from Virginia~

We did re-think the colors for that spec house on Lake Placid Lavenderchick blogged about. We originally planned to use a darker color for the stucco (SW Connected Gray) and after I saw the lovely homes (and real dogs) you blogged about recently, we chose a lighter color for the stucco (SW Grassland) with the darker color for trim and fascia. I think it's going to be so much better. The Connected Gray was just a little too similar to my next door neighbors' Intellectual Gray exterior anyway.
