After our very VERY long construction (or should I say destruction) of our house, we ended up painting our little cottage happy yellow with white shutters. Only the doors are blue. I love the way the paint looks, how can you not smile when you see a yellow house with white shutters? You can’t! The color of our little house is the same color as this beautiful rose. While it is not a beach house (I wish) it does remind me of the houses I have seen on Cape Cod. So, even though I shudder with the cold weather, once I have seen the warm yellow of the house and the shiny white of the shutters I try to pretend we’re in a warm climate. Does it work? Sometimes. It definitely reminds me of summer and butterflies and buttercups. Summer can’t be too far away, can it?
