Mix 'n' Match

Today's post brought to you by the letter 'X' and the number '5'.

Before I get too carried away here, head over to J the Grockle's and say hi to F&B, will ya?

****************************************************************

First, the contest. The deadline's tonight, isn't it? I had to show you what the Hunny thought of the chicken:



Yeah. And I want to show you Little Guy's new acquisition. I was shopping for a noise machine and eye cover so I can sleep during the day, when I came across something no boy should have to live without. And less than two bucks.



He likes it. He's already scheming ways to change his vision by wearing it over one eye all the time for a week, then switching eyes. Weird kid. He didn't get that from me. No.

************************************************************


Again with the pictures of the house! Let me 'splain. I have fallen in love with our local Ace Hardware. They sell these cute little pints of paint, perfect for
slathering all over a wall to tell if you'll like the color before buying 15 gallons. See?



So here's the thing. I went out this morning and painted five different colors on the side of the house. I know a couple that I don't like. I have two favorites. The Hunny's liable to like the ones I don't. That's just the way it works, ya know? So tell me what you think, please. Don't hesitate to tell me you hate them all. If that's true. We're trying to keep in mind the brick and the roof. Lookit.



Speaking of the roof, it was replaced yesterday. Wanna see? I took pictures at noon, so the bright sun distorts somewhat. Sorry. But the color is slate.



We like it. It's done. Yay!

***********************************************************

So I'm all over the place today. Sorry. It's just been that kind of day. Y'all have a great day, m'kay?

Until I write again ...

I say the 3rd or 4th. I can't really see the first one well enough to say.

Tina said...

I like the one just right of the window. It has some color but doesn't clash :)

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Either of the two to the right of the window. Have fun!

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

Ooohoohooh the green, the green! Around the left hand window.
And your hubby looks so much like my friend Dave it is spooky!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

i like the first and the 5th...

Marguerite said...

Either of the two on the right. I really like the darker one, far right.

Speaking of siding, did you get my voice mail last weekend?

Tammy said...

I like the chicken, it's cool! I go with the 3rd one.

Karen Deborah said...

green

Mental P Mama said...

I like the colors next to the window. You want to match the mortar in the brick. Do NOT introduce another plaster color! Please put purple in the dining room.

TSannie said...

MPM and I are sittin' here in my kitchen and we agree: Match the mortar/concrete in the brick. Another color introduction would just be baaaaad! Color belong in the house (refer to MPM's purple suggestion).

Happy painting!

Karen said...

I like the ones on either side of the window best. The yellow would be alright as well. I'd shy away from the greens with the blue siding. But maybe that's just me.

I love the green IF you're going to paint over the blue. Otherwise, I agree with the people who say match the mortar. I do like the cream, but the blue and the brick are throwing me off with that one. This from the girl who couldn't match two shades with a cheat chip...

Love, love, LOVE the pirate. Argh, my Matey!

Crazymamaof6 said...

dang i missed out on the contest SHOOT!
i like the green one. maybe or the creamy one. not that that description helps. i love love those paint testers though. and perfect for crafting too.

awesome eye patch. love the plans.

Melissa said...

Wow, major changes happening. I can't wait to see which color you pick!

Keri said...

the second one to the right of the window... i think it's the most complimentary of them. It seems to pick up the motar and compliment the blue.

April said...

I really like the first one on the left (green). Pretty and earthy! and my second choice is the one all the way on the right.

imbeingheldhostage said...

Ok, so first I was liking the first, then the 2nd pulled me over, but then I thought of the whole picture and decided the first was the way to go... then I decided I liked the other end two. I'm a big help, aren't I!

I'd better get a new post up or F&B followers are going to come over and be disappointed!

Lori said...

If you are counting from the Left, I like #2 and #4. I think they'll go best with your brick. How fun!

Chelf said...

Valid question, what are we painting? Is this to replace the Blue? Counting from the left, I like 2 best, then 1 and 5. The two by the window are so very pale... apartment beige comes to mind. I am crazy that way, I want COLOR, within reason.

Happy decision.

Colleen said...

I'm thinking the one on the far left...
