Too Cool & Dinner With Emily



Thank you for the comments about the bedroom curtains!  The final score is...

gray 23 - peacock 17


The other day as I was tallying up the score, this comment came in that really got my attention.




I completely agree!  To backtrack, I once posted a question about the mirrors in the room.  I think some gold rub & buff will warm them up and completely change the look of the room.  Once I make that change I am hoping it will be clear to me which way to go with the curtain color, but I am leaning toward gray.  Thanks again for your moral support!  I love having a panel of experts that I can go to for design advice and I value each and every opinion.


This week I had the opportunity to have dinner with Emily.  Even though we have followed each other's blogs and kept in touch by email, we had never met in person.  We had a great time talking about the things we enjoy and getting to know each other better.  Emily has been so supportive of me and I was thrilled when she emailed to see if we could meet for dinner.  I will also add that she is sweeter, funnier, and if you can believe it, prettier in person.  Thanks for a great night Emily!

Have a great weekend!

  12. i completely agree with "an urban cottage". when i looked at your curtain options, for some reason the gray didn't look quite right... although i love a good gray curtain. i think she hit it right on, everything did look a little bit cold. can't wait to see the antique gold rub and buff on the mirrors... great idea!

  13. I'm honored that my comment resonated with you, Rene. It only took me about two days to cough something up.

    Just hoped I don't get blamed for ruining your mirrors if it doesn't work out! :)

    Actually, I think it will be perfect!

  15. How fun that you go to meet Emily! It's so great when you get to really put a live person to the blog. I can't wait to see those mirrors transformed with the rub n buff! I swear that stuff is addicting. I often find myself thinking,"Hmmmmm....maybe I should rub n buff this." ;)

  18. This would be the kind of decision that would drive me batty! You seem to be taking it all in stride, as part of a fun puzzle. I'm watching your decision-making process with a great deal of interest, in hopes that I can learn to live with indecision for a while . . .
