I decided to do something bold with colour, since we had been in an apartment for 2 years. I picked OOPSY DAISY YELLOW as the paint colour. Now in the store it looked fab. I should have known after what happened on the way home it may not have been the best choice. A friend of mine came with me, I did not drive yet so we took the bus. We sat at the back of the bus with two cans of paint on our laps. Suddenly the bus jerked to a stop and the OOPSY DAISY PAINT fell off of my friends lap onto the floor and.....you guessed it, opened. A river of OOPSY DAISY poured down the aisle of the bus and down the back door step. Embarrassed is not the word. The bus was evacutated, thank goodness we were close to home and did not have to board the new bus the not so happy passengers were waiting for.
Well, I painted the bedroom and I loved it. It was actually brighter than the curtains in this picture. The first time we had a guest, my husband's brother, I knew it was a little too bright for a bedroom that got the first sun in the mornings. Oh yes, I forgot, I did not have curtains up yet. The night before my husband and his brother had celebrated a bit, well more than a bit. When my brother-in-law woke up I heard a loud moan. All I can say is a night of partying and OOPSY DAISY YELLOW PAINT did not go well together.
And yellow birds, everytime I see a canary in the garden it still takes my breath away. I cannot resist the soft down of the Spring Ducklings....adorable.
I hope you have a little "YELLOW" in your life today.....and a happy ending!
