Half Bath Awakening...

We (as in me) are slowly starting to think about color and painting in our recently purchased house. I am a way over the top color person- well not over the top, but I just have to have color.  It is not a cosy warm home until there are cosy warm colors. I started on the half bath this past week. Do you know how hard it is to find the right color of yellow? Goldy yellow or orangy yellow or butter cream yellow.  I am calling it done for right now because I am tired of repainting it but it still needs some toning down/tweaking if you will. Maybe a light glaze/stain over the top.  We will see. I do know this, if you need to wake up, just come over to use our half bath. It is cheerful and very BRIGHT! And, yes, the rooster theme from the kitchen lives on. I don't know why. It just does.
 Rustic red mirror is from Hobby Lobby. Half price score! Love it.
I did realize that I am getting a little to old to tackle the big painting stuff. Having some help this week with the living/dining and kitchen areas. Can't wait to show you. Can't wait to see it myself.

I will leave you with these words that were so inspiring to me this morning in worship:
Acts 17: 24-28

24 “He is the God who made the world! He also made everything in it. He is the Lord of heaven and earth. He doesn’t live in temples built by hands.

25 He is not served by human hands. He doesn’t need anything. He himself gives life and breath to all people. He also gives them everything else they have.

26 From one man he made all the people of the world. Now they live all over the earth. He decided exactly when they should live. And he decided exactly where they should live.

27 God did this so that people would seek him. Then perhaps they would reach out for him and find him. They would find him even though he is not far from any of us. 28 ‘In him we live and move and exist.’ As some of your own poets have also said, ‘We are his children.’

So comforting and awesome! I live under the governing of the God of the universe!
Whom should I fear and what should I fear? He is in control.  I am thankful.
Blessings on your day! Amy

I love that yellow! Maybe the photos don't accurately show it, but I like it. Funny I posted pics of our bathroom remodel today too!

I love the colors together!! The yellow and reds are so pretty. I used to have a house in buttery yellow and I loved it. Makes me think of maybe painting again!! Love the rooster.
