Front Door Contest

So, once again we are having Will Johnson perform a concert in our living room. He will be here on the 20th and I always like to use that as an excuse to execute a long awaited project on the house. This time I'm thinking I should paint the front door. It's something we've talked about forever, but it just hasn't gotten done. But what color?? We have a bright green mailbox, so I've narrowed down colors that will coordinate with that. But I still can't decide. What do you think?

Here is our front door. In the spring obviously. It's too cold and dark out now to take a better one. But, you can see how dark the front door is. Gloomy. Here are our options. 

Classic cream. It's bright and matches the rest of the trim. 

Match the mailbox and go green. This is what we are leaning towards. 

Maybe it's because we are surrounded by a riot of fall leaves, but how about orange?

And, my favorite, a blue/teal. J's least favorite color in the world. Probably not going to happen, but I wanted to throw it in there anyway.

Let me know what you think!

Catch Up

So, it's been a while. Since May? Whoops, time does really fly. The time has come, however, for my self-induced blog vacation to cease, so as a quick catch up, here is what's been going on...
I went to Quilt Market in Portland with Indygo Junction, the pattern company where I now work.
I dabbled in gardening
Went to Nashville
Waited out a 2 hour rain delay to see Pearl Jam
Played on E's farm
Successfully talked my parents and sister into taking two kittens each!
Had a birthday and ate lots of cake. Which then led to the adoption of the Paleo diet and an agonizing sugar detox
And found myself at Quilt Market in Houston.

Thing should be a little more exciting around here now, so stick around. There has been talk of a blog re-design and all sorts of goings on! That all depends on J though and how quickly I can talk him into doing things, so we'll see.

What have you been up to this summer?
