Points of Business:
1) I'm totally deflated about Aaron McCargo, Jr., winning "The Next Food Network Star" challenge. I thought he deserved 3rd place. And since I've been home a month and cooked warm food at least 6 times (not including Pop Tarts), I think I know what I'm talking about.
2) I wrote a letter to Burger King about the horrible commercial wherein the weird Mini Me Burger King (Burger Prince?) kicks his wimpy father in the shin upon being handed a treat. I'm sure my one letter is going to effect big changes, as it did when I was 8 years old and I wrote a letter to singer Bobby Sherman asking him to do something about that vampire Barnaby Jones on Dark Shadows, and voila, Dark Shadows was cancelled in 1971.
3) Do not forget to visit Diane at Meyers on the Hood tomorrow for our first commentary on Beth Moore's Online Believing God study. I think my first commentary next Thursday will probably just be something like, "Believe me, you should believe God," so you'd better go see Diane for something a little more in depth.
But now, here is today's real post:
Hello, I'm the Black and White Lady who has infiltrated Lidna's mind. I whisper to her night and day, "Go with black and white in your kitchen ... do something different from your usual plebian modus operandi ... for heaven's sake, try to be just a little chic for once!" (This is in ref to yesterday's post.) But I'm not trusting her all the way because she has a supernatural, inhuman tiny waist that could be making her mean and spiteful.
So here's what I'm thinking. What if I went with a black and white theme. (College Daughter, if you're reading this, just wait to cast judgment until you have beheld the pics.) I would put paper on ONE wall, the accent wall. The wainscoting would stay white, and the walls, well, probably white. That's a lot of white, I know, but I do love it. I can just envision black frames with colorful prints or black and white prints. Probably my third (accent) color would be red, but I'd want it to be able to be removed so that when spring arrived, I could go pink as an accent, for example.
Here are some sample papers. What do you think? You can click on the pics to get a bigger view. Keep in mind this is an old (1966) ranch house. The other big room is in autumnal colors with black accents, with one big ol' cranberry red wall, although it always photographs purplish. So the black would be carried through there, and it's also in the frou-frou room I just re-decorated.
Here is one option, a swirly. Two shots--one is wall perspective, the other a close up.
Now here is a floral that has some shiny silver in it, which would allow me to paint the other walls light gray:
Finally, here is the Frenchie, Frenchie Frou-Frou version of the B & W:
Do you like any of these? I promise this is the last decorating post for a while!
