summery frocks and all the pretty mint



I think mint color is stalking me lately. Here’s the thing;
I paint a chair in robin’s egg blue with white polka dots and next moment I regret cause I didn’t paint it mint. With polka dots. I am attendee of découpage workshop and I bring the wooden jewelry box with me. Lady talks about crack, lavenders and olives and rolls eyes over vintage and girly œuvres d’art, which my mate and me made. And I mix white acrylic paint with blue and I get the pale blue. Again I wish I made a mint background. Why I make such a terrible mistakes when all I ever wanted is the flat in Notting Hill area with mint kitchen, vintage lace curtains and polka dot tea set. Even my boyfriend when you wake him up in the middle of the night and ask for the flat, answers in a minute; “Mint kitchen! vintage lace curtains! polka dot china! big brass bed! floral wallpapers in the bedroom!”

I see you have trained him well master! :-))))

Mint is pretty magical. It has the freshness and romance of pastel colours but still isn't too sweet as a lot of them can be.

This is my favourite colour right now, I love to pair it with a dusky pink. I wish I could wear it but alas my colouring disagrees, instead I'm filling my house with it.

Your blog is an instant favourite... lets me friends!
