|Securing with a stitch|
I finished my sister in-law's button cowl right before the weekend. The buttons are vintage and from my grandma's stash I received over the summer. I decided to do the double drop stitch every 5 rows. I really liked how it came out and I hope Lindsay will too. She wanted something to match her coat which is white, black, and gray.

When we first looked at our house to consider it for renting the door was painted a lovely blue. But the day we moved in, it had been painted over this washed out taupe. That same night when we went to pick up essentials from the store I got a quarter gallon of blue/green paint that was as close to the color the door had previously been. I put two coats on it and it might need a bit more touching up. It's a little brighter then the previous color. Our chairs clash a bit, but I'm hoping to find some lime green ones soon. I love bright colors in small quantities. The same taupe is on the garage and on a column and I hope to get rid of it when it gets warmer to brighten up the house. I know it's just a rental, but to me it's fun to watch how a little bit of paint can change the face of a house.

One big reason I am happy about living here is seeing babies of family and friends grow up. That is something you will never replace in life and living a little too far away has made me realize that I want to see these little ones develop.
