Winter Blues

Hello friends!

I know I’m not alone in dealing with the latest winter wallop, and I have to tell you, it’s really getting depressing.  Being stuck inside (many times with rowdy kids thanks to all of the snow days), gray skies and the lack of anything green, leaves me feeling a bit blue.

Did I mention that we haven’t had a “normal” school week since before Christmas?  And that it took me five hours to get to Indianapolis this weekend (when it normally takes 2.5), due to the interstate being shut down?

This pretty much sums it up for me:

Or this:

So, what do you do to cope with the winter months?  Last night, thanks to Pinterest, I made my first batch of beignets.

In the spirit of the winter blues, how about some pretty winter blue hues?  I’ve noted the paint colors where I could find them. 🙂

Check out the ceiling in this room!

Paint color is Winter Gate (Benjamin Moore):

Kensington Blue (Benjamin Moore):

Watery (Sherwin Williams):

Winter Lake (Benjamin Moore) – love this color!

How do you deal with the cold winter months?

    Well that was a fun way to pick up our winter bluesy spirits! Thank you! I am ready for some blue Carribean water staring back at me. It's not happening this year, but a girl can dream!

    I love to look at the pictures you collect! Love the blue kitchen stools in the last photo- I have a pair of plain dark saddle seat stools hanging around my kitchen, and had been debating giving them a coat of blue spray paint. After seeing that photo, I might just go spray paint shopping this weekend!

    Wow! So much inspiration and I am loving all the teal!! So funny how you and I are drawn to the same colors! Always cracks me up! Stay warm (we actually had snow last night!!). School is closed today because of a tiny amount. Being from Minnesota, this just cracks me up! Hugs friend! xo
