Periwinkle it is!

 It's one of my all time favorite colors, and yet I never decorate with it.

Until now!

I've had this old, beat up bird house that I've been wanting to make over. I don't actually mind the rustic siding. It was the dingy, dark green roof that really needed some sprucing up.

So I cleaned it off and gave it a quick coat of Bahama Purple by Delta Ceramcoat (which I believe has {sadly} been discontinued).

Much better! 

The perfect punch of color along the back fence.
The two birds came off of a birdbath that unfortunately did not make it through this crazy New England winter, despite having been covered under a tarp with a lot of other garden decor.

This last photo, with the bunny and the moon, reminds me of a favorite book I used to read to my girls when they were little, "Goodnight Moon."

This week I'm joining Brenda at Cozy Little House for Tweak It Tuesday
and Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

I hope you all have a great week!

 At long last...
... spring has arrived in the Northeast.

Everyone, including Baby, is walking around with a look of bliss upon their faces.

Baby, being much calmer today than she has been for the past week...

... when she insisted on 'helping' me with my most recent paintings!

Hoping you are all enjoying a beautiful spring!
