Mint Green Inspiration

Am I the only one who has a hard time getting back to work after a holiday weekend?  I hope you all had as relaxing of a weekend as I did.  We had some of my husband's family here and it was quite fun.  I didn't take a single photo.  I wanted to be more present this weekend and that meant NO CAMERA...or computer. 

It is officially the first day of summer break!  It's mid morning and the kids and I are still in our pjs.  That doesn't happen very often around here, but it feels nice.  I thought I'd allow the kids one day of pure laziness before the summer morning schedule begins {clean room, make bed, chores, dive team...}.  

For me there won't be much work going on during the day with four kiddos running loose around here, so the plan is for me to get up early so I can fit in a couple hours in the garage before they wake up.  Wish me luck...I'm SO not a morning person!  Anything before 6 is akin to death :{

I've been rooting around Google Images trying to find the perfect shade of mint green for a dresser I have waiting for a make-over.  Here's some inspiration.

    I am on the same wavelength - a bit over duck egg but not quite wanting green - I think eau de nil is my colour of choice at the moment! Am about to order some lovely dupion silk curtains for our bedroom from India - at least I hope they'll be lovely!?! Love your furniture and admire that you find the time for what you do - I don't seem to be able to although I just bought to lovely old bentwood chairs that need painting so I will have to try. Really enjoy your blog - it's the only one I subscribe to.

  8. You have the same favorite color with my mom she also love mint green....that's why we ended up of buying mint green set of plates, mugs and cups last monday. Good thing we got it with 50% of.. LOL
