a sage thursday and past delights

what'cha doing doyle?, guarding this sage coloured tile mollie...

why on earth doyle... it don't look that special...

cos it's my sage find... oi mollie come back here...

nah, i got a better find doyle... b's sage coloured squares...

oh and that one's special doyle...

oh yeah how come...

b made it specially with her grandmama in mind...

cos her grandmama made her this special blankie when she was really little...

see it's sage and yellow... b also made that blue stripey one behind me to always remember c's great uncle alan cos sadly he past away this week...

this is alan and lorna with c & b's niece kahlia at c's dads birthday celebrations in melbourne four years ago... alan was always so dapper...

hey mollie i'm pretty sure that dogs arn't allowed on that blankie cos b says it's an heirloom...

do you hear me moll?... i sure wouldn't let b catch you on her grandmama's blankie...

oh dont worry doyle, i'll just crouch down and hide, she'll miss me for sure...

oh brother, see what i have to live with...daily! i think i will just take my mind back to when our house got painted sage...

there were days of paint charts with many shades of sage...

lots'a pondering...

intense discussions...

many test pots...

patchy windows...

massives of sanding...

more serious discussions...

like who made the scratchys on the back door?...

and how long our house gonna be full of paint?...

in fact how long this all gonna take guys...

the sage saga finally finished...

it dosn't look it here but after days and days of hardwork (thanks james) our house finally got all its sage highlights... oo'er! hey b you really could have straightened the mat!

next week blue's coloured thursday has called out rainbow as the colour to play... oh sheesh more squares....
