Every time Rylan makes a mess on the floor (e.g., diarrhea, blueberry smoothie, orange smoothie), I am thankful we have blue carpeting. Blue doesn’t show the stains as starkly as do white or beige carpets. There was a time when we did have white carpeting. It was a terrible thing to do to my kids, who were expected to wash their feet before stepping on the carpet, and were forbidden to drink dark colored drinks. Those poor children! Yes, it was very stressful to keep it clean, though I must admit a sparkling white carpet with green ferns hanging nearby was quite stunning to look at. Guests were impressed.
Last Monday, I decided to change the seat covers on 12 dining chairs. The owner of Magdaleno’s Upholstery came by and showed me fabric samples. I chose a fabric with colorful tropical flowers against a brilliant blue background. The chairs will be ready in about two weeks. I’ll post photos at that time.
As you can tell, blue is my favorite color, though people have told me I look best in either red or black clothing.
It’s too bad David has brown eyes, because blue eyes make me swoon!
