Today is gray and rainy…a strange weather day here in New York State. It is November 15 and today it was in the mid 60’s with rain and humidity and some rare moments of sunlight. Pretty warm for November, don’t you think? Since it is so gloomy out, I think a photo of McCoy pottery is in order. I love these two pieces: the piece on the left is a double cache pot with a lovely bird. (I am captivated by all the birds used throughout the McCoy line.) The piece on the right is a bookend. I only have one, although I see them on eBay all the time. Just haven’t pursued another one. My McCoy collection always makes me smile. As you’ll recall, I started this blog in February in the middle of winter – with pictures of McCoy. Rest assured, I will share more with you from time to time. I love, love, love my McCoy!
Thank you so much for your helpful advice about choosing a shade of yellow for my living room and kitchen. For some reason, I am very cautious about choosing a paint shade. I know the decorators on television say, “It’s only paint, you can always paint over it,” but I don’t want to paint over it; I want to paint and be done with it.
Right now I am doing all the prep work; washing walls, patching, sanding, and taping. I will start the primer in a day or two and then, hopefully, the perfect shade of yellow. What do you think about the yellow used in the McCoy bookend? Too cool a shade? I want a pale yellow to go with the ivory color of my trim. Honestly? Sometimes I think I should just paint the whole shebang the same shade of ivory as the trim. Is that copping out?
