Pin It Weekly #255 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I imagine it's time to get back to pinning. Question: was I on a herringbone/chevron thing before the computer crash? Well, whatever happened, it was hefty because there are easily 15 chevron quilts in one small section of my "heart, quilts" board

Others are having Blogger issues with their comments. I'm having problems getting Blogger to load on the computer. Other sites load like normal, but Blogger takes about three times longer. It reminds me of the early years of internet when we had to dial up and listen to those crazy noises. Remember those days?

This is what my home page looks like, or maybe it's the header page. It's the one that shows up first when I go to Pinterest. But yes, surprised! Apparently Pinterest takes pins from your most popular board and throws them into these bricks or blocks. That's all I can tell you, but I like it.

What colors have you been pinning?

I'm going with gray and a soft blue because I have to choose colors for our bedroom so that we can finish the bathroom. Since I'd like the two to coordinate, I have to decide now. Ah, the stress!

Soft blues have the ability to make a space feel tranquil. My favorite soft blues are those that have a grayish undertone. In my opinion, they look more sophisticated than that of a baby blue. Depending on the lighting and the other colors in the room, some may come across more gray or green. With that said, here are my favorite grayish blue paint colors. Sherwin Williams- Sleepy Blue Benjamin Moore- Summer Shower Benjamin Moore- Smoke Benjamin Moore- Yarmouth Blue Benjamin Moore- Sant...

Something neutral like this for a second guest room. Light blue with tan.

This room is aesthetically soothing by its use of a monochromatic color scheme. The use of varying tones of soft blues is a great way to freshen a space while the white adds a level of sophistication.
