Let's see if we can get something cheery posted

Daughter loaded up our shared Google drive with lots of pictures, some from Christmas and some from just daily living. Also lots of little videos. There was a totally hilarious one that must have been taken right after the girl's bath because they are both naked, running around in circles in the living room dragging their towels and the oldest one yelling "Naked baby run" So funny, so nothing I would share. 

I got my new toaster on Sunday, worked well but mostly it is so pretty on the counter - the color is 'peach orange', really a soft pastel peach color and it is 'medium' sized - so a bit on the compact side which is okay with me, I don't need jigunda appliances - getting the color right was a bit difficult but this is pretty close but a bit too orange - 

I do love the retro look, had I the cause and the money I would so do my kitchen with retro look appliances, the only dilemma being what color to choose - different companies have different selections - do I get butter yellow or mint green or orange? My husband always chooses red but I don't do red.  

I do love lots of bright colors, I don't wear them anymore but our apartment is rather a riot of color with nothing matching at all. Orange and purple and yellow and green? Yeah, why not!

  1. I love the cheerful color of the toaster! I totally agree that we can use any color that pleases us in our homes.

    1. I cannot even imagine what people think when they see this place but I suppose it would be along the lines of "Interesting choice..." LOL

  2. What a fun color! I think a house should have pops of color and reflect our personalities which is why my house would be an "Interesting choice" house too!

  3. Peach orange is cheerful retro. Avocado green should probably stay back where it came from.

    1. What about Harvest Gold? Now there is a color that needs to stay buried in the past.

    2. Ugh, yes. That's what we had in my kitchen growing up.

  4. okay Grace this is very pretty but no avocado or harvest gold or that horrid brown color. I saw a kitchen in pink. I don't care for pink but it was done really well and her appliances looked great. Another friend has a pretty blue/green fridge and stove and it works in her home. Colored appliances actually cost more isn't that silly?

    1. I know the color you mean but can't remember what they called it. I suppose the color appliances are more expensive because they aren't mass produced like white/black/stainless - there is a European brand available in the US called Smeg that has a lot of nice colors but it seems to be less than wonderful mechanically.

    1. I've never seen buttermilk. It's actually a pale peach color.
