Little Flowers for Grammie
Which Classic Heroine are You?

Woodsy Hues

Kim started a carnival of color over at Starry Sky Ranch, and I just couldn't resist joining in! I looked all over our home to determine what color is more present than others, and honestly, I kept arriving at more of a theme, than an actual color: wood. Woodsy, piney, warm.

If I had to pin down colors, I'd say brown, evergreen and deep red. Those shades, and this theme, pops up all over the place, inside and out! Here is a little tour of images from our home ...
