An unimporatant tid bit.

Why black & not white?
I love white furniture.

When my hubby and I first got married, I got rid of all my white furniture in exchange for black. Big mistake! I was a newlywed and wanted to make him happy (still do). I didn't think that maybe I could change his taste-- but I have, slowly and delicately over the years. Back to the story...My Dad had a shop, so he built us a 'newlywed' apartment over it. The staircase was SO STEEP & NARROW that we had to buy two extra long twin mattresses for our new 'Sturbridge Yankee' black King bed frame because the king size wouldn't fit. Black for him! Slowly, as we have acquired pieces for our room, they all have been painted black with a cottage twist (Oh, how I love white bedroom furniture though!). My dream would be to (have hubby) add rose and swag appliques to all our bedroom furnishings. For now I will let him finish the 923,344,999 other projects I have on his honey-do-list. AND,If he can sleep in a pink room, then I can sleep with black furniture instead of white. Anyways, he would have to paint it all white and I just couldn't find it inside myself to do that to him. I've often thought it, but just couldn't do it.I love him too much for that.

You should see my husband's honey-do list! I've ended up doing most of it myself. I just feel so bad asking him to do more after he's already worked all day.

Thanks for the email. I'm SO glad to be here!

Most of our house is pink & white & girly!!
Let me tell you a story... My husband's brother was at our house one day. We had just gotten some new furniture. The recliner of DH's is a salmon color on a brocade fabric.
My BIL looked at DH & said "Pink?? You have a Girlie pink chair?" I was so mad... I looked at him & said before DH could even formulate a thought... "My husband doesn't have a problem with his sexuality. Do you?"
With that he shut up & never, ever mentioned it again! Needless to say I got a BIG atta'girl from DH!!
