You can find the photo credits for all of these gorgeous images RIGHT HERE!

Good morning, how was your weekend?  My husband got back on Thursday evening after a sad trip to Iowa for his Dad's funeral, so our weekend was spent relaxing, catching up, and shedding some tears together.  It's amazing the hole that's left in your heart when you lose someone.  There's no way to use this topic as a cheery segway into today's post, so I'll just get started!

I've been thinking about color a lot lately ... it adds so much beauty to life!  My husband and I were talking about that just yesterday.  We live in Seattle where the skies are gray 6-8 months out of the year.  It can get pretty dreary around here at times and COLOR can be a definite mood booster.  Whether it's color on your walls, in your decorating, or just color you discover in shops or on a leisurely walk  ... color brightens our lives!

If you haven't heard of this yet, I'm excited to tell you about a tool that the paint company, Sherwinn Williams, offers on their website!  It's called "CHIP IT".  You simply upload an image or give a link to an image's location on the web and their CHIP IT tool will create a custom color palette based on your photo.  Isn't that cool?  I think I could kill a lot of time on this website.  ha, ha.

Have a great new week, sweet friends. :)   I'll do my best to find interesting things things to post this week.  Hugs!!
