In the midst of all the activity.....

We've decided to add PINK to the doors and eves of the house!
Not really pink....much more ORCHID, I would say.  Orchid and periwinkle blue, with yellow window trim against a sagey green house.  It works for me!  In Hawaii you can shout your colors outloud and the flowers will nod their heads in agreement.

How very wonderful to have so much color in your life. Here in Tennessee, the wintertime is sort of gray and drab. I love winter but I truly miss the sun and the colors that we have the rest of the year. Now it is Spring and the colors are just wonderful.

I have been a fan of your work for years now. I don't believe that many people can come close to your skill as an artist. And your family photos show that you are skilled at loving your family too. Thanks for your work, your site, and your passion.

Love those colours!!! I do wish that we had that kind of excitement and vibrancy in the colours used on the homes in this part of the world.

Alas. It's all heritage grey-out earth tones for the most part.

Brava for you and your family to liven up your home's exterior!

I never thought you could improve on your amazing home...but trust you to be able to gild the lily.
I adore the colors...I don't remember the gingerbread decoration...is it new?
I adore the posts on you little Granddaughters. They truly have a magical life. They were very clever to choose you for their Grandmother.
I was in Iceland and saw Katrin...she is still creating magic.
