    To the eventual big move...Im headed south!



    I bought and had delivered new appliances for the kitchen!



    Next up? Getting rid of this hideous pink carpet....

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    That reminds me of my first apt. Our bathroom and all the things in it were this horrible Pepto Bismal pink. Yuck.

    Ahhhh...that was my second apartment! Except that the kitchen appliances also were pink! Not Pepto Bismal pink, thankfully. More a soft pink. But still--pink? What were they thinking of in the 1950s?

    I have seen so many shows on HGTV with pink bathrooms....I feel bad for the men in the family during those times.

    Who knew pink as such a popular color?

    Our house has colored bathrooms too. Downstairs is blue and upstairs is green. At least those I can deal with.

    I think part of it was the post-WWII pent-up consumption demand and the fact that it was possible to have fixtures in colours! I know I went crazy about coloured linens when I was in my first few apartments. Everything was white--or a very pale pastel when I was growing up.
