That's right up there with a line from a male hairstylist when I told him I wanted a "wash n wear" style. He said, "But ladies love to spend time in front of the mirror fixing their hair."
I had just had a baby and hearing that nearly sent me around the bend. I still get exercised thinking about it and it was 30 years ago.

I came across this picture inside a house:

I typed Pantone Green on it so I would
recognize it for posting but not sure if
it's the same or not.
Thought this house looked interesting
though.

That's a neat picture, Mousie. I think wild colors on walls were much more common in olden days. Realtor White is a recent development.

I needed a new couch.  I went to the furniture store.  I was hoping for sage green.  My living room gets a lot of light that tends to make things look more grey than they are.  The perky salesperson showed me one that I knew would look grey, not sage, when it hit my living room.  She smiled and said "But grey is so trendy right now, don't you want to be young and modern?".   Sometimes I think my life motto is "There are some people who are still alive simply because I don't want to go to prison" lol.

How did you hold back on that one! LOL  First off she called you old!  And like most here, I could give a flip about what is trendy or modern, that somebody (and I don't know who) happens to say it is! Sage and grey are two different colors, and you should know better then her what it will look like in your home.  Trying a little hard for that commission,was she!?

NO, I don't want to be young and modern.  I am 64, quite happy being here.  Been there, done that, it was over-rated!!  I am not a keep up with the joneses person.  I could care less what is new and trendy.  And yes, there is a big difference between sage and grey.

I like the color.

There were more pictures on that site using darker shades of it - looks quite "tame" when it is darkened.

I like this color better than some of the other colors that have been used.


As far as comments that are in the "how to respond to?" category - My ex DIL said to me (about 28 years ago) "You were beautiful when you were young!"

Another lady said to me (about two months ago) "I can tell you were really pretty when you were young!"

Okay - so I've gotten old - and I'm not particularly thrilled with the reflection I see in the mirror - but still!

Well it wasn't planned but I seem to be using the 2017 color in the new decor for our front bath.  This picture started it.  Now I'm pulling out the colors in the picture as I buy towels, & bath accessories.

Oh, I get it now! That's giving it back to them!  ;)
I dreamt last night that I went shopping with my
mother and my aunt and we came across some really
nice dresses and they FIT me!
Somehow putting on these dresses made my bumps
and lumps disappear.
Why did I wake up? ::)

Love your response Glass!  When I was 39, I was raising my step grandson...he was about 6 months, then at 42 along came his sister and I raised her too till she was 5, she was the one adopted by my niece.  Anyway with the Grandson, I had a cashier at WalMart say to me "How old is he?", I tell her, then she says....."I hope this is your last one!"  I just said "probably not!"

Love this greens and golds and cream!! How pretty your bathroom will be. I need new towels. The other day my husband said his towel was "just a rag" At about 30 years old, I couldn't disagree. I was just going to buy white ones when I see them on sale, but now you have given me the idea to decorate with nice ones.

Well it wasn't planned but I seem to be using the 2017 color in the new decor for our front bath.  This picture started it.  Now I'm pulling out the colors in the picture as I buy towels, & bath accessories.

Funny you mention the creams.  When we were at Bed Bath & Beyond my husband kept gravitating to the cream towels.  I kept going to the darker brown towels.  This is our main bath and the one that DH uses. All I could think of was how those light colored towels were going to look after constant use.  We settled on a medium brown.  lol   I have some solid green & gold with cream jacquard hand towels to put out when we have company.

Mousie, I am with you, I choose what makes me happy.  I want to do a green quilt, not solid green ya know, variations.  I have no idea of the pattern though.  It's an idea in waiting.  I have a Celtic Illusions I am in the process of making, it's in burgundy.  I also have to make 3 baby quilts before March.  And I am starting a new BOM at one of the LQS's we go to.  It's a black and white themed quilt.  Last years was yellows blues and white.  I normally do not 'go with the flow' of trends.  They always come and go.
