Sometimes You Need a Little Spring

When I first met this bath,
the walls were as white as the snow that drifted outside the window.

But painting the room soft green (BM Hollingworth - HC 141),
made it feel cozier, somehow.
Despite the chilly temperature outside,
 it felt like a spring day inside! 

Not wanting any drapery at the window,
I was asked to paint a some vines and flowers
in the alcove surrounding the tub.

But here is the most beautiful thing about this bath ~

It was lovingly planned by a husband for his wife,
who, disabled by disease, cannot do these things.

Wanting to refresh her surroundings and uplift her spirits,
he chose new colors for their home.
The master bedroom and bath is washed in pale green and soft pastels.
Her favorites.
It's a very feminine room, certain to please a very special woman. 

On a cold winter day,
Love Blooms.


  Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast;
 it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things,
believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
