One In Every Color- Colander

Like for spaghetti?My favorite are red...and green...and orange...and blue...okay I like purple too. They go with my fiestaware Except I would not put them in my cupboards. I would hang them on my red wall. They would stand out like art. I guess the red one wouldnt stand out. Hmmm it's a dilema. Red wall, red colander. Maybe I could hang the red one on a small section of dark blue wall? Dark blue like the cobalt fiesta dishes.Actually I could hang the red, green and orange in increasing sizes on a wall the color of the cobalt blue fiesta plates, and find something else interesting to hang on my red wall. Thanks for helping me hash that one out readers.
I think my father is going to have a heart attack when he hears about all the colors I want to paint my walls. He's a white wall sort of man.

I'm not a white wall person, but if you're color-crazy, white just might be the perfect backdrop. Love, Janice Check my blog tomorrow it's going to have a tribute to your mom.

I would have to agree with Little Spouse. I think a white wall would be a perfect backdrop for all your color. Any my personal favorite. Why, orange, of course!

I fully support the multi-colored home. We have a family law prohibiting white walls.

We have the same white-wall prohibition law in our home! Bring on the color, Jessica!

red wall yes im with you still, callender what about a black one with white writing/ink. This way you could follow the whole lady bug theme. However we are going to have to discuss a little the shear amount of color. We only need/ will most likely have room for one strianer.

I love the way you talk us through your thought processes, or is it thought processies. I don't know maybe it is neither. But I digress, or is it digest. No that is what we do after a big meal, or hopefully we do. Oh yeah...back to the walls. White walls are so 80s', you might as well get a frizzy perm and spike up your bangs and wear oversized pants that you sinch with a belt up 3 inches above your waist. About your dad taste, he drives around San Fransisco in a yellow bug with daisy wheels. Don't get your decorative advice from him.
I love the colors, but you might want to omit the color you finally decide to paint the wall.

No white walls, only one colander, who makes these rules! Luke, you've heard about about "grate lighting"? They also create neat hanging lights with colanders. Thus the saying the more the merrier! Janice

O.K. I resemble the white wall man comment. There's not a single white wall in my current house, except in the garage. Also, it depends whether you own the house or whether you rent it. Landlords don't want colored walls. They want the same off white color on every single wall of every single apartment and house; Makes it easier to spot paint. Love, Your Dad.
