Introducing: "Grey Dey Thursdey" Linky Party....

Have you noticed?
"Grey" is invading our "deys!" And in a BIG "wey!" You'd have to be living under a rock ( a grey one) not to notice how this subtle....soothing....and calming color has influenced almost every aspect of our creative world. Once considered a "wall flower", this gorgeous color is now becoming the life of the party! And, speaking of, I'm ready to host one! Won't you join me here, every Thursdey,  as I embark on a mission to add " a little grey to my dey?"

First things first....let's take a look at why this glorious color has gone unnoticed for so long by taking a look at its' definition....

  3. Wishing you much luck on your new linky party. You know I love grey and will hopefully be having photos to share soon as I'm in the process of finishing off my potting shed and there is lots and lots of grey in there:-)


  4. Yea for grey. I loved grey before grey was "in"! I did two houses with grey carpet through out, and it wasn't easy finding the carpet I liked at the times. Our current house is painted grey, but not as dark as we would have liked. We were told to hurry and pick our house color and we knew we wanted grey. Unfortunately we didn't take the time to have our choice mixed so we could see it on the house, and in bright sun it looks almost white. Good cloudy days (grey days) you can see it is in fact grey. Best of luck.

  5. P.S. after the hurry hurry, it was at least 2 months before they actually painted our house (it was new construction). We picked out the color and moved on to other things with building!

  6. How lovely to have a new linky party, woohoo! Just photographed a few greys and will get the post ready soon. x

  7. Nothing grey in my pink home, but I love the idea of coloured grey like we say in painting : according to the mix to make the grey we can have a hot pale grey or a slight cold grey The only dull grey is when we mix black an white.
