Comments, Thoughts, and Feedback

Kristin had this to say on 12.13.04:

Funny, I’ve been dwelling on this same subject lately. We buy Benjamin Moore, and they have historic colors, too. I want to paint our bedroom blue, and I’m finding that historic folks apparently didn’t much care for blue. There aren’t many shades to choose from.

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
