NOT just you.  <shudder>

Thank f**k. I was starting to think I might be going crazy with his response LOL. I mean, it's not the most offensive in the world or anything...but it's certainly NOT what I would actively seek out...just me personally. (it's not just the cupboard either... they got like magnolia/borderline eggshell tinted tiles as well. WHY?
My, how time flies....

Oh yeah, he won't be winning that one out ;) He just doesn't see a problem with eggshell/cake batter yellow cabinets. Is it just me???

Our old house was pretty much that colour throughout.  Add in a bit of mould in the damp corners and some stains and the whole place just looked dingy.  The kitchen, especially.  We still feel sorry for the missed potential of that house.  If the owners just put a little work into it, they could easily charge double what we were paying.  But I'm happy to have livedxin the dreary yellow interior for cheap while we saved up for House.  Because now we have House!

Light grey sounds lovely.  Clean and crisp and elegant.  Fight the good fight!

Wouldn't even be looking at darker than this I don't think http://orhonint.com/light-grey-kitchen-cabinets/light-grey-kitchen-cabinets-kitchen-awesome-light-grey-kitchen-cabinets-for-inspiring-your-remodelling/

Just a tiny bit of colour but a neutral type of colour. Not a random yellow tint.

Can we have a DIY house thread please? hahaha

Wow!  Those are gorgeous!

Our kitchen cabinets are SOOOO ugly.   I'm sure they would beat yours in a challenge.  I know they'd improve with new knobs, but I'd rather them stay horrifically ugly so that people KNOW I wouldn't keep them.  Nasty yellow-tinted off white.  Looks like someone smoked for 20 years (though it wasn't a smokers house).  And this awful arch thing on the cabinets.  They are baaaaad.

And we have laminate counters that look like butcher block.  <shudder>.

I am literally a child because when I see the word "knob" I giggle and there's a shop that is called like The Knob Shop or something like that in Sandhurst I think it is and I laugh every time we drive by.

hahah we might have similar cabinets. Perhaps it was a Berkshire fad? I am going to try to convince my husband that gutting and re-doing the whole kitchen before moving is maybe a must LOL. Even if it's just a cheaper Ikea jobby! Either that or we'll need to keep the carcases and get new cabinet doors.

Oooh, yeah.  That is exactly what I pictured when you said grey.  It's soft, it's clean, it's fresh.  I could live with that.

Oh my gosh!  This!  We were at the British Museum of Natural History and saw this just all nonchalantly sitting in a case.  We could not let it go unnoticed!



EDIT: The compression is terrible.  The specimen card says "rounded, knob-like mass / Cleator Moor, Cumberland".

Also, JF, I totally FB'd you earlier today hahaha

I just saw! I don't use the app and don't have Messenger, and I spent the morning poking at my phone.  Now I'm on my laptop so I can see it!  Sorry if I'm ever slow to respond over there.  I refuse to let Facebook know who I really am.  :P

yeah I thought it looked crisp and fresh too.

hahaha NICE. Was giggling the other day when I told my husband he should just put a knob of butter in something LOL.

hahaha no it's fine, I'm always slow to respond too! I was just thinking about you regarding your skills today and this DIY topic reminded me! haha

Heyjay, those are beautiful photos!

I’ve never been to the Mexican beaches despite my father being born in Mexico and having four Mexican-born grandparents. None of them could ever understand why anyone would go there willingly on vacation. I guess I just sort of never really thought of it as a destination before. Thanks to your photos, I may change my mind.

Definitely go!

The beaches on the Gulf side are probably not that nice - Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Tabasco, etc. as I never remember Texas beaches being anything worth bothering about.  But the Caribbean beaches are definitely where it's at.  Unfortunately the seaweed has been a terrible problem this year, but it didn't stop us from having a super nice week away!

ETA let me not forget my manners... Thank you for the compliment!

Finally filtered through my photos from Japan in the last 2 months (very slow progress LOL) and just thought I'd refresh the thread to share some of them and see if anybody has any new photos to share :)

My, how time flies....
