Unplugged Until Summer

Hello to all my wonderful blogging peeps; 
whether you are a visitor, follower, commenter, and/or a friend,
 I would like to sincerely thank you for your interest in this little slice of my life.

These are for you:
Fluffy pink tulips from our garden along with a great big warm fluffy cyber hug. :-)

I would like to also take this opportunity to announce that Apple Blossom Dreams
 will be unplugged until June.

In June we will be plugged back in with lots of new updates from around the house and the world.

Looking forward to connecting with you then.

See you in the summer!

SMUG Fridge

I have always wanted a light blue SMEG refrigerator...
maybe someday.....but for now I have a SMUG refrigerator
and it pleases me so!
And here's how it came to be:

Our 15 year old refrigerator was painted:

BEFORE PAINT:

AFTER PAINT:
 Fridge received two fresh coats
 of latex paint in Benjamin Moore
"White Satin" after sanding and cleaning:

I realize now that I should not have painted the area where the doors seal as they stick a bit....
hindsight is 20-20!

Then I purchased some magnetic UPPER CASE letters:

And spray painted a few of them silver:

Added to the front of fridge and there you have it:
 My SMUG fridge to tide me over until I get the real thing....
I also discovered that magnets leave a mark on the refrigerator now that it is painted.
This is probably a good thing as it will keep the bazillion magnets off
 that formerly lived there. ;-)

 Oh yes, I am pleased!

Have a pleasing day!
