Jaunty or just jaundiced?
Ever wanted to know what it’s like to stand inside a box of orange Tic Tacs?  Well, now you know.  I can’t even wear orange, so I can’t imagine the horrors that I would face in the mirror of this room.  It couldn’t possibly flatter anyone’s skin tone. 
Vel was certainly ready for a change, and opted for some muted and classy colors that toned down the tangerine without giving up any eye-catchability  She probably feels 15 years younger looking in the mirror now, or at least less like she should stop by the local hospital for a bilirubin test.

    So, I’ve been following your blog for awhile and I finally had to say it – I love the transformations that you find, but what I love even more is your intro to them. Seriously, you are hilarious and I love it! If my husband is around when I am looking at your blog, I read these intros to him, and then he laughs and says I found my twin, although I am not so funny on my blog.

    Love it! Glad I discovered your blog through Vel. I also have to agree, you are hilarious! I want some tic tac now!

    I seriously can’t believe you passed up an “Orange-cha glad this isn’t your bathroom?” intro. You are obviously becoming uber sophisticated.

    I wonder if she originally painted it the orange color in the first place…the only positive about the orange is that you would not need the morning cup of coffee to wake you up. That color alone is enough of a jolt!

    So, for anyone who checked the “hmmm” column, could you please please please tell me why????? That orange is, like, being on 50 drugs at the same time.

    I’m with colleen! Why did you check the ‘hmmmm’ column? Maybe they LIKE orange tic-tacs!!! Just curious!

    @ ETB: We bought the house foreclosed and this was the original color of the powder room when we bought it. 🙂

    @ Colleen & **Mumzy: thanks!!!!
