Picking paint colors

Have you ever had trouble picking paint colors?

What about trying to describe what colors you'd like to have?

I think of this particular scene each and every time I go into a paint store.

This is one of my all time favorite movies. I've probably seen it a dozen times. If it happens to be on TV, the world stops and I sit down and watch it. Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948) Cary Grant & Myrna Loy. The Money Pit was a remake (sort of) of this movie.

I went on a movie quest one long cold winter and watched as many Cary Grant movies as I could find. I had already been a fan but I felt I needed to see more. It made that particular winter in Coldwater, MI a lot easier to handle. I found that I really did like Cary Grant - Archibald Alexander Leach. There was another movie (comedy) where one of the main characters was named Archibald Leach. Can you name that movie?? I'll post the answer in the comments later today or tomorrow.


Watch this.. it's fun.

That is a good clip! Thanks for sharing! That is a typical male answer: red, green, yellow, white!
Men don't know many colors other than those! lol My husband did mention the color "salmon." It shocked me! Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!

I totally forgot to post the answer to the Archie Leach question.

John Clease played Archie Leach in "A Fish Called Wanda" and it was indeed a nod to Cary Grant.
