True Colors Thursday - Pearl Gray

I'm playing True Colors with Reilly and Denny again this week.

This week's color is pearl gray~

Mom can't wait for color in the garden.  It's so drab in February. 
 This is a fire back that leans against the back wall of a fireplace.  It's made of cast iron. It absorbs the heat and throws more of it back into your room rather than sending it up and out the chimney.   

The twist~

 A gray day with our Witch Hazel coming into bloom!
See you all next week!

Love ya lots,
Mitch

  3. We never heard of a fire back either! Must be one of those old time Yankee inventions :)
    It's very nice and so is the garden pedastal. Thanks for showing them to us!

  4. I love grey as a neutral, but generally do pair it with a big, strong splash of color!

  8. It also looks like pearl gray here today. Your Mom always finds such great things to show off the colors. Mom had never seen a fireback screen. It not only is beautiful but sounds like it does a good job of helping with heat!!

  11. The temperatures here are shooting for 70 today, so maybe spring is on the way.

  18. Hey there Mitch,
    Hope your family is feeling more at peace after Maggie's passing. I had to pop around today to see how you are doing. Must admit Grey is not my favourite colour, but your post suggests the hope of Spring - and that is always positive.
