Hello friends! Life has been busy around here at the Forever Cottage...kids to get ready for school, parents visiting and oh, that "little" project I have going for the Junk Bonanza (which I will blog about tomorrow - complete with some sneak peek pictures!).
In all my "spare time", I found a very interesting article yesterday in my local Minneapolis Star Tribune newspaper titled "Decor or diamonds?".
According to a survey done by Kilz Roller Report (they make a damn fine primer, thank you very much), 85% of women would prefer a $5,000 home makeover to a pair of diamond earrings of the same value! And 88% of men would prefer a $5,000 deck or garage makeover to an expensive watch.
The survey results also reveal:
> While 51% of women don't like the decor in at least one room in their best friend's home, only 55% would tell them so.
And not surprising....
> 66% of men prefer neutral walls over bold colors.
And the one statistic to give us all hope....
> 88% of men say they would invest in home decor to make their current partner happy!
So where do you stand? Diamonds or decor?
I certainly know where I stand, and more importantly so does my hubby...
