Our Country Kitchen: A Pre-Cottage Remodel Post

 Before I start to paint the kitchen...
I wanted to try and get some decent pictures.
I guess this is a great big.... BEFORE post for you!
 This summer we built the new screen room right off  the kitchen.
 My big fear is that it would make the kitchen too dark.
It is fine on sunny days, but a bit dark at times.
But I am thinking a lighter shade on the two main walls will help dramatically.
 So the pumpkin will be going a pale robin's egg blue.

Country Gardens: Daylily Days of Summer

The holiday weekend is over....
And our visitors at the lake are gone home.
We have spent most of the day in the big lake.
Eating leftovers and floating in the water.
A day of rest.
We had 13 kids here till 11 pm last night.
They all had fun... but I was beat!

 So this evening lets enjoy some of the wonderful daylilys blooming...

Sewing Burlap and Lace Curtains


 Hi there, welcome back!
I spent a good part of yesterday fiddling in the kitchen.
And after about three months... 
finally fixed my burlap curtains!
 I have a small kitchen window over the sink and a patio door in the kitchen.  I wanted to use my inspiration fabric... a sweet rose print for the new re-do coming soon.

Vintage Style Decor: New Wallpaper In The Entry

So in the middle of doing a New Screen Porch Addition---
I decide it would be fun to redo the front entry.
Yes, I might be a little nuts...
But I found this paper that matches my Table Chandelier perfectly!
And it was ON SALE... majorly on sale... for $11 a roll. 
It was destiny I tell you...
Light and bright... and pretty... and cottage....
Lets take a closer look!
