A red curtain accent is just the right touch


I like to read a few local and world news articles when I first wake up in the morning and some days like today I have to say out loud, "what the hell is wrong with people?"  Ya know?

OK, you know how my sober daughter painted her (my Mamas) kitchen cabinets lavender with the red stenciled roses in each corner?  Well I went by there yesterday and she has finished it all off by painting the walls around it in a yellow and orange sponge paint....sure, go ahead and read the paragraph again.  It looks just like a cartoon kitchen or one you might color in a Snow White coloring book.  It looks charming on paper but you would never have the guts in real life to do it.  She has topped it off with a row of dollar store wind chimes hanging from the ceiling that tinkle lightly as you walk through, and a candy apple red curtain on the window over the sink.   The genuine smile on her face as she held her arms out in game show fashion with a loud "TA DA" convinced me to clutch my heart and say "well this just looks fabulous darlin'!" 

Enjoy your day.

Like the pics of dogs. I can look at Great Dane pics all day even though I have the real thing right next to me, chewing my toes.

I love your daughter -- you can never get too much of a good thing.

This makes the buttercream yellow I have picked out for mine seem absolutely ordinary. She sounds exquisite.

I love color too, but that sounds like a circus. yet at my work I tell people all the time: if you aren't remodeling to sell the house and you plan on staying awhile...do what YOU want to do and to heck with everyone else. I applaud her bold choices.

It sounds like a very happy kitchen. Gotta love a happy kitchen!

She's such a colorful young woman. If it makes her happy, so be it.

Love the dogs pic. I'll put in on Facebook, I think.

Oh my gosh, bless her heart! Such brave choices. If you look at where those choices are coming from...places of hope, new beginnings, having a place of her own....that kitchen is a beautiful message to all who have eyes to see. Like you mama Pam. Bless you too.
