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.
