You all left the sweetest most kind comments on my kitchen! Thank you!
I thought I would answer a couple of questions that you asked.......
Where did I get the curtains? Well, my sweet dear husband made them for me! I picked out the fabric, and he whipped them up on his ANTIQUE sewing machine! He already knew how to sew when I married him, so that was quite the bonus in addition to all his other wonderful qualities!
Here is the view from that window. The curtains are lighter than they appear here, but it was hard to get the lighting right for both indoors and out!

A photo he took just yesterday out that window, of all the cardinals gathering round. He keeps them well fed. But before you go thinking he's too perfect, when I was downloading these photos to the computer, there was also a photo he had snuck and taken of my backside in my pink rose jammies. Stinker!! (okay, I still think he's perfect! :)

A couple of you also asked Did I make the pillows shown on my bench. Actually, I made the one on the right, out of an old cutter quilt; I just love those roses. The other one was an eBay purchase, and it's really beautiful. I haven't been able to locate the seller again though, but she certainly did nice work!!
As always, thank you for taking the time to visit with me! I wish you all really could come for tea in my cottage kitchen!! :)

Hi Becca,
Every time I see cardinals I am so sad that we don't have them in California.
I'm glad you do though.

Becca, Hi kid!! Yes the kitchen was great, but oh my I love the view outside your window!! We have only mini dots of snow at the street curbs, all brown grass! Gosh if were lucky we may get 6-8 inches tonite! I love my snow and winter went to fast for me! Your cardinals are the closest to any I've seen all winter, which is so very strange!! A sewing hubby? I'd be happy to have one who would take a picture! Love, Lori
