~Lighten Up Your Kitchen and Simple & Sweet Fridays #129~

Adding more light in our kitchen and family room,
 was as easy as changing out our curtains.
I have always loved our burgundy and gold pen striped curtains,
but we needed a change.
Before our daughter, Katie, moved to England,
I had her help me find new curtains and hang them.
Boy, did it make a difference with the sunlight.
We found the embroidery curtains at
 Bed, Bath and Beyond.
I fell in love with the small flowers embroidered on them.
The white corbels are a good accent piece 
with the new curtains.
I love the softness in the room now.
Especially,
 with the summer light shining through them.
Now we have more of a view of our garden.
An easy way to change a room,
~NEW CURTAINS~

Carly made Stan and I dessert to celebrate.

  12. I've heard that strawberry and black pepper ice cream is really good, one of these evenings, when it cools down, I am going to try and make some. I love the curtains from BB & B, I am stopping there this weekend hoping to find similar-love the way they lighten up your room.
