~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.
 with the summer light shining through them.
Now we have more of a view of our garden.
An easy way to change a room,

Carly made Stan and I dessert to celebrate.

  28. Carpets are generally more cost-effective than other types of flooring, making them a budget-friendly option for covering larger floor areas. However, it's important to note that carpets may not be suitable for areas prone to moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens. In such spaces, other flooring options like tiles, vinyl, or laminate are more appropriate.flooring carpet
