Stormy Projects...

One of my favorite perks since retiring last September is being able to stay home when the weather's nasty! There's just something about being in my home on a nasty day that makes my heart happy. With possible severe weather forecast for our region this afternoon...once I heard thunder rumbling, I dashed outside in hopes of capturing a photo of lightning. I looked down the corner and saw the rain working up the street. In a matter of seconds it was raining sideways and the wind began to blow like crazy!. Inside I went (without my photo). Mother Nature puts on quite a show!

With Spring being the season of renewal, I've been making simple decor updates for a change of indoor scenery....

New window toppers for the common living area add a punch of color from the previous black...

I just love the fabric...a montage of vintage postal stamps and postmarks. I was drawn by the colors...the  design was a bonus in my book!!!! I still need to update my throw pillows, but haven't found any options that knock my socks off.

On to the kitchen...
I've been on the lookout for a black and white check tablecloth for the LONGEST time and finally found one that was workable. I also found a couple cute vintage-look fruit table runners that blend nicely.

A few vignettes...

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Love your updates! Your kitchen table is so warm, inviting, and invigorating--great place to start the day with coffee! Love it! And, I love being home too when it rains! I pray that I can always love the rain, as I know it has caused others to have fear! I just love the rain! Have a beautiful week Kuki!

  2. Love your table and the curtains are adorable.
    I just bought some fabric last night to show the hubby for our breakfast area. Haven't made the final decision if it's a go or not.


Did you know all people smile in the same language? I love hearing from you (smiles and all)!
