Mission Accomplished!

Last weekend my sister Nancy and I took a trip to
Fayetteville, Tennessee, where our parents live.
It was a lovely family weekend and we celebrated our
Dad's birthday with our brother Bill and his wife Pat.
However, the weekend had a second purpose for me.
I cannot go to Fayetteville without visiting
one of my "happy places."
I have been on a long hunt
for fabrics for new window treatments...

In the dining room - going soon.

in my entry, living room and dining room.
I found it!
I had actually bought fabrics last winter to redo them,
but for some reason had not gotten around to making them.
In the meantime I've been rethinking my redecorating plans
for those rooms and decided the fabric wasn't "right."
So, I hoped, hoped, hoped I'd find something at
Sir's that would work.

In the entry...goodbye!
Then I saw the yellow fabric above.
It totally hooked me with the blue twigs.
Who can explain why we fall in love with
some things and not others?

Living room - time for a change!
I'll be coordinating the yellow above with ...

...this pretty blue graphic.
I know these fabrics are "right" because I could hardly wait
to get started on the new window treatments.
I started cutting yesterday...
Updates to follow!!!

Yellow with blue fabric is such a favorite of mine. One of the prettiest kitchens I was ever in had yellow walls, Spode Blue Italian plates on the walls and 2 red checked wing chairs drawn up to the fireplace. I've never forgotten it and I think it would still be in style today.

Have fun sewing!

I am such a fan of yellow.. as well as orange (tangerine, persimmon,etc). This fabric is fabulous and you have chosen a wonderful coordinating fabric. Will you be creating the same valance or something different? Can't wait to see the reveal!

I was out looking to see what blogs some of my followers where following and I saw, "Days At Buttermilk Cottage". With a name like that it has got to be a wonderful place to visit.
So, here I am :)
We have many mutual followers so I think that we were destined to cross paths at some point. I love your blog. It is a delightful mix of decorating ideas and yummy recipes. I have gone through several posts, and I'm planning on going back through even more :)
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you over to follow me back. I have met the nicest people in blog-land :)
Your newest blogging sister, Connie :)
