Matchy - Matchy - Monday ...

I fell for it.  Hook. Line. Sinker.

Normally I am not an MM girl.  But I wanted the simplicity and continuity of the Buffalo Plaid in my kitchen.  
Chairs Painted ... do you have a guess?  Gloss Black.  
Go figure.  I know.

The Rooster Pillow is an old favorite ... she can stay.
 If she's nice to her new friends.

Next Up?  Window Treatments and Fluff.
And the New Fridge? In the House. 
And yes, two of the window mullions are missing.
I will fix that.

Thanks for following along my kitchen journey!

Thank you Grace!

While I was unplugged a couple of weeks ago ... and Catching a Breath I picked up the March InStyle Magazine.

And Found Grace!

This is It!

You know I've been wanting this.

So Grace gave me the inspiration to move forward with my Buffalo Plaid.  
The Yellow and Red and Black spoke to me. 

This sweet girl that sat in our living room for years and she just got all gussied up and Moved to the Kitchen.

A Pop of Yellow Happiness is keeping the kitchen fresh
and even sunny with snow still in the window!

Window treatments to be made ... and yes, I am ignoring the fact that there is a door behind the sofanowbanquette.
Because I don't want the door there.
I have dismissed it.
Show you how we do that as the kitchen progresses!

It's all in the Details.

Thank You Grace.

It's Easter this weekend. 
Which makes me think of Pinks and Greens and springtime.  Which makes me think of Summer.  
Which makes me think of Picnics.  
Which makes me think of Gingham.

Some people think Gingham is Old Fashioned.  I like to think of it as "Little Buffalo Plaid".  

And that, my friends, is NOT old fashioned!

I know you have seen this kitchen before.  I can't move on.



Which makes me think of SeerSucker.  
 New Englanders don't really connect with it.

We are culturally "SeerSuckered" into a vortex with this conversation.


And bow ties ... I won't even go there in this post.  

Back to SeerSucker.


Now that I have come out of the basement for my ORC ... the upstairs is getting painted ... 

The outside yard looks like a disaster zone. Melting ice and snow and firewood strewn about ... my dogs think firewood is a bone.

Do you see why I am already focusing on a SeerSucker Spring and Summer!

Do you ...

I am hoping to do all Three ... Hope you'll Come Back and Watch me Play!!
