Ok, I am still learning! But I am giving it my best try! LOL
I get so much inspiration looking through all the fabulous blogs out there
that I feel like my mind is just going and going 24/7.

I have to confess that before I started blogging, I had no idea what 
the word " vignette" meant. I had to look it up!!! LOL

 That is what happens when English is your second language! :)
 No shame on that! 
My Grandmother always said you never go to bed without learning 
something new, and I think she was very right!

Well, I guess I was doing vignettes around the house for a long time
 and I didn't even know it!

Here is a few in my kitchen and a small one in my laundry room.
I have to tell you I don't have a specific color theme in my kitchen.
I buy and make what I like and I hope it all blends well together.

I may change some of it in the kitchen this summer to give it a brighter 
look, but for now, this is what it looks like.

This is one of my favorite corners in the kitchen. 
It took me a long time to find a lamp small enough to fit under the cabinets.
I new this one was perfect when I found it at Kirklands.
I love the small pull chain to turn it on and off!

 In that corner, sometimes I use my butterfly picture and sometimes, the rooster picture.
I found the pair of rooster pictures at Kirklands also and when I saw they had the Spanish theme, they just had to come home with me.

 With the light off

This other corner in my kitchen always has something good going on. LOL
My daughter loves to bake, so she keeps my little ceramic cake stand supplied at all times.
I had these uplights for years and they are nice for extra lighting in the kitchen.

 On the other side of the kitchen, I have the other rooster picture, some glass jars and a metal chest with flowers that I change with the seasons.

In the butler's pantry, a little wine and grapes theme

 By the window, I have this pretty accent table my husband bought me
 for Christmas a couple of years ago. 
I use it to store some of my cook books and on top I have one of my 
glass cake stands with some faux breads a a little greenery.

And finally, a small vignette in my laundry room.
I know, crazy! but, I had to make my daily laundry experience a 
little more enjoyable! LOL

 So sorry for all the pictures! I just have a hard time choosing the best ones! LOL
Still waiting for the sun to come out around here! Can you tell? :)
I hope you are all having a good week.
Thank you for coming by to visit!

Winter weather go away!

I have to confess, it is starting to get to me!
I can't stand anymore this wet and gloomy weather.
Yes, I know! We need the water! LOL

To make myself feel better, I started working on my outdoor Spring decor,
making a new wreath for the door and some pretty pillows for the bench.
Will share some pictures if and when the sun comes out again.
It is not looking very promising right now.

Here is a sneak peek of the colors I am using.
Trying to do something different this year.

Homemade valance for my craft room

I have been trying to figure out for a while now what to do
with the window in my soon to be craft room.

I wanted to decorate with something girly, but at the same time,
I want plenty of light coming through the window.

I went to Hancock Fabrics a few days ago and let me tell you, they have so many new 
Spring and Summer prints, that I was like a kid in a candy store. LOL
And, most of them, are 30% off right now.

A hundred projects were going through my head at once.
It was so hard to decide!

Finally, yesterday, I had the time to make my new valance and 
this is what I came up with.

All I bought was the material, some red tassels and a pretty red ribbon.
Total cost for this project $11.00

Well, that's it! 
What do you guys think?
I have been trying to work on this room little by little, when a have some free time.
I am working on decorating the top shelves now.
Will share those with you soon.

Thank you for stopping by!
