Can't believe is already Wednesday!
This week has been so busy for me and no matter how much I try, I can't catch up. :)

In the last few weeks, I have made some small changes around our home. 
I will share them with you as I have a little time to put together a post.

Today, I am sharing with you our breakfast area and the changes I made to give it a lighter look 
for the warmer months. 

I bought the buffalo check fabric back in February, but with the arrival of our kids and grandson, 
everything had to be put on hold.
In the last few weeks, I have been sewing a bit at a time and it is finally all coming together.
The first thing I did was take down the old drapes, remove old hardware, patch up and paint nail holes.
The space was then ready to add my new drapes.

I also made a simple "kitchen" sign to go over the window.

Next, I made new pillow covers for the chairs and window seat.

For the table, I made a simple cream linen runner to which I added a strip of burlap and lace ribbon 
to give it a little character. :)

And I added as a centerpiece the glass bottle crate I made last week.

I am sure I will make some changes as the Summer months get here, but for now, we are enjoying the Spring colors.

Thank you all so much for your visit and for always taking the time to leave me such wonderful comments.
I will be back to share the rest of the kitchen and living area. 
See you all soon!


  1. Love the new drapes and table vignette. Gorgeous.

  2. Lovely Maria. Spring time makes me want to change things up.

  3. I love your table vignette but those bird cage and pillows by the window is darling!

  4. You are so smart! I love all the changes. I re-did some curtain rods last week. What a long process! Your new curtains are beautiful. I might have to copy your kitchen sign :-)

  5. Loving your new curtains, pillows, and runner! What a pretty fresh look for spring. And your box of flowers is perfection.

  6. Maria E - wow this is such a pretty change - looks wonderful!

    Well done, ma'am!

  7. I love the sign, the pillows, the centerpiece, the runner...I guess I love the whole look of your kitchen! Fabulous!

  8. I love it all! The drapes are perfect and all your pillows add a nice touch. The centerpiece is so cute- I can't believe you have time to make all this!

  9. Very nice did a wonderful job!

  10. Sentence after sentence you've written says "I made" in it - what talent! From all your sewing projects to the bottle crate centerpiece and the way you've put it together, it all looks terrific!

  11. The drapes look awesome ... love the coordinating pillows, too! And, the centerpiece is beautiful (full of Spring)! May I ask where you found your cute bird pillow?

  12. So cute! I don't know which thing I love more-the bird pillow, the table runner, or centerpiece. I was going to say it all "screams" Spring but it really just SIGHS Spring like "Ahhhhh"....

  13. I love the addition of buffalo checks in your house! It ties everything in so nice! I'm thinking about using it in our new kitchen, as well since it's classic and so versatile!

  14. Everything looks so pretty, Maria! Your drapes are so pretty and the color so soft! Love your deep window sill and your pretty pillows you've made too! Your home always looks gorgeous! Happy spring!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
