Cafe Curtains

Last night, I stitched up some cafe curtains for my eat-in kitchen.  I needed a little something to dress up the window and tie the red accents together.  As you all know, I love poppy red and aqua as a color combo.  Its cheery. Its inviting. And best of all, it isn't too serious.



Curtain material is by Amy Butler.

The print on the right is wrapping paper (4 bucks) from Paper Source.

Hook over my sink is from Pier 1 Imports - like a hundred years ago.

Vintage tablecloth I picked up at a thrift store in Oregon.

The side of my fridge.

Lovely. You've inspired me to finally set up the old sewing machine a friend gave me. Have the manual, finally, & will clear off the table & get to it.

Thanks for the peek (I love the red w/turquoise as well.)

Cheers & thanks.

SOOOOO great! I love red and turquoise...and you're so right, maybe because it isn't too serious. I never thought about that! Those chairs are FAB! And I'm such a huge Amy Butler fan...those curtains are awesome! LOVE!!!
