The Spice Cafe'

Hello Everyone!
Happy 1st Day of Spring!
I hope you had a beautiful day in your town.
I went shopping for new living room drapes and
ended up using them in our kitchen dinette after all.
Isn't it funny how things work out sometimes?
Join me for a tour!
They are called Multi Spice and are from JCPenney.
*All photos enlarge when clicked.*
I already had the gold cafe' style valances.
I added the sheer drapes to really fill up this large window.
It feels like a comfy, cozy cafe' now. Love it!
Can you see the jewel tone colors and the design?
They were a perfect match to our kitchen.
Here is a glowing nightime view.
If you enlarge this photo you can see the print.
Even though spring is in the air I felt like comfort food tonight.
I made a healthy turkey spaghetti. Yum!
I also felt like burning a sweet gingerbread candle.
Why not? No rules in our home. It smells delicious.
I'll show you where I moved the previous drapes soon.
~*~
Have a wonderful week!

Beautiful, I like how they allow the light in but gives you privacy at the same time.

Turkey is so much better than Hamb., we use it because of Husbands health issues.

Have a great week!

Your sheers look beautiful next to your wall color. It is funny how we start with one plan and it turns into something else. Everything looks beautiful.

Your curtains worked out perfectly. Such warm and rich colors. I've bought a lot of curtains from JCP and people are always surprised when I tell them where my window treatments are from. I like that you can order the longer lengths straight off the rack.
I also burn holiday candles year round! Burning Yankee's Fall Harvest right now. Just love the way it smells.
