Breakfast Nook
















Ok I finally decided to share some photos of my house! It is a mess and I am sad to say we haven't completely decorated yet but it was a lovely weekend and I unpacked a few boxes from the garage and found some of my goodies I have been missing like these plates! I decided to hang above our dining nook.










The curtains in our nook are vintage pillow case panels purchased as new old stock, they were never used as intended and when I came across them I knew I had the perfect spot for them. There were two pink, two mint and one lavender so I just clipped them up on rods and voila curtains!










The rest of my house may need some attention but I am pleased to have completed this little project this weekend.
