Happy First Day of Summer

Well summer is upon us and we are finally feeling it here. I believe we actually made it into the 90s today. My kids are loving it. Swimming weather. My tomatoes are loving it too. 
Sweet 100 Tomatoes

Even though I have not painted the kitchen yet I just had to hang my new curtains in there. I think they will look great with the aqua colored walls.

Enjoy these more relaxing days. I know I am when I am not painting.

  1. The new color really will look great with the curtain. Can't wait to see it.

  2. I was going to write the same thing that Dina wrote. Those colors will be great together.

  3. Love those curtains. Yummo tomatos!

  4. Hello,
    I just visited your Blog today. I really like what your "About Me" says on simplicity. Me and my daughters just started a new Blog, and it is also about the simple pleasures of life. We would love it if you could visit us and follow. The link is: http:redrosealley.blogspot.com We recently did a post about "Home Treasures," and it will give you a chance to get to know us a little better. I was checking out your kitchen pictures, and I just loved them because my kitchen is RED, BLACK, AND WHITE also, and I have roosters all around. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

  5. I just love the fabric in those curtains!!!! sooooo cool!!!! NOT ready for this heat tho:(

  6. I really like your curtain choice. And I love Sweet 100's too. We won't be getting tomatoes for another month yet.

  7. Happy first day of summer to you too :)
    Bring on the sunshine!
    Love....I mean, LOVE the curtains!

  8. I love the sound of those aqua walls, lovely curtains,

  9. Your tomatoes look yummy. Mine are all still green. Looks like you have a busy week going on too :)

  10. Sweet! Love those curtains. I must have missed - did you make them? What a gorgeous kitchen you're going to have when all is done.

  11. Wish I had some of your great looking tomatoes. I love them, but prefer the home grown kind best.

  12. Those little tomatoes are so good that I can eat them like candy!
    I really can't wait to see your kitchen with the aqua walls and the red accents and those beautiful curtains. It's going to be stunning!
    You asked about my blog header. Those are just glittery chipboard letters from Michaels that I glued to a ribbon and strung on the bench!
    Happy REDnesday,

  13. I love to munch on cherry tomatoes!


    Woman in the scarlet coat,
    Are you heading for a boat?
    Or perhaps you need a bus
    To get far away from us.
    Whether wheels or sails you take
    Don’t forget the chocolate cake
    To sustain you on your way;
    Red-clad damsel, now we say,
    “Go with grace, enjoy the ride,
    See you on the other side!”
