French Cafe Decor with Studio e Peppered Cotton!

( this collection is called peppered cottons fancies)

WE are very pleased ( my beloved loves it) it is very welcoming
with a touch of class ,  feminine accents and a richness that makes
 any man feel comfortable.

The white lace is compliments of my Nanny's bed skirts..
I have a few of them so I took them apart and added about 8 inches
of Peppered Cotton to lengthen it a bit. I sewed it like a pillow case,
no stitches, invisible seams....

In fact none of these panels have any visible stitches....they are heavy enough
they drape perfectly..

I placed them on swing rods, so we can open the window wider if needed
and I can pull out the rods to close them panels in more...

 I have a few more RED accents to add....will do that later this week...

I already found my seat in the corner and watched my birds this morning
with my cup of coffee to begin my day...

I wanted a kitchen  valence to match but this time I flipped the white on the top,
so any splashes will not stain my window treatment...
I had enough lace from my French Door Window Treatments to add
to this valence too...

Isn't it pretty...with our stainless steel appliances, it really blends in well...?

A little peak of my Coffee CUPS in the corner, all matched per shelf...

Ohhhhh and this beautiful pillow is a gift from a sweet lady who knows
our word is ALWAYS. When I opened it up, I was filled with emotion
that is hard to describe......DAISIES, gingham, my beloved holding me in his arms..
with ALWAYS beautifully hand embroidered...wellll can I say, this is something
I will cherish for many precious moments, today, tomorrow, ALWAYS! 

It fits perfectly on my window bench, a reminder that there is so much
love to cherish....

We are now off to run some errands and get ready
for a weekend of EASTER moments..

May you all have a blessed weekend....
I will be doing some stitching on my April Paper Lady too!
