Are those curtains?

Nope... they are my vintage red handle pieces. My kitchen here is HUGE and I love it! The red handle stuff was hanging on the wall where the white hutch/desk is and it was in front of my window but I moved some things around. I love having my Lazy Boy recliner in there. It makes a nice place to sit and stitch or do whatever while I am waiting on things to cook. My friend Leslie had done this in a window back in Germany...she is the decorating queen. I love using things in a unique way.
Today was Ben and Madi's first day back to school. I am thrilled with their teachers! Last year Madi had Mrs. Fletcher for kindergarten and now this year Ben got Mr. Fletcher for 3rd grade. Needless to say we love the Fletcher's! Both kids think it's cool...Ben I think likes have a man for a teacher. Both of my kids wanted me to come eat lunch with them today...everyone keeps telling me that one of these days they won't want me to so of course I was there. Ben has lunch 1130-1200 and Madi 1200-1230 so it works out well.

That lazy boy looks so cozy, I can just imagine sitting there reading or doing some cross stitch. I have a lazy boy too, but mine's not that pretty, it's pretty ugly actually. Your kids are darling, how fun that they want you to come eat lunch with them.

Alright, earlier I said I'd love to visit with you in your super cozy cute kitchen with a java but after the night I've had (C ate dirt from a grow a sunflower project I had set aside for B, fell and hit her head, fun stuff like that...) I'm changing my mind to wanting to come have a bottle of vino in your cozy chair!!! ;) xo

I cannot believe your school has already started. School doesn't start around here until the 18th or so. I bet you miss having them at home!
