Happy Valentine's Day

I was sitting at my desk thinking about Valentine's Day and then I began to see the hearts around me.

Jambalaya and Ice Cream Sandwiches

The favorite chocolate chip cookies in this house seem to be The Barefoot Contessa's Chocolate Chunk recipe.  I have made this so many times I pretty much know it by heart.

Super Bowl Ready

I'm not really one of those people who watches football but since I am hosting the family party this year I thought I would have to find a way to make it entertaining. So when I found these Super Bowl bingo cards and commercial rating cards I actually got excited for the big game.

DIY Fabric Roller Shades

AWDH Kitchen Window 2
I came across this DIY fabric covered roller shades on A Well Dressed Home.  I was totally surprised how easy they look to make, how reasonable they are and how simply beautiful they look.   Of course, I'll take the whole kitchen please. 

These DIY Shades on Cottage and Vine look awesome too with easy step by step directions. 

I have been thinking about this Striped Cordless Roman shade from Pottery Barn.  It is so clean and classic looking but at $249.00 for one, I think I can get the same look by making my own fabric roller shade.  I think I will try to make my own and see what happens.  I'm not very good at DIY stuff but I have 5 windows in the kitchen alone so it would be well worth it for me to finally purchase the ever popular glue gun. 

Now I just need to find the perfect fabric...

Making Kitchen Progress

I am so in love with these Restoration Hardware chairs and they are comfortable too.
