Orange you glad you came?

Ok I am starting to get crazy over here with colors.  What I realized the other day, and for those of you who contemplate using yellow on your walls.  I am here to tell you GO FOR it! Every accessory I put in my kitchen has seemed to go.  At least in my eyes which well maybe that is not such a good thing....but truly I think it does.  On my ventures last week of garage salen' I came across a few things that I was not sure what I would do with them, but bought them anyhow because they where so cheap.  In the meantime, I was making some pretty orange burlap pillows. I do not sew and I can tell you stitch witch is my friend.  So easy to make a pillow it was ridiculous.  Loved the orange color, and burlap is cheap too, 2.99 a yard and if you have a coupon you can get it really cheap.  I knew I had to put something on the pillows but had no clue what I wanted.  That was until I saw these textured like doilies...I guess they are....there where a whole bunch for 1.00...loved the colors so I grabbed them.  When I came home that is when I realized what I would do with them.  I also have made a new table runner, which was also a no sew, no brainer project for me.  I say this because all you girls who say I can't do that, or I you don't! If I can do it, anyone can.  I am no rocket scientist believe me! I decided I would set the table fun today.  So funny too, if you have kids you really have to see this you tube son Jack just happened to be watching it when I was setting the table...we have good energy like was hilarious! So let me start with the pillows I made.
I really do not know what those doilies are, they are a thicker texture as you can see..those are two I layered on

Look how nice and neat I sewed NOT! As I mentioned before stitch witch....
Here is my big 1.00 garage sale purchase, I spruced it up with color.  The votives where amber which that is what I loved about it.

My home made table runner, love funk and whimsy pattern


This was the kitchen last week, which I love and of course will go back to....I just want to show you how just about every color I add with the warm yellow walls, works...or at least I think so.  I am loving the orange this week. We shall see what next week or two brings.
There you you glad you came? If you have kids, or just want a laugh, go check out this you tube video...annoying son Jack was belly laughing over this. Have a great weekend everyone.  I will be putting up my Mr. Linky every Saturday morning and it will be up until Monday night.  Have fun, and I can't wait to see some more fun finds.!
I will be linking up with a few parties myself this week. Thank you to all  of you lovely ladies for hosting, I appreciate it and love all your feedback and your comments.  Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget about my linky party coming up this Saturday and every Saturday here on in. PARTY going on now, go check it out, my recent post!

Debbie...I am an orange freak...I don't know if you have ever seen my post about it but my Kitchen Aid mixer is orange so I added little touches of it everywhere! I love it so this post is right up my alley! I may have to come steal those pillows...they are too cute for words and the table runner...DARLING!

I love your home and you!

What a great post!

I know what you mean about yellow. It goes well with orange, blue, red, green which are all the primary colors so yes, it goes well with anything. Love your table, it is so happy. I think the doilies are meant to be placemats. Aren't they big enough for plates?....Christine

Great inspiration!

I seriously laughed when you said you used "BM paint". I was thinking she used bowel movement paint! ha! I want to paint my kitchen. I was thinking a golden yellow type color. When we bought this house everything was plain white and every hinge, door knob, lights was so generic! Ugh! We even have friggin vinyl floors! ACK! I can't complain it's our first home and I was 20 and my dh was 23 at the time and the house was only 4 years old too! I'll quit complaining girl! ;)

Did you manage to get a sewing machine, trouble is you might get hooked, i buy a piece of fabric or two or three, you get the drift. Loved the fabric of your cushions. I made my curtain in something similar.

You would be so proud of me, Debbie. We just painted our main living space "Oklahoma wheat" --a very pretty yellow from Benjamin Moore. We did one accent wall in "apricot seashell" (we're going for a tropical feel here in South Florida). I love how it came out! Yay for yellow!!

btw, I've got a link to your blog hidden in my post for tomorrow. As you know, i don't blog about anything crafty so it's a bit obscure, but I think you will know the link when you see it ;)
