I'm so excited!

I am a huge fan of FALL. I love the season and I love the warm colors.
That was pretty much the deciding factor when choosing our interior colors. We have a very open floor plan, very little walls dividing the rooms.  That can pose a problem when trying to create warmth.  The color we have chosen for most of our living space is called Butter. It is by restoration hardware.  We love it, and the nice thing about this color, is just about everything goes with it.
I just love the backdrop here, love Mother nature! THis is why I keep these windows free of window treatments.
This side window brings in a lot of natural light, I need blinds...HERE are my new valances! I love them....New valances are from Walmart! Loves them.....

Of course it led to a mini project...Have you ever seen me paint anything white? NO, but I like it, not sure for how long though.
And here it was black

What glorious Fall indeed! We are at peak now.

If you are new to my blog. I would like for you to take a few moments to see some of my new features.  I am on a mission to helping all the newbie blogs out. Although, I have only been blogging a year myself, I know how it feels to be the new kid in town.  Please check out my tutorials, and coffee chat series.
Also Every Monday I will be doing a newbie linkie party for blogs 6 months or less and/or less than 100 followers.  The first one was a huge success.

Debbie, I'm so glad to see you! And I LOVE your valances - in part, because I have the SAME VALANCES in my kitchen!!! I love them, too, love the homey colors but more modern (less country-ish) way they put the treatments together. Glad to know I have good taste - if you have them, they must be good design! Thanks for letting us know what you're up to!

The only reason that I did not purchase them is that I thought they would cover up a stained glass that I have in the window...but after seeing them actually hanging in your pictures, I might go on Monday and see about purchasing them for our office....they are quite lovely!
