Home Sweet Home # 66

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!   I have a little before and after here today in my kitchen.  Over two years ago I put these vintage seed catalog images on the wall and they really are still beautiful but they look like fall.  So I wanted a little change.

I couldn't resist the menu board trend and had the perfect spot for it.   Now even though I live in a house with all guys, they appreciated it when I upgrade the decor to reflect the finer things in life.  

Although, they can't resist taking a wise crack about my cooking.  The post its say, "Who kidnapped Mom, unless it starts with the words flaming or burnt this isn't our Mom."  Kids!

 Now I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.  So many beautiful posts!

 Vee at Thistle Creek Cottage showed off her happy spring flowers.

Becky at Thoughtfully Blended Hearts  showed off her spring flowers.

Liz at Quirky Vistas showed off her twinkle light centerpiece.

Kim at Too Much Time on My Hands gave us 74 burlap projects that are pinworthy.

 Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!   It is wonderful to have you here! 
Sherry

The change to the kitchen is perfect! I love the way the table looks! Your kids are too funny!!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

The change you made is so cute..blue plates on the wall and repeat blue on the table. I love it. I've never written a menu in my life. Now the children are grown and gone and I never hear "What's for dinner, Mom??!" I miss that. I miss it a lot.
Happy Mother's Day to you... I hope your day is blessed with every happiness.
I would join your party but not at all sure what to post. I have some visiting to do as I see some lovely link photo's.
Hugs!

You've just got to love kids! Mine used to always say when we had guests "What's up with all the extra silverware". Like they hadn't ever seen it before. Mercy.
