Fabric, Check. Paint, Check. Time. What time?!

First of all, a big thanks to the lovely folks who weighed in on my kitchen fabric dilemma a few posts ago.  Your votes and another trip to my favorite fabric store confirmed my choice.

I bought a couple yards of Waverly's Small Talk Blackbird this weekend.  The good news is that I love it even more than I did the first time I laid eyes on it.  And once I had enough yardage in my hot little hand to hold it up in the window of our new kitchen to get a feel for what it would look like curtain wise, I loved it even more still!

Mr. Skooks and I evaluated what felt like millions of paint chips (but was probably more like 20) and settled on our kitchen paint colors.  Those cans are sitting on our new kitchen counter waiting for us to come back wielding our brushes.  Seriously, those beige walls won't know what hit 'em!

Would you love to eat in a kitchen sporting paints like "Spiced Applesauce" and "Happy Times" on the walls?  You better believe you would!

Confession time.  My mind *may* have been made up just a bit before the poll closed.  Subconsciously or not, I procured these little lovelies with the intent to design a yellow, black, and white kitchen.  And that kinda knocks out I dunno, ALL the other fabrics I picked.  Just about.


P.S.  Finding these little guys eased the pain of losing out on my chance to get those red canisters I put on my b-day wish-list.  It's all good though.  I have some plans to incorporate red into the new sewing room so stay tuned for that.  ;)

I know right?! They are kinda small and they're plastic, but I love them anyway. :)
