"Delicious Color & Cookies"........

Friday, January 16, 2009

The most "appetizingly" pretty kitchen & cupboard!....
Happy Friday Dear Friends, Well it has been a week of "cleaning out" & "getting rid of"!....& Oh! it feels so good!.....I have been going through stored boxes, drawers & every conceivable "cubbyhole"... ridding our home of no-longer-needed stuff"!......Along with all that I have been going through all my magazines, some of which just need to be discarded, so I'm sure, like many of you, I am leafing through each, tearing out ideas & photos & projects I must save.....As I was perusing,... I happened to notice a pattern..I kept ripping out photos of rooms all having this marvelous "dijon-mustard" color!! Well, .....I guess I love it!!??......I know I have made a point of letting you all know how ready I am for all white surroundings, with little color...but somewhere inside I must have a deep-seeded love affair going with this color!? Who knew?.....but I do so appreciate it's delicious hue!.....So after thumbing through magazine after magazine....I found myself in the kitchen whipping up a batch of "Moms's Brown Sugar Bars"..... coincidentally they have a very similar shade to this "new" beloved color of mine!?......"Color & Cookies"....a delicious combination you too may wish to try!.......

Such a cozy, little room......

And this bathroom would feel "warm" even during the coldest winter!

Amazing cabinetry.....beautiful color.....

And such a "yummy" ceiling".......what a charming background for this barrel shade.....
Note: Thought you may enjoy trying a new cookie recipe....This one comes from my dear friend Laura, who always has the best cookie recipes!!!
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg

This sounds yummy! I think I have athe ingredients to make this cookie...since the weather is going to be cold to get out I am gonna try this out over the weekend!

Oh I love that color also...I almost decided on this when I was picking out the colors for my kitchen but I went with the terra cotta color instead. Both are pretty and love all the pics you shared of this hue. an idea when your going to start the other swap..Kitchen one? I wanted to blog about my kitchen so my swap partner can see it and get ideas..I like the fact of seeing someones kitchen and having a feel of what to just curious...don't want to post it to soon before you announce the swap deadline and partners.

have a wonderful weekend!

I, too, love this color! In fact, I love it so much that I just painted our living room that color. It warmed up the space so much and is leaps and bounds better than the 1980s floral wallpaper that was in the room when we bought the house!

I just started reading your blog about a month ago. Can't remember who linked me over to it. But, I so enjoy it!

My kitchen is mustard yellow. I have always loved it (8 years). It is on the west side of my house so in the summer it seems warmer. I think it's mental.

This color would work well with white...maybe just the background of a cubby or shelf...just to see if you REALLY love it??

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
