Out My Kitchen Window

My friend Penny posted a picture of the view out her kitchen window. So I thought I'd do the same.

We recently put up some new curtains that I think go well with the farmhouse theme I am trying to achieve. They also do a good job blocking some of the heat that comes in through these windows in the afternoon.



On one window is a stained glass Cardinal attached with a suction cup. I love plants and so the deep window sills above the sink contains a few African Violets, Aloe Plants and a small Pony Tail Palm.

Right outside the window is a hanging basket filled with yellow, red and white blooms and green vines trailing over the edge, almost reaching the ground. I can also see several birdhouses, trees and a field.



There is a tutorial for a quilted kitchen window quilt HERE. A window quilt is a cute idea for a place that doesn't have a window. The quilt has a view on it, even if there is no view out a window. I think if I didn't have a window over my kitchen sink, this would be the next best thing!

Very pretty Debbie! I love your farmhouse. I had a framed picture of a meadow, with cows, a log cabin, etc over one of my windowless sinks. It was a 'fair' substitute. LOL Love your new curtains!
