The new windows

Didn't we just do this?  Yep.  But the replacement sashes have been shipped and they will be replaced next week.  Decision time for the paint.  The longer I wait, the lighter I go.  Can't believe it.  I moved up several shades on walls and trim.  Krissy sending me this photo did not help because .... well .... it's cabinets and good golly I just may do it.  This is the softest white I have seen and of course the same paint would not look like this in my dark north facing kitchen. 
I even saw that Pat Gaddy (http://www.picturetrail.com/oldebittersweetfarm) redid a bedroom and it is Valspar's Clean White and Cloud.  Seems the light movement is upon us.  But the colonial colors are still much loved making the decision difficult.
 
  Another change is from the paneled walls and vertical board wainscot to painted shiplap.  Yep.  Joanna would be proud.  Horizontal is easier to install and right now, I am all for whatever gets it done.  Sam can't come for a while since he ran into problems with the large restaurant he is remodeling.  We can handle some things until he gets here.  Besides, I am no where near formal so beautifully paneled walls and mouldings would not work as well, especially in small rooms. 
 
As for stitching, I hate it.  Some days I do not want to pick up that needle.  I still can't figure this out but should not be surprised.  Just because moods have settled somewhat, does not mean my attitudes have.  I saw the little berry from Pineberry Lane in the Petite Stitches freebie and will do that this evening instead of the sampler.  I tried to find it on the website but things have changed.  When I went to PatternMart which has it, my anti-virus blocked the site with a warning. 
 
Heat is gone and beautiful days ahead. 
Hope all is well with everyone.
 
Thanks for visiting.

Oh Marly....go for the light colors!!! My cupboards have been white for twenty years and I love them!! It's a color you never get tired of! We're going to remodel our kitchen, hopefully , next year...and it's going to be white! Sometimes, I hate stitching too...but then I just move on to something else. Have a wonderful day and enjoy this beautiful weather!!

That is exactly the color of our kitchen cabinets...and the tombstone moulding shape,too! However, we put dark Italian bronze knobs rather than light. We have been very pleased, as our kitchen, like our house, is quite small, and the light color opens it up!

All I know is that the older I get, the more I need a lighter house. When we go to my in-laws with its dark paneling and cupboards, it is truly depressing! I LOVE my white cabinets and have never tired of them after 22 year :) Good luck, Marly--there are way too many choices out there, aren't there?

I LOVE the kitchen....light colors are so warm and welcoming - makes me feel happy. So wish I could redo our place too. Can't wait to see your choices. You have a great eye for color. Good Luck

I think I found the freebie on Pinterest.

That kitchen is to die for, so perfect. On my computer the color is a soft , very soft creamy color. Like a hint of french vanilla ice cream. Sometimes if i have not stitched for a few days (frozen shoulder and 90+ degree heat) , it has been hard to pick up a needle. I am determined to finish O Tannenbaum even if it hurts me.

Marly: I love this kitchen, we are redoing cabinets next year after we get all the improvements done this year so many things to get done before the snow flies.

That is a beautiful kitchen - one to dream about. I'd suggest going with the lighter shades (but then my cabinets are off-white).
