Kitchen kitsch!

I have new kitchen valance thanks to my talented Mom.   

 I just love the cherry print on the fabric.

It's very Mary Engelbreit...don't you think?

 There is a tiny bit of wall space above the valance.

Just perfect for a few vintage pieces of kitchen chalkware.

A bit of 50's  kitsch!

Cute valance! Who was the famous designer that said every room needs a touch of black and a touch of red?
I love the tiny fruit chalkware in your little shadow box that mimics the big fruit chalkware on your wall.

I love cherries - so A+ in my gradebook! Cherries are my kindergarten class theme so I get lots of cutie-cherry things from my kinderkids. I like the red slip underneath!

Your window valence looks so adorable! The cherry print design was truly perfect for your kitchen. It goes well with those fruit chalkware on the space above. Also, the length was precise. It wasn’t too short, but then again it wasn’t too long. You should ask your mom for more supply of lovely window treatments. Well, as long as they're free! Hehe.
