May Kitchen Window

Welcome May!

I made a new ruffle for my window for the summer months. It is a ticking runner from Home Goods. A few rows of stitching along the side and it becomes a valance....simple! I like to do this because the sides and the hem are already finished. 

One of my favorite dolls is this sweet little girl by Angela Hillstrom...Of Cloth and Hand. She has the dearest face and is the perfect size for my window.

Red and gold stone fruit apples in an early black compote. 

I picked the beautiful red rose from my yard yesterday. My Don Juan rosebush has given us these beauties for years and years. The aroma is marvelous!

A little red, a sweet dolly and a beautiful rose are sharing space in my window this month.

Thank you to those who sent well wishes on my last post. It's always a good day when friends stop by!

Have a great weekend!

Enjoy the day,


  1. Hi Robyn,

Your valance is perfect and I just love the ticking with everything!! Then....I saw IT!!! That PEG RACK!!!! Oh my goodness!! I have been trying to find one of those to use for baskets over a window!!!!!!! Do you mind my asking where I might find one??
    It looks PERFECT and is exactly what I have been imagining!! I don't ever remember seeing it in your other window displays, so I really loved that you shared it!!
