Pix for the Breakfast Room

My breakfast room is not in shape to show you pictures yet, but I did order this fabric for the windows:

It's Covington Wilmington Multi.  I have 5 windows and have made drapes for two of them so far.

I wanted to hang things on the walls that go with the fabric and are happy and kitcheny.  I have this book that I purchased at a library book sale years ago.

And it has pictures like this:

So I cut four of them out of the book and purchased four black frames from Target:

Then I searched through my stash of scrapbooking paper and found this:

This one was not working for me.  So I tried this:

Much better.  This is actually a beautiful butterscotchy, goldenrod color.  Next I tried this:

I'm really liking this one with the script.  So I tried this:

I think this one with the dictionary page is really great too.

I only had two each of the script and dictionary pages so in the end, I opted for the butterscotchy, goldenrod ones because I had four sheets of it.

I put them all together and hung them in the corner, next to a window with my silk geranium and Angus on the cabinet below.

I think they look great with the curtain fabric:

What do you think?
