My Obsession: Black & White

This was the living room shelf and curtains a few days ago.....

Here are the curtains and shelf after I got back from Target yesterday....black melamine plate- two bucks- worth every penny!!!! I think my inspiration almost always comes in the form of a Target plate!
Then I found some black placemats with the white flowers- $3.oo- and SO CUTE!!!! It just adds that black and white mod-ness to the curtains.


See, another Target plate...

I love how the black and white goes with all the other colors in your home. I wear lots of black and white, though I've added more color over the years. :)

If I send you pics of places in my house that need help...would you help me? I know what I want to do but sometimes need that little push over the cliff! You busy little bee you!

I'm not a lover of black, but the way you use it appeals to me and it reminds me of the classical elements I so love! Thank you!

What a fun blog, Sara! I love the pictures of your house on the side of your blog, especially your dining room. I feel all cheerful now. :) Thanks!

Hello! I found you via Heidi's blog. Anyhow, I'm really into black and white right now, too. Did you see the oilcloth (black and white, of course) placemats at target? I saw the flowery ones that you are using to dress up your curtain....thinking about going back for some of those in the future. I love your frame/plate/switchplate combo.
Very inspiring.

I love black and white! Your paintings are great! Did you paint directly onto the bathroom mirror? It looks fantastic!
