I love it even more than I thought I would! Check out the print I ordered, and the etsy shop I bought it from here.
my bedroom. Another room that does get that kind of beautiful streaming bright sunshine, however, is the pantry.

My new Fiestaware pitcher is home now, and looking bright and fun on my kitchen counter. the color of the pitcher has sparked a bit of controversy, though, as I was not originally intending to buy it in the "tangerine" color (I was thinking to go with sunflower) but Kohls was out of stock when my mother and her friend Patti tracked this down for me. I actually love it in tangerine, but... It sits right next to my darker orange tea pot (a remnant from the days of my orange kitchen...) and the two don't work very well together in my opinion. I have been playing around with this a bit, where exactly to set this item so that it is not right next to the tea kettle. I am in love with my new pitcher, it is not a question. The question becomes do I love my tea kettle enough to be OK with those two shades of orange sitting next to each other. If the answer is no, this is an easy thing to fix, as we have a second tea kettle, sitting on a shelf in our pantry. Its stainless steel finish actually matches a few stainless items we have in the kitchen already. But upon asking one of my roommates her opinion, I am now even more confused! She pointed out how much cuter the shape of the orange kettle is, and how much easier its enamel exterior is to clean should it get spatters of oil on it (which it does, as it sits on the stove at all times- we make tea far too often to justify putting it away!).
The first way I had the two orange objects:
A slightly better arrangement:
So anyway, I am very happy with the additions to my kitchen, everything is coming right along. I think the real dilemma is what to do now? Nearly every space in my apartment is how I want it to be, at least within my means. Maybe fixating on a tea kettle is just proof that once I don't have a big overhaul project to do, my mind doesn't know what to focus on!
