Back in January, I updated the kitchen curtains from dark valances to a lighter curtain.
(I spy my lens cap.)
I like the new lighter feel.
(It was raining when I took these pictures.)
I didn’t want to add the same curtain treatment to the sink window. I wanted something that wouldn’t block too much light.
I finally saw exactly what I was looking for on one of my favorite blogs Lemonade Makin’ Mama.

Sasha had painted and stenciled a piece of old barn wood with the lyrics – You are my sunshine. I fell in love with it immediately remembering my mother singing that song to us as kids. I wasn’t sure if it would fit in the kitchen window, but I snapped it up anyway. I could always find something to do with a sweet sign.
Well, it fit! Can you see the tiny knothole in the letter S. I love that hole. Little rays of sunlight dance through it.
(It, coincidentally, stopped raining.)
I could wash dishes in front of this window all day. Well, not really, but you know what I mean.
Here is the link to Lemonade Makin’ Mama’s Etsy Shop. She has some really beautiful items for sale. But this sign would be easy enough to make on your own too.
The owl cookie jar was a birthday gift to me, but it is from Anthropologie.
