cookies and milk


Never will I ever be too old for cookies and milk.
Did you know that the Oreo cookie has been around since 1929.

Imagine sitting pretty in this kitchen eating an oreo.
I spy a glass of milk on the table. It looks like a familiar site in my house.
My boys drink lots of milk and are always on the prowl for a cookie.

I am loving kitchens that have a contrast of dark and light.
Love the black painted window and the array of potted herbs on the sill.
Stainless steel looks right too.
Note the dark bottoms and the light upper cabinetry.
Do you think the ubiquitous oreo cookie might have been the inspiration for this kitchen?
What is it about black and white just looking timeless and right?
I am not the only one floored by black and white. Look what Jenny has today.
Who knew that an oreo cookie would inspire so much!

Love the black and white look, just saw Jenny's post and the mix of b/w floors is so great. My boys get the double stuffed oreo's for treats.

I can't imagine a nicer place to be "sitting pretty" and having cookies and milk. Black and white are timeless. I love a black and white tile floor and can't believe I missed the opportunity to have one when I was redoing my kitchen.

I do love black and white. I love cookies too! My kitchen is black and white and I don't think I'll ever get tired of it.

You are so right, the black and white color combo is so timeless and easy to change with different color accents. I recently changed my kitchen and got a great deal on wholesale flooring, I couldn't be happier with my new kitchen. Thanks for sharing ;) - now I want an oreo cookie!
