My dear friend, Lydia, stopped by to visit me the other day. When she came in she said, "Out of all the decorating styles of your house, this one is my favorite. It's warm, cozy and welcoming." That made me smile really big as it truly is my favorite style too. Those of you that have followed me over the years, know my entire interior has changed five times! (yes...I'm nuts...hee,hee,hee)
Mary with Quilt Hollow, quilt some bunny designs for me. I'm sooooooo totally loving shades of olive green!
My bookcase looks pretty good. I bought a new frame for my favorite photo of Harrington and Hannah.
I found this cache pot in a faaaaaaabulous antique store in Charlotte, NC. My friend, Beth, and I were in there for almost 3 hours! The place is huge I tell ya! I had a big smile on my face when I found this.
So now that my home matches my design style, it's waaaaaaaaaaay easier for me to design new patterns. On my design to do list will be something in wool to go under the lamp on the sofa table.
But first, I'm going to hop over here. See that blank space on either side of the mirror in my Foyer? Well, on my design to do list, I'm going to have 4 stitcheries. Two for each side. One of them will be ready soon and in my SHOP.
Also on my design to do list is to make a table runner for my dining room table and to make another Folk-Art Fusion piece so "Peter and Peter the Pumpkin Eaters" can take a break until the fall.
I found this picture at one of my most favorite shops in Fayetteville, NC. I just had to have it! I mean how perfect for a house full of bunnies!
I'm really looking forward to sharing all my new designs and my Folk-Art Fusion book with you. Sometimes it just takes a little visual adjusting (redecorating) to make things come together.
Now then. I think I could use a quick nap like Ortega here. Isn't he cute? He is an original piece of Mexican folk art that I found in an antique store in Savannah, Georgia. His belly is signed by the artist, Joe Ortega. I decided Ortega was a great name for him.
