Fall ing

Thursday, September 08, 2011

 

It has been in the 60’s here this week. With a little nip in the air, it finally feels like Fall

is really close. Some of my flowers are still hanging on—but just barely. But, I don’t

 mind because I know that soon the turning leaves will paint my mountainsides.

Until then, let’s enjoy these beauties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t know anything about this installation other than it completely intrigues me.

 

 

I can't wait to kick around in the leaves. And when I do, I would love to win a big fat

 Sundance lottery and sport these winners.

  

 Oh Fall, I can't wait to hang out with you again....

Label blanket

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

I saw this fabulous blanket at the Showhouse that was made entirely out of clothing labels!  




Of course my mind starts spinning...did all the labels belong to the same couple? {I saw
suit labels and dress labels} Were they collected for years...decades? What was the procedure--buy 
a new garment and immediately remove the tag, or, wear it, and then remove the tag when
the garment had been outgrown or outdated? 

I have saved my special t-shirts and sweatshirts since high school. I had always planned to create
a quilt out them. Instead, maybe I will make my kids a quilt made out of all their sports
shirts, camp shirts and school shirts. 

Wouldn't that make a fun graduation gift!     

Have you ever made a blanket out of something really personal or collected? Share it with me!

Update***I got some emails from folks wanting more info on the label blanket. I contacted Monday’s House

 of Design and found out that the blanket was created by local artist, Shari Erickson. It is 5’x7’ and was hand

 stitched with her personal collection of  labels {dating back to the 1970’s}. Shari has a tremendous

 portfolio and many impressive clients. Take a look at her website. Oh, and it is for sale…

$15,000.
