It's gettin' hot in here

Wednesday, July 17, 2013


Fan me, please, cause this beautiful fabric is getting me all hot and bothered!



 Danika's first upholstery project is pretty stunning, don't you think?



The watercolor fan fabric is just beautiful and then when you pair it with the coral and the good. She got her hands on a bolt of this 'mystery fabric' and she's selling it up. Go get yourself some.   


Burlap beauties

Wednesday, July 10, 2013


I was in Jo Ann's Fabrics the other day and I was surprised to see some great printed Burlaps.




And then I saw that Sherry was at Hancock's Fabrics and she also came across some pretties.  




Not sure what's going on in Burlap Land, but I like it! Have you come across any others?


Sunday loving

I spotted the screen printed designs of Swedish artist Lisa Bengtsson on Poppytalk and I went nuts for her newest collection that will debut in May. This playful design showcases 'Swedish summer meets Bohemian chic'. Lisa takes a magnifying glass into an overgrown garden and explores its life -- a life where fish, strawberries, deer and flowers overlap into a charming wonderland. 





The collection, which translated means "Keep the hat, here comes Miss Sun, Barefoot and Dear Mr Olsson" will only be available for a short time through Hemtex, a Scandinavian textile shop, in May. I will arm wrestle you for them if you get in my way (I have successfully defeated both of my teenagers in this competition...just saying)


Not just for your flower girls

Monday, March 04, 2013


After spending our third straight Saturday watching it snow, and the fact that it is now March, I am getting antsy for all of the spring flowers that are surely close to revealing themselves to us. I can't wait to get my hands dirty in my flowerpots and unpack the cute sundresses and sandals. And speaking of cute dresses... 






I am so smitten with these dresses I spotted on etsy created using a collection of vintage textiles. Soho Mode is the sweet company created by Louise Hedley. Born and raised in England, Louise developed a love for old world glamor in her teens. Due to a very modest childhood, she was taken with vintage fabrics and the way a dress could transform her self confidence. In 1998, she moved to NYC, met and fell in love with her husband, and with his encouragement, she began sewing. Soon, she was selling her clothing created from her treasure trove of fabrics at the Chelsea Flea.

With her collected vintage fabrics, Louise and her team offer a huge selection in their etsy store or they can create one-of-a-kind dresses, cinched belts, ties, and skirts. In 2004, Barney's began to sell her tea dress collection and since then, many brides have embraced using her dresses in their weddings. I just love the eclectic charm of the combination of the vintage dress patterns with the cotton floral.


























Like Louise, I too have quite a collection of vintage fabrics, tablecloths, pillowcases and tea towels that I have sewn into little dresses for Maris. As a matter of fact, I am quite certain that some of the fabrics pictured were also hanging in my childhood closet {or as sheets on my bed!}. Browsing Soho Made's collection of online fabrics, I am flooded with sweet childhood memories of the dresses my mom and grandmother used to sew for me as a little girl, many of which I still have packed away.
