I was initially drawn to the intense color and bold pattern on this piece. But I really fell in love with all the hand done detailing like the rainbow stitched spine and the knotted hem.  In its former life I guessing it was a blanket, but it wouldn’t be too hard to whip this bad boy into a shower curtain! or maybe even and oversized upholstered ottoman? I really wish i knew more about when and how this really unique piece was created, so share any insights if you’ve got ’em!

I’ve never been to an in-store class, but this one is right up my alley & right here at our Nashville West Elm so I though I’d share it.

wall wrap

My favorite holiday wrap for the past few years has been lovely neutral craft paper. But I couldn’t resist this giant roll of super shiny silver and white wallpaper at my favorite local thrift for only $.99! I don’t have the guts to hang it in the house yet, so under the christmas tree it will go.

Plaids are perfect cold weather fabrics and as the temperatures drop here in TN I’m excited to put these cozy finds to work. I got both of these great jewel toned plaids at a garage sale, so unfortunately I only  have about 1/2 yard of each.  What do we think about using these lumberjack prints for small-scale holiday projects like fabric garland or rag ornaments?
