Seen And Liked On A Monday

I know it's Tuesday already but this is the one post that I try to make sure I do every week...  The latest issue of the Australian online magazine Est was published over the weekend and it is full of gorgeous color and images.  These are some of my favorites.

Fat Quarters Now Available

Having fat quarter packs as an option in our fabric lineup has been on my to do list for the longest time.  So I am thrilled that they are finally available.   Our fabric section has had a complete facelift with new photos across the board, some decreases in pricing for fabric coming to an end, and six packs of fat quarters.  Each pack contains five different fabrics for a total of 1.25 yards.

In The Shop Today

A pile of pillows we just made with ticking (one of my all time favorite fabrics) and various hessian and cotton sacks.   A galloping herd of plastic wild horses in fabulous colors.   A duck hanging out with a three and a WWII Red Cross flag.  A biplane and a truck keeping a beautiful yellow faceted vase company.  A hummingbird by Matt Adrian perched on the mantel.

Chair Fun

It's a chair party!   We are getting ready for another sale on Fab.com next month so I stopped by my upholsterer this morning to take pictures.  Beyond happy with how they all turned out.

London 2012 Olympics

I had some fun today creating some London 2012 spirit in the shop with our Union Jack pillows, some Pan Am pillows we made from old flight bags and a Jonathan Adler Jaguar box!

Lovely bedroom with a juju feather hat on the wall.  Given that I have a similar on above my mantel, it is unsurprising that this picture brings a smile to my heart.   Not to mention the yummy purple and red color combo.  Via The Pale Mauve Post;Geometric watercolor bliss by Luli Sanchez;
Delicious kitchen with views of the French countryside making it even more fab! Via Belgian Pearls.  Oh wouldn't it be nice to be transported to Provence for a few hours.  Wherever you are, I wish you a great week!

Happy Productive Friday

I spent the day rearranging and cleaning things in the shop.  I had a pile of things I found at the flea market on Sunday to put out!  I always love seeing the store everything has been changed up.   The mantel looks particularly great!   Fabulous way to start the weekend.   I wish you all a fun couple of days!

Have a wonderful day tomorrow.   I plan to spend most of the day in my studio.  I have a long list and will be thrilled if I at least check off half of the things on it!
