Day 28 of Things I Love…Tufting

Posted by

There is nothing more glamorous than button tufting.

It creates a certain sex appeal.

But many a quaint abode has been defined by this buttoned up detail.

Tufting has a way of drawing you in.

It makes you want to stay a while…

Whether writing a note,

or taking a nap.

It is handsome and feminine at the same time.

And a buttoned banquette is a favorite of mine.

On this Day 28 Button Tufting it will be. It’s a labor of love and a must-have for me.

And don’t forget to register for another must-have…a great tote from Perennials Fabrics. Be sure to leave a comment here. The drawing will be Monday, March 1 at noon CST.

Day 27 of Things I Love…La Plates

Posted by

Bonjour, mes amis… today I am la la loving La Plates! Oooh la la, what eye candy they are.

These melamine beauties are a must-have for dining alfresco!

So extra cute with a tabletop caddy to boot, I want to take these down to the beach.

Or dine on deck with a view of the sea, I think this knot pattern might be for me.

For cocktails in the country this tray could be great, or for serving some cold ones down by the lake.

If a perfectly Parisian picnic is your sort of soiree, fill their tote and be on your way.

On Day 27 I am happy to say, I love La Plates and must get some right away!

Day 26 of Things I Love…Rubie Green

Posted by

I have already mentioned this month how much I love Lonny Magazine and it’s talented Editor-in-Chief Michelle Adams. But I didn’t tell you how much I love Michelle’s amazing Eco-friendly textile line Rubie Green.

Michelle’s graphic patterns and bold colors are right up my alley.

They can be young and fun,

Relaxing and handsome,

chic and sexy,

Sweet and feminine,

Or perfectly cool and coastal.

On Day 26 I love Rubie Green Fabrics and salute them for being kind to our environment.
