  7. I adore your blog. So much inspiration to be found. I can't wait to see the new thing you come up with :)

    PS" I love muted stripes too. I have a tan and cream ticking stripe decorator weight fabric that I want to make roman shades out of. I just have to figure out how.

  8. Hi Lu (my sister's kitties name is Lu, too!)
    I recently purchased the Simply Shabby Chic bedding in that color palette & I'm loving it for my 5 year old boy's room! That chippy chair is a sweet find! It would've had me, too! ;) Sounds like we're working on similar palettes for little guys rooms, so I'll be checking back to see whay you're up to! So far I have old, beat up vintage toy blocks.. love how faded they are. Excited to hear about your Shabby Chic Couture news! Have a wonderful weekend!
    xoxo, L
