In case you were wondering...

Remember when I talked about this GORGEOUS FABRIC that I found on Ebay?

 It's a vintage Lee Jofa print on linen.  Great colors, super fun and crazy pattern.

I initally thought I'd be using it to reupholster a cool chair or two.......

But instead I made pillows!  

A local client of mine snapped them up and added them to her collection of other pillows that she's purchased from me.

 Seriously, you gotta love blue and white gingham; a huge Quadrille ikat print and a vintage Lee Jofa all together....

The mix of these pillows is pure.......

Pillow Love!

Creating a vignette on a tray

One of my obsessions  passions, is to constantly switch things around in my house.  

I recently picked up an orange lacquered asian tray at the flea market and created a new centerpiece vignette for my dining table.

 The dining table used to look like this:

Then I switcher-ooed the light fixture ....

And found that the table needed a bigger centerpiece to balance out the new fixture above.

Eventually, I'll find a rug to place under the table to finish off the space -- but one thing at a time, right?

I'm totally digging the vintage candle holders from Etsy that I blogged about last week.

The rest of the items were just stuff that I had from other parts of the house, and I added the orchids from one of my favorite haunts...Trader Joe's!

In case you're wondering, here's what the rest of the room looks like:

And the flip side of the room:

Featuring Sherman's favorite spot.

It's nap time!
