The Storque

One of my spreads is featured in etsy's blog today, but what really got me excited is the featured "Get the Look" home of Ingrid from Wool and Wood Stool. I love her bright and casual look especially the crocheted pieces that she has made. Here are a few of her handcrafted items:

I love this afghan - I have some small squares and I believe this will be my next crochet project.
You can Read the article here and visit her Flickr pics. Thanks for stopping by and hope you guys have a great week!!

Tropical Deco Delight

My love affair with vintage barkcloth is still flaming - ok, I cheated a little with some vintage grainsacks, but my first love is still my first love, as far as vintage textiles go! It is so rare and the styles and colors are like none seen today. I love the fauna fans on this pillow - reminds me of something growing up from the bottom of the sea and waving in the current - almost 3D looking! The colors are fabulous. This has been in my "to finish" basket for 2 years waiting on inspiration of what to put on the back. Well, I backed it with new black and cream toile - I love it! And put fabulous black tassel fringe on both ends. Stuffed her with a feather/down insert and she is ready to go. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!

Christmas Stockings

I decorated my staircase yesterday with garland, poinsiettas and clusters of red, lime green, and gold balls. It really got me in the mood for Christmas stockings. I made three today and I wanted to share them with you. My favorite, by far, is the white one. Simple, yet elegant, and I LOVE the trapunto style.
