Oh my, I am having quite a time trying to find fabric I like for a little boy! I just can't bring myself to do skulls or sports balls or trucks yet. It is so easy with girls....so many choices. I spent two hours at the fabric store today looking for fabrics to use for some pods I plan to make for this little guy and his cousin. I found some OK fabric but nothing I am giddy about. If only I had an extra $150 to spend on fabric from Spoonflower ( I may break down and have to buy a few yards because seriously people there is some awesome stuff over there)! At least I can share some of my favorite artists with you (p.s. Chris did send me the cutest robot fabric that I am giddy about and just trying to decide what to use it for...I'll keep you posted):
Love the sun fabric from Amy King and her London fabric is just awesome.
Heather Dutton's work is adorable.
Susanne Firmenich's "Play with Me" print is on my wish list as well as some of the other folk art fabric...beyond adorable.
I am swooning over everything trois miettes has to offer...seriously so great.
Katty Neill has some great stuff too. I really like the tree circle fabric.
Love the color Ann Tuck uses in her designs...so bright and rich.
Cindy Lindgren's patterns are simple and just lovely too. I'm loving the pea pod pattern and the thistle.
And we end with Tara Put, whose work can be summed up in three words... AWE MAZE INC. Seriously.
Hope you are enjoying your Friday and that your weekend is even better! XXOO Hannah
So, we still haven't even come close to selling our home which isn't surprising with the holidays and snow everywhere here but keeping this house organized and clean and decorating a future home has been on my mind a lot lately. I've found some jewels in the blogosphere and thought I'd share them with you! Here are some of my new favorites:
I'm sure most of you have heard of The Nesting Place. I love her style and her humor...great blog!
The House of Turquoise is a new favorite. I think you'll like it too! Very inspiring.
Oh man, Hooked on Houses definitely has me hooked! So many inspiring ideas here and such a clean and beautiful blog...love it!
Centsational Girl is one I've been following for a while...great ideas and nice layout.
Knock Off Decor is a new one and pretty cool. It even has categories for each store the decor is knocked off from...places like pottery barn, Restoration Hardware...you know all of your favorites that are usually out of my price range!
Life in Grace is a blog about Edie's life with her family and her beautiful southern home...unfortunately her home burned to the ground just a few weeks ago so now she is letting us watch how her and her family are picking up the pieces and rebuilding. She is really a good writer and so inspiring.
The Inspired Room is just good...the end.
I'm an Organizing Junkie has been good to keep things looking clean and somewhat organized over here...which isn't an easy task with three toddlers I might add...but she has some great advice and tips.
Miss Mustard Seed is a new find that I LOVE. She knows what's up!
One Nutty Girl is another new find that has been fun and inspiring.
320 Sycamore is a great down-to-earth-real-life-great-advice blog...seriously love this one.
Are you getting tired yet? I'm realizing that I may or may not have a small but powerful obsession right now...just a few more to go:
Meadowbrook Farm has a little bit of everything. Decorating, farm life, cooking, photography...just BEAUTY everywhere!
Show and Tell is just that...showing projects and before and after's...just fun and inspiring.
Stories from A 2 Z is another new and awesome find...
OK, that's all for now...there are more but I'll spare you...do you have any you'd like to share? Come on...feed my need! :)
Hope you all have a great weekend! XXOO
