it’s cold. and snowy. and icy. and all i want to do is stay comfy-cozy in my flannel sheets…
this is my dream day-in…
clockwise from top left…
i was a little late getting on the Mamma Mia train, but i finally saw it last night and all i can say, is that, if i had the money, i’d be on the first flight to greece! UNBELIEVABLE scenery… but, my favorite part, of course, was the set design.
the textiles, paint colors, antiques left me drooling for more…
Josef Frank textiles (remember this anthropologie
chair!?) hanging on the clotheslines….
hand embroidered bed linens
(as seen in the movie still at the top of this post)
love the layers, piles, prints of mix-matched quilts
(not to mention the aegean blue walls!)
how amazing would it be to have a relaxed, inviting, chic guestroom done in this style…
this is just such a great idea for a baby shower (IF you have crafty friends!)…
all of the guests were sent plain, white onesies with their invitations, asking the guests to please personalize it anyway they choose for the mother-to-be.
i took on the project for a friend, so never got to see the final results, but i can only imagine how adorable and personal all were.
the super-cute invite and the included onesie, awaiting it’s personal touch..
we chose an elephant (for good luck!) and a pretty floral
finished off with a pink zig-zag stitch…perfectly sweet.
yellow is one of my all-time favorite colors.
i can’t help but feel happy with yellow…ummmmm, sun.
these bursts are cheering me up through these days of rain and grey…
i would love to add these trees to my holiday decorating collection…
but, would i be able to put them away at the end of the season?
checking in on my google reader this morning, exploring new blogs and i come acrosscamp comforts
– a fantastic little fashion news and inspiration site, when i see this:
i literally almost pee myself with excitement, thinking that some stylist has seen outside of the box and used my cape in a shoot for women!
the cape (and full ensemble
) is credited to APC
, maybe i am nutso
, but all I can say is it looks awfully similar to this
now, not to get confused with my last post… i am all for cheering on the little guy, the stay-at-home mom, the crafter, who is inspired by a piece of (high) fashion and wants to set out on their own, on their little SINGER with pin-pricked fingers and attempt to re-create.
go for it.
i wish i had the time.
but, when a huge fashion company takes more than inspiration (we are talking down to the buttons here, kids) from the little guy, i get pissed.
