{polka dots, stripes and florals}


Fabric is a huge source of inspiration for me. Partly because it satifies my constant craving for color. Partly because it means I get to be in the company of polka dots, gingham, ric rac, stripes and florals, all things I am crazy about.





I got to thinking how those very things relate could relate to Home Decor? Could I possibly use my favortie sewing notions to inspire the details and accents in my home? Well, here is a little of what I found. And I am really and truly inspired.



This collage of pretty things is from the English/Vintage/Cottage queen, Cath Kidston :

I love Cath Kidson!! She is bookmarked in my favorites under my inspiration/craft section. Great minds must think alike;) Now if I could just afford some of the stuff that she sells... And I simply adore that picture of the green, blue, and white kitchen. Oh to be home and able to finish my decorating... Hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend!

Hi, Chelle. Just found your blog tonight while doing a Google search for polka dots. What a beautiful site you have, and a wonderful Christian testimony as well.
