New designs...



I was fortunate enough to have the day off today, and feeling creative, I started work on some new designs. You can see I had a specific color palette in mind, though I didn’t realize it until after I looked at all the designs together. I was in a playful state of mind and these designs reflect that. I can’t wait to see how they print.
I also have some pretty cool news to share ~ more on that later.

Butterflies, lavender & summer...



With the month of July bringing day after day of sweltering heat (I don’t think we’ve had a day under 90 degrees and quite a few have been 100 or just below), I find myself searching for things that look  and feel cool. I find certain colors to be cooling and soothing, and lavender is one of them.
I designed all of these patterns a few years ago, but this collection is still my favorite, as collections go, anyway. (Of course, that could be because it’s the one true collection I’ve designed.) The main pattern ~ Butterfly Garden ~ always makes me think of warmer weather, but in a relaxing way. I have actually named this collection Spring, but I think it’s a wonderful collection for spring and summer ~ pretty, with lots of potential combinations, and colors that are cooling to the eye.

Wishing all of you a lovely day...

Summer porch style...


My sun porch is one of those spaces that always seems to get reworked. Do you have rooms like that, where you just keep moving things about? In my case, the reason for so much change has to do with changing furniture ~ the porch seems to get a lot of leftovers. In anticipation of eventually moving my current kitchen table out here, I decided to get rid of my old coffee table. That meant a rework. Here’s what my porch looks like now:



I feel like I may still need another chair, probably where this stack of pillows is in front of the fireplace. But for now, it’s fine.
Below you can see my fab pink flamingo metal sculpture, a gift from one of my dear friends. We’ve had a thing about pink flamingos for years. They are suddenly becoming more popular, which I’m not sure I like. I’ve never been overly in love with trends. Of course, I only found that fab pink flamingo pillow for my favorite chair a couple of weeks ago ~ the upside to the sudden popularity of pink flamingos.

So that’s my current porch style. Wishing all of you an enjoyable week...
