Window Shopping Wednesday – Honey be Good

Holy moley my loves!  I ran across this shop the other day and OMG!!!  Talk about some cuuuuute fabrics!  Eek!  Plus, they’re good for you and the environment.  Check it out…

All of the cotton fabric in our shop is certified organic by either The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) or the Organic Exchange. Look for the ‘Growth and Production’ tab on the fabric detail page for information on the certifying entity.

We also carry hemp blends. Hemp is naturally pest-resistant, uses less water than cotton and is generally considered a sustainable crop not needing certification. Our solid color hemp fabric is a hemp/lyocel blend. The hand screen-printed textiles are on a hemp/GOTS organic cotton base cloth.

This Modern Home Fat Quarter Bundle … oh… what can I say about it?  Uhh, I’m in love with the llamas?  So stinking adorable.  This would make a to die for quilt.

I {heart} these Banksia Trees!  Can’t you just imagine a pillow made with this fabric?

This print is called Chick Chick by Nancy Mims and if you look reeeaaaal close you’ll notice that the redish color is actually hens standing on top of eggs.  Cheeky!  For some reason I’d really like to put this fabric on something in our screened patio.

This print is called Harmony Art Sateen – 10 Flowers and I can totally see this in a little girls room somewhere… perhaps as a line of fabric on the bottom of a solid white quilt?  So sweet.

My MIL is going through a bit of a bird phase and I’m sure she’d love this Little Blue Birds print by Havana.  This would be really cute as a seat cover on a screened in patio chair.

When I saw this fabric I thought “how mod!” which is funny considering it’s called MicroMod – Tick Tock White.  To add a bit of glitz, I would sew clear sequins onto the small white dots in the center.

I think this New Leaf – Festoon fabric would make an adorable skirt for the spring, especially if topped with a cardigan set.

Have a little one in your life?  This Nursery Flannel – Ele-fête! might just be the perfect thing!

This Raaga – Roost print is just lovely.  I love the colors and you know I love me some peacocks.

Does this make anyone else want to hoard fabric or is it just me?

Happy shopping!

Window Shopping Wednesday – Z Gallerie (furniture)

So my office is in a multi-use space that has our local city hall, lots of restaurants and shops, office space (obviously) and even some really expensive condos.  It’s a nifty little area and I’m very happy to work here.  One of the shops nearby is Z Gallerie and honestly, it’s just torture to drive/walk by every day and not go in and spend my entire paycheck (and my Husbands).  I walked by today and nearly had to physically restrain myself.  I loooove their stuff.  So, in order to save my checkbook I figured we’d go perusing today.

This weeks featured shop:  Z Gallerie (the furniture section)

I love the classic lines of this Pauline Sofa and it’s available in grey (my preferred sofa color). It even has nailhead trim.  Swoon.

This Oscar Sofa is outstanding as well.  Sadly, it’s only available in white which would never work in our house.  I just adore those rolled arms, the tufted seat (and more nailhead trim!).

I realize chevron is all the rage right now and that it may be getting old to some of you and that more than likely it will eventually go out of style.  Until then though, I’m loving this Storage Bench in Zig Zag.

I like the sleek and somewhat feminine lines of this Cosmopolitan End Table.  Also, since it’s glass, it doesn’t take up much visual space so you could use it just about anywhere.

I love mirrored furniture.  It adds great light and texture to a room.  I wouldn’t use it for something that you use multiple times a day though or you’d be super frustrated with the fingerprints.  Using this Borghese Mirrored Side Chest as an end table would be a great way to incorporate a piece like this.

I’m of the opinion that if you have a formal dining room, it should be exactly that… formal.  I have so much fun dressing up our dining room table for special occasions.  These Lola Side Chairs add just the right amount of glam without being overpowering.

I think these Hyacinth Chairs would add an amazing amount of texture to a room.  I’d use these in the breakfast area.  I would definitely add some plush cushions to pad the bottoms.

I have been ooo-ing and ahh-ing over this Chambers Chaise for quite a while now.  I want so badly to put this in our master bedroom.  It’d also be amazing in a sunroom if you have one.

These Bailey Chairs would make great little occasional chairs.  Since they don’t have arms, they appear to be smaller visually than they actually are which means they’d fit well into small rooms.  There are several fabric patterns to choose from including Linx (shown), Zig Zag (in a mustardy yellow), Zig Zag (in black), and Zebra (in a light grey).

Doesn’t this Colonial Accent Chair just scream ‘come sit on me with a book and a glass of lemonade!’  Yes please!

Confession.  I’ve been eyeballing these Cuddler Chairs  for about five years now.  Even the Husband knows that I absolutely *HAVE TO HAVE ONE*!!!!  This would be my all-time favorite reading spot in the house.

I L-O-V-E this Victoria Sleigh Bed.  It needs to come home with me right now!  Husband says it’s “too girly” but fortunately for me we agreed a loooong time ago that he gets to decorate/organize the garage and his office any way he wants but that the rest of the house is MINE!  Come to mama!

I’m fairly certain I just virtually spent six months’ worth of my salary but wouldn’t my house be just fabulous?

Do you ever go out shopping for something and just happen to stumble over something PERFECT that you’ve been looking for FOREVER?  Yeah, that totally happened to the Hubs and I this weekend.  You see, we had a $75 off coupon to Lowe’s and we need tons of supplies for our renovation project so we headed that direction to pick up a few things.  We were wandering through the plants & patio section looking for a few plants and some bags of mulch when we stumbled across this:

He may not look like much but OMG he’s perfect!  I love rockers/swings but this guy is also crazy comfortable even if you prop your feet up on a footstool/ottoman.  The padding is super think and soooo comfy.  I seriously just wanted to take a nap in him.  We’ve been looking for super comfy outdoor chairs for years and years and this is the first one we’ve found that we’ve both fallen head over heels about.  The only problem?  He’s $248.  And we need 2.  And $500 just isn’t in our budget right now.  So, we left our patio chair soul mate at Lowes.  *tear, sniff, sniff*
