My Inspiration

This beautiful fabric is the inspiration for the whole color palette used in the house. I bought a small piece from e-bay and fell in love with it.

The only problem is that I can't find any more of it. The selveges were cut off when I got it so I can't even search for the pattern on the internet.

I have spend endless hours scouring every site that I can to see if I can find it. The only other place I have ever seen it was a long time ago on a designer show on HGTV. If you know the name of this fabric or where I can find more, PLEASE let me know.

I would like to do cushions for my bar stools and a valence for my dining room window. I have spent over $100.00 on fabric for this project and am disappointed every time with the way that it looks. Nothing seems to look right. I just have to find this fabric if I can

I hope you can find this fabric. Unfortunately I don't recognize it or remember if I had seen it before. It is a very pretty fabric. Good luck with your project.

I'll be on the look out for you because I think it is gorgous too. If I find it I'll let you know and please can you do the same for me. I love pink but love it better when it also has the blue.
many thanks

It is a lovely pattern. I can definitely see how you are incorporating those colors into your home. And I think you're doing a great job of it!

I hope you can find more of it. Good luck with your search!

Thanks for stopping by to see my new/old French armoire! I love the blue floral fabric, too. Have you shopped online at Shabby Fabrics? How the Fat Quarter Shop? Both websites have numerous fabric designs, so you may find yours. Let me know if you do!

What a terrible thing to run out of something you love so much! Is it a Waverly pattern? To me it kind of looks like an older Waverly. So pretty though! I love the colors and the soft florals.

Sorry to hear that your brown transferware piece arrived broken. I cannot tell you how many times I have received something from an eBay seller who did not package an item right and it arrived broken. Just happened a few weeks back with a fabulous yellowware bowl. I was mortified, but thankfully I had insured it.

If I see your fabric, I will let you know.

Have a great evening,

Sandy, I tagged you on my's just a fun little thing. You share 7 facts about yourself.......then you tag a few people. If you would like to play, that is cool, if you don't, then please don't feel pressured. You can go to my blog and see what I posted. Hopey you are having a good day.

That fabric is beautiful!! Thanks for coming to visit me- I never even considered they could be jello molds! They are really tiny, about an inch and a half.. hmm. I'm going to do some searching around and figure out what those little guys are. I wish I could say I wasn't realy hurt in my auto accident but I might have some big time problems- cross your fingers for me! Thanks for your concern and for stopping by- come back soon!
