Blogger's Home Tour & What Is Going On At My House!




It’s Monday, and this is what is going on around my home today!


The fabric came in for my summer pillows. Here it is on my kitchen table all rolled out…..

Summer pillows1 003 (600x800)

It is even better than I was expecting! The scale is larger and the variation in the shades of blue is perfect for my family room. I am one happy girl!!

Now for the placement of this large print!??? The only way to tell is to wrap the fabric around the pillow form. A little messy looking but it gives me a good idea to which placement will be best……..

I already have a favorite! Next step is to take it to my upholsterer. I have a little addition I am adding to the pillow, but I have to save that for a little surprise in the reveal.

The other thing that is going is the sailboat blue print is being framed. I am suppose to pick it up this week. It is similar to the blueprint pictured below……….

Kathysue is very excited!

HI Kaathy! Oh, I love that fabric! So fresh and lively! I'm so excited about the home tours and have already visited the homes on tour today.
Be a sweetie,

Definitely A! The fabric is beautiful.

Stacy Curran said...

Congrats on being part of such a great series!! And I love your new pillow fabric. Thanks for stopping by today. I haven't had time this summer to do as much blog reading, or even work, as I'd like with the kiddos here all day, but I'm really loving my time with them and trying to remember that my blog friends will be here in September :) Hope you are loving your summer!

Hi Kathysue! I like both pillow sides--maybe A is more my fav? Terrible for a designer not to have an opinion on this one. LOL!
The good news is you can't go wrong!

The enchanted home said...

Love your summer pillows...so fresh and crisp and pretty! I like both sides but am slightly leaning towards A. but you cannot go wrong with either, I just love it!

Melinda said...

Love that fabric, it will look gorgeous made into pillows. Great Choice.

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

I have always loved that fabric...I have been thinking of a place to use it in my home...

Leslie said...

Gorgeous fabric for your pillows, perfect choice! Looking forward to the home tours!

Delores Arabian said...

Your new fabric is perfect for your family room KS! And I can't wait to see the framed print. I suspect it's going to have that punch of blue you love so well! Can't wait to see your tour tomorrow! ~D

Becca said...

Gorgeous fabric, Kathysue! And, I can't wait to see the framed print (you know I love anything nautical)! Thanks again for your kind comment about my summer home tour!

Amy of While Wearing Heels said...

A! I vote for A. And, I love that nautical print.

SHERRY HART said...

That nautical print is fabulous!!! It is going to be perfect in that room.....

John said...

My vote is for B, I like the way the vine winds around on the left hand side. The term that comes to mind is asymmetrical and thanks to "spell check" I was able to write it!

that print for the pillow is so pretty - i think the second option is my fave. i'm part of a monthly link up of bloggers homes if you'd like to add yours here - http://www.jadeoak.com/2013/07/design-in-your-home-link-up.html
