My Soul Is Made of Wildflowers

I am soooo in love with my new pattern, My Soul is Filled With Wildflowers!  Maybe it is because I know I am a "wild child" clear through my soul.  I designed this pattern while I was up in the mountains a couple of weeks ago with nothing much to do but doodle and stitch....

Of course I had to add all of my favorite wild flowers and denim (because I live in it).  It is a simple pattern and easy to stitch.  The pattern and instructions are available in the the shop. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do....

Chairish

Last week I was asked to participate in a design challenge for the fabulous on-line shop Charish.  Chairish is where people who love design buy and sell designer furniture and accessories and a fraction of the original cost.  The challenge was to look through their current finds and pull together a look that blends current and vintage design.


If you follow me on social media you know that my style is all about taking the old and making it new and fresh.  I was raised on a farm in upstate New York that had been in our family since 1860.  Our home was filled with antiques and family heirlooms as well as modern pieces my grandmother had purchased.  I'm sure this is where I get my love of anything old, used, and worn.  

I was blown away by their rug collection.  There were hundreds of vintage rugs from across the world in every size, color and texture.  A well chosen rug can be a great anchor piece for a room, and is often the inspiration I use to pull everything else together.



I have created a couple of design boards using items found on Chairish.  There is a little mix of old and new...and of course color...because who can live in a grey and white world?  





I loved shopping the Chairish site. It was like walking through the best vintage consignment shop...in your jammies!  I hope you find a few must-haves on Charish too. Happy shopping!!!
