Yep, just hanging out in Mommy and Daddy's bed (note the completely awesome framed Beatles poster in the background). He seems to like it there. Can't imagine why.
I have been dying to get back, though, so I guess this is the kickoff. I had something really exciting in mind for my first post, but somehow it has eluded me.
|Good Life Chintz, Spring|
Take a look at my fabric choices, Ollie Mango and Good Life Chintz, Spring, respectively. Aren't they fantastic? I love GIANT prints.
I have a few undisclosed projects in mind, including making over a few of my living room pillows with the green fabric. I need a little brightness in my life.
I have used their fabric before for this purpose, as well as a super cool framed piece that I have hanging in our entry way (see below).
But, as my parents fondly say, those projects are "ATW." After the wedding. Right now, I have been instructed not even to purchase another book for my Kindle, for fear that I might get distracted and stop the endless wedding prep work.
In fact, I hadn't even given much thought to fabricy (fabricky?) home projects until I had the bright idea to get a custom drape quote from Tonic Living for the outdoor curtains we'll have at the wedding.
And actually, if I didn't think we were capable of creating them on our own, I would have undoubtedly had them make the drapes. The quote was around $600, for beautiful fabric custom-made into 40 yards of curtain! That's pretty incredible.

The gal over at Rambling Renovators had some made for her living room, and they are GORGE! But I digress. Again, ATW.
So I've been perusing the Internet in search of outdoor-wedding-curtain inspiration, and have come up mostly empty.

Here are a few photos I happened upon, none of which capture the "fabric wall" essence we are aiming for.
What about you? Ever seen any giant outdoor curtains I might take inspiration from? I am looking for how-to's and photographic muses!
Anyway, I look forward to sharing our wedding/ new home/ new baby journey with you, as well as some new accessories on the Etsy shop! More to come soon, and I promise not to leave you ever again! :)
