You might remember that a few weeks ago I bought a small oval table at the Burlington Antique Show. With some, ahem, slightly outdated blue hydrangea stickers on the top, it wasn’t our style. But I liked the shape, and the size was a perfect fit between the two ivory chairs in our family room. So what better way to make it work than to whip up a diy side table makeover?

The Results Are In!
Calling All Voters!
Forget politics, I’m talking home decor-ics!
The rug I chose for our piano corner has arrived. But now I can’t decide which side should be “up.” Technically, there’s a “right” side and a “wrong” side, but in my opinion, it works either way.
Which do you like best?
[Please try your best to imagine an oak-colored piano sitting atop the rug!]
Friday Photo Reel
my latest owl buddy, hanging out on top of one of my copies of Pride and Prejudice
autumn isn’t that far off! these colors stood out to me; bold, warm and the perfect palette for my purple & yellow family room / kitchen!
discovered this enormous caterpillar, plus his three BFFs, on my tomato plants this week. Google told me he’s a nuisance to gardens (i.e. eats like there’s no tomorrow), so they were promptly relocated to the woods.

Purple Hearts Yellow
Remember the fabric sneak peek I posted a few weeks ago?
And the new placemats I recently made?
Well, I finally finished my latest yellow creations!
The two 16″ x 16″ pillows on each end are Premier Prints Chipper Slub in Corn Yellow; the two 12″ x 16″ pillows in the center are Premier Prints ZigZag Slub in yellow/white. I found both of these fabrics, plus the Premier Prints Suzani Slub in yellow/white that I used for the placemats, at Fabric.com.
And finally, the whole family together:
I love the spunky, modern cheerfulness of these prints. And I’m loving the bold statement they make in our family room!
