A Study in White

It’s been a while, but with school back in session and my days back to being my own, I’m ready to indulge in inspiration for freshening up my home and getting ready for the cool months ahead. I’ve been blog hopping and finding gorgeous images to share, so I thought I’d do just that today. While these images aren’t necessarily about French inspired fabrics and textures – they are textural eye candy and some wonderful ideas from other European sources.  ENJOY!

This lovely arrangement caught my eye on a blog called Lantliv i stan – which is a lovely Swedish blog.   I’m no expert on foreign languages, but I think when it comes to beauty we all speak the same language.  I’m in love with the white flatware! Where in the world can I get white flatware? Love the printed napkins too!  So happy to have found this blog, I hope you’ll enjoy it too!

Anna K, who writes this blog says “… as blog name implies, I will get the most from the "rural style" and it can mean anything from Danish white, retro, antique, Green Gates dots to a small dose Cath Kidston! Welcome!

Introducing “Flouncy Flouncy” Bags from Mama’s Pocketbook

Flouncy Flouncy

I'm so excited to introduce my newest line of One of a Kind Bag Designs
Flouncy Flouncy!!
Featuring a OOAK Assortment of Amy Butler Blue & Green Print Fabrics

Perfect fun tote for everyday use. Roomy inside with two large fully lined pockets. Lightweight, but sturdy construction. Outer bag and inner lining are made of 7 oz. cotton and interfaced with fusible fleece for soft shaping. Tabs with magnetic closures secure your bag without making it impossible to carry a full load! The tabs also insure that the magnetic closures will not tear the lining of your bag with repeated use.

Flouncy Flouncy


These ruffles are Lush! There are 10 different Amy Butler fabrics coordinated on this bag. Each ruffle fabric is doubled (no single layered flimsy ruffles here!) and triple stitched to the outer shell of the bag. You'll find 5 different prints on each side of the bag - there will not be a duplicate of this bag's exact arrangement.

It is truly one of a kind!

Flouncy Flouncy


Finished dimensions: 13" wide x 11" tall x 4" bottom width.

Tote Price $64.00  - You can also purchase coordinating accessories!

The Winners of My Blog Giveaway!

I decided to include the comments from Facebook since I didn’t designate that all comments had to be on the blog itself. The purpose was to get new faces looking at my website and blog and to have some fun and that was definitely accomplished between all areas of the giveaway!  AND… since I ended up with a total of 21 combined comments, reposts, shares, or other promo methods, I am going to use to create two winners for my little giveaway.

I’ll post a list of the names of the entries in order of the time of each post, then I will have the Randomizer generate a random shuffle of the list and whoever ends up in the #1 spot will win a  Mama’s Pocketbook Custom Card Case handcrafted by me!
