I love to tend my home. I love to rearrange furniture *a lot*. I love to change the pictures on our walls, and move them from room to room. I guess you could say, I like to make our home feel fresh and new without much expense.
One day when I was at the fabric outlet, I spied a beautiful fabric that had a vintage feel to it. I pulled it out, looked at it, put it back. Came back to it and bought two yards!
It has a light green background with cream colored dots and a beautiful floral pattern on it. It is perfect for Summer. I used it to make a small valance for my kitchen window - I love to be able to see out the window and to let the sunshine in!
I also made two simple pillow covers...
So fresh and pretty! These are the pillow forms that I covered with my Waverly ticking stripe - you can find that post here.
I have a bit of fabric left, but am not sure what to do with it...any ideas?
Doing these kinds of small things delight me and help me focus on homemaking in the midst of running a business.
The valance and pillows make me happy...what things around your house make you happy?
