A little something for myself

I was in love with Studio E’s Etching fabrics that were out earlier this year.  I wanted to create pillowcases to add some color to our neutral bedroom.  Lots of brown and tan in there.  Blue is color hubby and I can agree on.  You might remember my Vintage Modern post from earlier about looking for fabrics that would go well in our room.  There is still lots of design work to be done in there, but we are focusing on other locations in the house right now…the basement.

Here are the completed pillowcases:

So far we have had two nights of sweet dreams on them.  Hubby commented that maybe he should leave more often since I did these while he was on a camping trip.

Oscar Inspired Fabrics

I must admit I did not watch a minute of Oscar coverage.  Hubby and I were busy watching the first couple of episodes of Boardwalk Empire.  While watching, I did have the laptop up and looking at the fashions from the Oscars.  It was easy to spot a couple of trends right away…gold, silver, metallic, shimmer, and sheer.  LOVE.

This is one of my favorite looks of the night.

Wonder what else we will see this spring with these colors?
