Two times in the last few months, I have gone into Hobby Lobby with a big list in hand, passed through the fabric department and been totally seduced.
Last week I was on task, looking for glass jars for my sea shells
minding my own business
when I looked up and saw this
I walked by
and then around
and to the front
all the while talking myself out of it
as I headed back toward the fabric department I was
saying things to myself like,
what if it all gets sold I would be so mad
I'll just get a couple of yards...
it's 33% off all the time
So...I bought it
A fabric that I love and have no earthly idea what in the world I will do with
I purchased 2 yards
I love the 54" fabrics that have the color circles on the side so you can mix and match
As I look at the colors in this happy little print, I realize so much of the art I have (currently being stored under beds, in the cellar, in the garage)...have these same colors in common.
I'm drawn to them no matter how much I like the all white look
One of my favorites..hubs bought it for me when we had a
granddaughter to call me "Poppy"
I can't wait to hang it
I think I will paint the walls of my art loft a soft buttery yellow...the antique buffet the wonderful juicy raspberry and the inside of the turret some kind of deeper yellow hue...leaning toward gold. I think I will find some kind of artsy phrase and free hand it on the wall. I also found a cute little glass mosaic mirror at Pier 1 that looks like a sunflower. Yep...
That will be the basic. Then I'll put all kinds of fun fabrics in the purples and greens on the gypsy daybed.
but I really like that brown
that would be unusual...a different plan? No.
Believe it or not...I'm not that far from paint on the walls! And then...look out...I am going to be doing some projects!
like making me a pallet table
That Mr. Hobby Lobby sure knew what he was doing when he put the fabric in the back.
Like the bathrooms in a casino
