DREAMY RUFFLES



It's true...


I have been having a bit of a love affair.



What can I say?
I have no excuse ...
I can't even apologize for it...

because I kind of like it

I have been drawn to the romantic lately.
To the dreamy, the shabby, the delightfulness of faded colors,
vintage fabrics and lots of
ruffles.


I see table linens, a duvet cover for my bed, pillow covers
and slipcovers... all made from something different.



I had a round ottoman that was needing some love...
so I got out the scissors and turned that something from Overstock into a slipcover.



I am loving how it turned out
and with all it's dreamy white ruffliciousness...
it's perfect.
