The other day
I dreamed about ruffles
No not those ruffled potato chips
but floppy, gathered, romantic bits of fabrics.
The ones that wrap around pillows, make a perfect edge on duvets
and that layer on sweet skirts that you wear when you are indulging that girly side
I thought about those ruffles as I was digging through boxes looking for Christmas stuff
and choosing the right tree and setting aside just the right colors of
pretty glass ornaments to go with it.
Don't ask me why- I don't have a good answer.
It is just how my mile a minute in 25 different directions brain works sometimes.
I realized I was missing some of that romantic touch that ruffles bring to a room.
You know, how they perfectly finish the edge of a pillow
and flop just so where ever they are placed.
How a ruffle along the edges of a duvet adds that little touch of drama and elegance and it just makes that linen feel so much more sweet than if it was simply finished with a cording.
Ruffles can be big and loose ruffles or tucked tightly with just a little flirt to them
basically, anything goes. I say go forth and ruffle the way you like.
A few favorites of mine are the ruffled drop cloth chair skirts I made
and the big old ruffled tablecloth that seriously made me question my sanity
when I was making it.
But my latest ruffle obsession comes courtesy of HomeGoods- where I picked up all of these gorgeous overstuffed white pillows
with a perfect little gauze ruffle trimming them.
Perfectly white- and perfectly priced too- just $19 and $29 for the larger ones.
Yep- the pillow insert and cover included.
Yes, you know that I fed that ruffle obsession and brought them home with me.
I am loving them in the living room for Summer
and they will be perfect with that Christmas shoot I am working on too.
Yes, pretty sure there is always a place for a little romantic ruffle.
A little more HomeGoods fun~
