Subway Art Pillow....

Not much going on, just making pillows and painting stuff for my booth.  I thought I'd try a subway art image on some drop cloth fabric.
It turned out pretty good....
The image is from Graphique etsy shop.

Love how this one turned out too....

I now have both panels up in the living room.  I'm loving this new look.  Some of you asked about the name of this fabric.  It's Braemore Garden Toile Aqua.  $16.20 per yard from On Line Fabric Store.

Gabby has a new friend.  "She doesn't say much Mommie, but at least she doesn't eat my treats!"

Hope ya'll have a great weekend and find lots of good stuff.

Haha! Love Gabby's friend, Sissie! I'll bet she's a perfect friend, too ~ always listening and never offering an opinion. : )

Love your pillows! The You Are My Sunshine pillow is just lovely and my favorite of the two. The drapes look fantastic, Sissie! I think it was just what you needed to bring in with that lovely color, and who doesn't like a beautiful toile.

Cindy said...

Oh my gosh Sissy, your curtain panels look amazing! You know, they add alot of depth to the room, or something i can't really define. Just beautiful. And, i am all over script on stuff right now after getting the shams from you. I just love the look.


Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Sissie...we have the exact living room...I love the panels..I have gone back and forth with placing panels on those bank of windows..Did not want to cover the heavy trim that surrounds the windows..

I also had that very same fabric in my home in Florida...However it was in the raspberry and cream colors...

Love what you have done!

Custom Comforts said...

Love your drapes and those windows are divine! I would kill for windows like that and the light they would let in. What a beautiful room and how much you must enjoy being in it.
Love your roses too. I haven't seen those, but have a head of lettuce like that and I love it. I have used it several times already in posts.

Your home is just beautiful and you have a great talent for decorating. But this is why I am commenting... When I got to that picture of Gabby and her new 'friend' I laughed out loud! She has such a look in her face... like the is thinking "Don't you DARE!".
