A 'Pay it Forward' Obsession

Oh man, it's been a minute.  Or a month.  Or 4 months.  Really, no one is counting...but I still stress about all the things I mean to blog.  Like...our trip to Morocco 700 years ago.  Our glorious time on the Oregon coast 300 years ago...and of course the gobs of good snaps I got at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.  I will get my act together, someday (but my someday is quite the relative term, as I started painting my bedroom 2 months ago and am still hovering around 7% completion)...I need someone to sponsor me and send in a professional painter, STAT!  No, for reals.  

But for now, I must share these wonderful blankets I am obsessing over.  Not only the wonderful patterns, but the mission of the company, which gives a blanket to a homeless shelter, for every one sold!  I just love that.  We all need warmth.  We all deserve cozy and cute.  Now, swoon below over the fabulous designs, and do a little something nice for yourself (or blankets always make great gifts) and someone in need.

Ceiling Fan

 
 It's the little things, in this life...like the breeze of a ceiling fan while sleeping.  We moved into our house 4 years ago and have worked steadily to make it our home.  Finally, we are getting around to replacing the god awful lucite ceiling fan, without lighting, that resided in our bedroom upon purchase...and we have made work, while we searched for it's replacement. I finally just ordered said replacement, and wanted to share this deal.

Wing Back Chairs

I just decided I need a pair of wing back chairs for the sitting area in my bedroom.  'Wing back' often screams 'old lady' but I am honoring that little old grandma would resides in my soul and going with it, of course adding modern and whimsical fabrics.  I excitedly boughta pair of chairs on craigslist for $12 each and am now scoping out fabric to have them recovered in.  Yes, they are totally vintage, claw foot and all and I am already obsessed with them...just not in their current, garish state!

Here is what I am thinking of having the chairs recovered in:

I always think of a set of chairs or a couch as a man in a nice suit.  
So, I am all about classic, solid, wearable fabric.  I am not 
too much into flash on a set of chairs or couch...that's where the pillows
come in!

Side note: on a single chair I would throw caution to the wind 
and go funky!  Especially on an old vintage chair that is screaming
for some funk!
 I just can't decide if I wan to go dark or light???


and pillows in these (I like to think of pillows as the 
neck tie accompanying a classic suit...be bold) :

 I just love this, and think it will play off our bedding nicely.
Thinking a nice medium sized square pillow

I am totally gaga over this fabric!  I think it will pair
nicely with the pattern above.  Thinking a lumbar 
pillow to sit in front of the square gold/cream fabric.


I literally want to glaze my walls in this pattern!!! 

I am also liking this, but not as much as the birds!

So, I would love your feedback.  Call me, text me, leave me a comment...give me your thoughts.  Then, come spring, come read books and gossip with me in what will be the coziest little nook.  I cannot wait!
