A little red in my kitchen.
Loving my new cordless roller shades in color tomato from Ronica's Custom Creations! All my favorite things in the kitchen are red!
The Iconic Tiger
Who doesn't love a tiger? The iconic Scalamandre Tigre silk, first introduced by Franco Scalamandre in the early 60's, is still going strong in both modern and traditional interior design. First woven in Italy, and now being manufactured in the USA. But the beauty of the silk velvet can't touch the real deal! These beautiful creatures can be seen at The Carolina Tiger Rescue in Pittsboro, NC. https://carolinatigerrescue.org/
Sometimes when it comes to seat cushions it is best to Keep It Simple Silly. This chair cushion was created by inserting a flat pillow into an antique linen pillowcase. VOILA! Easy to clean and super comfy.
One of my neighbors has inspired me to pick up my yarn over, and I'm so in love with knitting again. What's your winter crush?
It takes guts!
It takes guts to try new products! So excited to receive these sustainable products at my door and can't wait to experiment with alternative cushion guts.
And just like that ... it's 2022.
So some stuff happened in 2021 in and around the workshop and beyond. Learned to make cheesestraws, toured Asheville in a golf cart, said goodbye to a furry friend, found an awesome new foam supplier, built some stuff, hosted a pumpkin roll, made some pretty slipcovers, noticed nature, celebrated fourth of July, birthdays, Christmas and New Years, saw a moon eclipse, and a few more sunrises and sunsets, and waited for the swans.

2019 was a little white too.
