Since its inception, this book has been on every slipcover diva's wish list, and yesterday it arrived at my door. The Home Decor Idea Book: Slipcovers, written and illustrated by Jackie Von Tobel
is even more phenomenal than I thought it would be. Can't wait to curl up in a comfy chair and drift off into slipcover embellishment dreamland. Thank you Jackie for this gift to slipcoveristas of the world!
I had so much fun this week hosting the Triangle WCAA and facilitating a Show-n-tell Showoff of embellishments!
Growing up in Tarboro, NC, I was never much of a showoff. As a matter of fact, when I was a little girl, I was very quiet and even painfully shy. Often when I did do a little talkin', my Mama would ask me, "Now Linda, you aren't telling me a little story, are you?" And I would answer, "Oh no, Ma'am, I am telling you the truth." Well today when Mama asks me if I am telling a story, I say "Oh yes I am!" And my stories are no longer little, they are big. And I always embellish them.
Now as you know, an embellishment can be part fact and part fiction!
Happy Mother's Day Mama!
You are such a big part of my story.
And that's the truth.
