To keep fabrics neat fold & roll, stand rolls up in baskets ...make it fun ..make it interesting ..think different !
Use Vintage Dolly Pins to wind on your ribbons and keep them all neat ..I like to stand them in groupings inside of a large Mason jar ...labeling them with glorious color names such as 'Watermelon' 'Wavercrest Green' 'Smoothie Peach' is just lots of fun and makes a cute visual
It's no secret that I have a love of beautiful shabby chic linens...especially French ones ..and anything Vintage
Almost all of the 156 pillow designs I have in my shops will fit in to Shabby Chic decors ..here is one of my own designs with Humming Birds and large pink roses ...all of the pillows in this blog are available in my shops ...eBay.com or Etsy.com ..Buttons that lead to my shops are on the right hand side just below my Maisonvogue heading ..most of them are only $20 and all handmade from scratch including the designing of them with FREE Shabby Gift Wrapping & matching tag ...most of them unique to only my shops
I am hoping to buy French linens during my visit to France this Summer ..can't wait to see what I can find
This pillow is one of my many Victorian and Edwardian Ladies to be found in my collection of pillows
Just a few of my favorite vintage bed linens in one of my little cabinets ...which one to choose ?
Luxurious linens to lay one's head on ..one of life's little luxuries ..
Just a small selection of some of the shabby ribbon's and lace I have in my sewing room
Some of my everyday bedding is just made from fabric scraps that I love and have acquired from a thrift store or market ....it's very easy to make your own perfect pillow cases ..have a go ..to make them really special tie the openings with really fancy ribbons ..make them your own ... Always mix and match for the best effect !!
These two pillows are among my best sellers ...especially the Bee ...such fun to design them both just for you
All thrift store finds...they give such joy ...you never know what you will find ..making it extra interesting ..I always know what I will do with them and where I will put them otherwise you will end up with just a big hoarding mess ..not pretty
A few of my Paris Collection of pillows ...always popular
These three hearts I have made to give as gifts to three Special friends but in the next few months I will get some made for to sell in my shops ..each one made with lots of love and care using vintage laces etc.
Try putting a little shabby in to your life ...you won't be sorry and most times each item has a story not just something you bought in a gift shop ...create your own style ...something you love and are proud to call your own ...
I love anything artsy I especially love sewing and vintage prints and shabby chic ...pretty feminine things to adorn the home
