R, S, T

R is for Red. I love the color red. Our couches are red. My wallet is red (red faux alligator - I thought I would get tired of it soon after purchasing. It's about two years old and it still makes me smile when I pull it out of my purse). I have a red purse. And one of my more recent red purchases (and an Etsy one) - My Bird of Happiness is Red by John W. Golden.


S is for Space - the theme in my boys' bedroom, inspired by this quilt, made by my amazingly talented Mom. She even made two, so there is one for each of the boys, once they are both in big boy beds and sharing a room. And the space theme continues with another John W. Golden purchase, although this one is still waiting to be framed.


T is for Tote. When Ginny showed the little birdie fabric she found, I loved it. A little bit ago, on an impulse, I sent her a convo to ask if she had any more totes made from it - two minutes later, she listed this one at isew.biz reserved it for me. Now that's service! And, those little birdies are just as lovely in person.

I got one of the birdie totes, too!

It's a gift for my Grandma and Ginny even made some small alterations for me - she's a great Etsy seller!

Have a wonderful weekend : )

I like your print very much. And I've had my eye on that tote in Ginny's shop for a while. Seeing yours convinced me to go buy one in her shop! :)

I love a great splash of red color! For a while there my fabric stash was a little one sided with reds. My couch is red as well.

That tote fabric is great. She certainly had a great find with that!
