a winning color combination

i am in the process of picking new colors for the inside of our house and these two photos are my current inspiration and obsession. i especially love the color combination in the bedroom. The taupe, white and that little touch of french blue are truly an amazing combination.

one of my favorite pictures

i love the old cabinet/bookcase full of antique apothecary jars and old botanical prints, the black chair with the tied on hemp slipcover and the zinc dolly tubs (i have two of these myself that i absolutely LOVE and won't be selling) ... and just that hint of gold with guilded french chair ... perfect.

for the love of urns and orchids

i never met an urn or orchid i did not adore. i was going to list this fun vintage pair of pottery urns on ETSY until Mr. Oscar came home with a few of these beauties ... he knows i am crazy about orchids ... i can't get enough of them. i grew up in the tropics and they were everywhere ... i have amazing memories of eating dinner outside at a friends house and on the trunks of all the cocunut trees there were clusters of flowers in every color ... simply surreal.

i love how they look in these great urns ... i guess i will wait to list these in my shop.

Money Bag Pillows

Just finished ... a collection of fun pillows made from vintage business and bank bags and feed sacks.

each is paired with a wonderfully soft, pristine canvas ... stuffed with a feather insert.

my personal favorite ... the lumber pillow ... made from an employees apron ... has pockets on the front where it would be fun to insert a wrench, a screwdriver ...

measurements range from 18 inches to 20 inches.

i will bring these to my sale this weekend and then they will be listed on Etsy.
