~lovely farmhouse & Q's answered ~

hello there!!

we've got marine air here this morning.....
it feel so nice & refreshing...roughly 65ish...


I had lots of questions regarding the
"birds in a nest" tutorial
so I'll do my best to answer those today....

then I'll show you a fabulous farmhouse!!
{sneak peek above....}

ok...your Q's....
on how to get this


from this


and this!

Your Questions:

Q: Is the ink permanent? Can I wash it?
A: Yes, it's permanent!  Hand wash inside out w/ a very mild soap is best & hang to dry!  The dryer will fade the image!!

Q: Does the fabric smell like Citra-Solve?
A: Just a tiny bit, until you iron the image then it's barely, if at all, noticeable.

Q: Will another brand work?:
A: I think so, I've heard it does but I've never tried another brand so I couldn't tell you for sure! 

Q: Is there any way to do this w/ an inkjet printer?
A: Nope....tried it &  n o t h i n g ...

Q: Where do you find the images?
A: The Graphics Fairy is a fantastic place for
free images with no copyright issues.  Click here for her blog!

Q: Where did I get my fabric w/ the nice weave?
A: It's the natural hopsack linen from JoAnn's
Superstore.

Q: Where do I find Citra-Solve?
A: At natural food stores, like Whole Foods in the
Pacific Northwest.  Click here for their website

Q: Does this method work better than the iron-on
method?
A: I think so!  I like it because the image soaks right into the fibers of the fabric....looks like it's always been there.  There's no shiny or plastic covering on the image like iron on. 

Q: Do I just take the image to a kinko's or someplace
to enlarge?
A:  Yes, but make sure the copier is toner based.
Not all copy shops use toner copiers.  I tried Office Depot & theirs did not work.

Q: Do I need to make a mirror image if there's writing on the image?
A: Yes, you can do this under printing preferences on your computer.  It's usually in the same place where you change your image from portrait to landscape.

I think that's everything!
Let me know if I missed your question!

OK.....now for some farmhouse eye candy...
yum city.....



this is Pamela Kline's lovely Canadian home on Prince Edward Island....

ok...can I just say I am dying for painted
wood on the walls & ceilings of our home????


and hello craigslist?  I'd like to order this farm table for...... let's just say..... hmmmmm.....$100 bucks?!


she loves decorating with "toile and ticking!"
too funny!!

love this bedroom!
{of course :)}


her cute little grandsons in their
awesome bedroom!


I am IN LOVE with this next picture!!
she had her home's longitude & latitude printed
on the pillow! How cool is that???



now I gotta hurry.....my friend's waiting
for me at the gym to do water aerobics...

I told her 5 more minutes on my blog post...
so no proof reading today...
no preview before posting today....
I hope I don't embarass myself...


I need this place....



what a dream huh?


have a wonderful day friends!

I'm gonna go jump in some water now!
:)



xo,



Shellagh

That is gorgeous! Beautiful house! Hmmm... I have wood on my ceilings and walls- I'm thinking possibly time to redecorate a bit more beachy!! I just seem to always want the rich woods and colors in my home so they tend to win out over the really dreamy gorgeous neutral palettes...but you never know... it could happen!! :)
