~linen & ruffles~

Happy Tuesday!!


I'm so excited to show you some
linen & ruffles......


I've been having a lot of fun creating new designs, sewing them up & getting
things listed in Etsy!!


first up to show you is the "Emma"
chair slipcover

Emma is skirted and romantic in feel.....


she's made of 100% pure linen, and
is available in white, ivory, natural or oatmeal.


she has simple grosgrain ribbon ties in the back......
and oozes with shabby chic yummy-ness....
shabby, romantic and feminine~

you can find Emma here

~*~

Now I've got some new pillows to show you!

but before I show you the latest,
I need to introduce you to the person who
is making all this creative energy possible!!

Until I found her, I was so bogged down in sewing,
that the creative juices had just DRIED UP!

I don't want to sound negative.....my shoppe has been
a huge blessing......and I have LOVED making your items.....
but I was sewing pretty much 24x7.....which left very little time for anything else....like creating...
or grocery shopping, cleaning, decorating, gardening, cooking....*ahem*....
taking kids places....etc...etc....
so I had to change things up a bit and, I truly believe
an answer to both our prayers, I found Diane!


let's just say that Diane is a sewing super ninja.....
in fact, I am pretty certain all kinds of elves & such
come out the minute she starts to work!

she is an expert seamstress & is now using her
crazy super ninja sewing skills to sew up a storm
for me!!  YaY me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so I am looking forward to more time for creating,
blogging, decorating & everything else in life!

now let me show you a few more goodies that are newly
listed!

these are more along the lines of simple, french farmhouse style.....









I really love the graphic on this pillow.....
it's always fun going shopping for graphics!



well, that's just a small sampling for you.....
it seems blogger won't let me add the rest of my pictures &
after messing with it for an hour.....I gotta give in for
today!

Grainsack pillows are up next.....
I've been procrastinating cutting them because they are so beautiful......but they are now on the chopping block ;)

Have a great week friends!



xo,

~french country living chair slipcover~

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

We are celebrating this day of romance,
here in the NW, with grey skies & rain......

Oh well....we did enjoy some sun last week,
so I guess we're due! :)

I recently created a new chair slipcover
 I thought I'd share with you!


It's available now in the

I really tried to capture the essence
of french country living with
this slipcover ~ it's made with a natural
hopsack linen.... it has tons of yummy texture


it was made with all different chair styles in mind.....
just tie it on and voila!

It's not meant to be fussed over....


just easy & carefree.....



I've been scouring french books trying to
soak up the essence of french country
living ~

the french country look is so natural~
and of course utilizies lots of natural materials....linens, hemp, wood, plaster, travertine, and terra cotta......

all the light fabrics and colors really seem
to soothe the soul...

so this little guy is just a little bit of France
available for anyone out there wishing
to achieve the same carefree look.....


I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
and a great week!!




xoxo,

~farmhouse love in Spain~

Happy Friday!



I am in love with this home in Malaga....
You're wondering what Malaga is huh?


well it's one of 8 provinces in Andalucia, Spain 
this home is nestled in the hills....

* sigh *

I need to move in.

no. really.


how about a little breakfast on the terrace?
in the sunshine?
can you feel it warming up your back?

can you smell the fresh air?

the birds....chirping in the trees?

let's go inside....


you can hang your bag on the little stand there.....
come on in ~ oh you like the terracotta floors?
the high gloss finish?
me too....


let's just leave the doors open ~
so we can feel the breeze & the wonderful fresh air...
mmmmmm........


cozy seating area.....curl up ~ read a book.....
take a little nap.....
enjoy the fire? huh? oh well.....moving right along ;)

let's look at the kitchen....
see what you think about the color.....


more high gloss floors.....
love the open shelves with the baskets...
and I do like the color!
just a little pop of green amid the neutrals....
it fits.

oh but my true love has got to be the
 beams......I seriously love them
seriously want them....

here.


and you know, I have a table very similar to that~
it's my desk....hmmmm.....it's kind of small....
maybe just small enough to fit in our kind of
small kitchen.....?


um....grey & cream.....love it.



would you like to see the master bedroom?
I think you do.... come with me...
although it is gorgeous outside....
we do have a fire going....


it adds to the major fabulous factor
of the room....don't ya think?

too much fabulous-ness to list....
the chair....love
the cabinet....oh yeah...
cozy rug....yup...
oh french doors to the balcony....
and the beams....


really?  so gorgeous....what would it be like to live here?
a fairy tale.....a dream....heaven on earth...

even the guest room is amazing & perfect.....
I LOVE all the cream & white & grey....

oh this is not news to you?
k....;)


Of course I am also loving the turqoise....
just a pop....is all ya need......

oh~ almost forgot to take you through the
master bath....

you might like it....


you might like the shower with the carved doorway....
you might like the flooring.....
is it terracotta? limestone? travertine?
looks like a mix of the 3....
I don't know what it is but I am loving it.


from this angle it looks like polished terracotta again...
maybe it is.

OK...can you seriously feel the breeze coming thru
the open doors and windows?

is the air so fresh & cool right after stepping out of the hot
tub or shower?

ahhhhhhhhh........


pssssssst........

 I really don't want to snap you out of this dream.....
this lovely day dream.....

on the sunny coast of Spain.....

but this is a warning....it's almost over.....

soak it in .... go back sit on the terrace on more time....
breathe deeply....soak in the sun.....


google it ~ save for a vacation.....
:)


Have a wonderful weekend friends!




xoxo,



Shellagh
