~heavenly ruffles~

Hello everyone!!

Holy smokes!
It's been waaaaaaaaaaay toooooooo loooooong
since I've blogged!



I have been soooooo busy in my little
that I've just not had any extra time.....

I used to be a blogger with an Etsy store,
and now clearly it's the other way around!


I used to be decorator (completely unprofessional of course)
who did projects & such and surfed craigslist
for the latest amazing deal~


now I'm searching linen shops looking for
the best linen I can find.....and washing & drying
voluminous piles of fabric...
(all the while trying not to catch
our house on fire by the sheer volume of
lint that finds it way through out our 
dryer!!)


so a little rearranging (of my life that is)
has taken place over the past couple years.....

it's been a huge blessing & I really do love it!!
I don't know what it is about beautiful linen but it just stirs my soul......and it really brings me a lot of joy to
hear back from happy customers!! :)


I originally worked alone (oh man....not fun! my 
own little sweat shop!!)
and about 1 1/2 years ago I started working with
another gal who can sew up a storm!  
together we create amazing linens


 so many of my customers are just fabulous!
Sweet women who are just darling to work with.....

one such customer/blogger/Michigan BFF/
 & overall amazing human being is


always dreaming up something beautiful
for me to create & oftentimes sends me
some secret stash of super cool fabric to work with!!

so her latest idea was this tiered ruffled bedskirt....
cut from a couple duvet covers she had stashed away! :)


I just love the way it turned out!
so dreamy & perfect in her totally 2die4 Michigan
farmhouse!

I keep threatening to move in.....don't care what 
bedroom she gives me....any will work! hehehe! :)

If you by chance don't know Laurie
she is totally awesome!

she'll make you die laughing one day &
the next tear up while reading a sweet &
sentimental story....

Hope you all are doing great &
enjoying every minute of your summer.....
