~cabbages and roses~{and a giveaway winner}

 Cabbages and Roses has just launched the Northcote Range of quilting fabrics with MODA at the Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, UT.  It’s a beautiful vintage floral collection, with some wonderful bold stripes and motifs as well…and this will be the first time fabric from Cabbages & Roses will be available in America!
 They sent me some of these great blue fabrics to play around with and I wanted to share with you what I came up with. I just love florals, as well as stripes, so I was super excited to work with it.
I chose to put it on the seats, fronts, and backs of these great vintage parlor chairs.
{these will be coming to ruffles and rust shortly if you are interested in purchasing them}
 I love mixing and matching fabrics, and the colors in these fabrics, although slightly different, compliment each other well.
 Cabbages and roses has a blog you can see here.
To see their website and order fabric, go here.

And the winner of the silpada giveaway from the independent consultant Lucy Donnely is:
Cortney from Faith. Home. Love!
Congrats!
Now, how about another giveaway?
Why not. They are so much fun! 
If you'd like to win a copy of Cabbages and Roses at home with country, leave me a comment on this post.
This is going to be a quick one. I will pick a winner on Monday, because on Monday I have another giveaway planned!
xoxo

I was so tempted to purchase those last weekend in Snohomish. I can attest to just how adorable they are in person. And practically irresistable...

Curtis said...

Love the chairs!!! My wife and I decorate with many shades and patterns of blue through out our home. But we are particulary fond of rose and stripe patterns!!!! Love your blog. Was wondering if you and your neighbors had your canoe cocktail party again this year, that blog got me to thinking, while we do not live on a lake we do live on a year round creek, and I have been toying with having a Creekside cocktail hour.... Keep up the great work!!!
Blessings

Cute chairs, but to be honest what really introduced me to your blog was a post you placed on Dec 12th, 2008 with a photo of a home decopauged onto a wood plaque. I had 2 questions about it and not sure how else to contact you...

1) when you decopauged the photo onto the plaque, did you just do it on the back of the photo to get it to stick to the wood or also the photo side. When you mentioned sanding the photo I wasn't sure if that look came from the decopauge on the photo part or not, or if you just sanded on the clean photo surface

2) also, what type of glaze did you use to make it look more shabby chic? Sorry for all of the questions, but I am not that crafty so need every detail :) Thanks!
