Hickity Pickity for Jenny Eliza

hickity hickityp hickitypick HickityPi HICK HickitypickitySo by now you have heard of Hickity Pickity and I know for some of you it can be confusing because we are always talking about them on Facebook. they are the leaders in their genre. They use quilting fabrics for all of their products and we couldn’t be happier that they are smitten with both Sis Boom and Jenny Eliza. Judy Buchannan has been the visionary of Hickity Pickity and now along with her daughter they have artistically styled a very branded look.  They bow to Lily Pulitzer but have a certain signature that moves beyond that and distinguishes them from the pack.  They are also the ones that got the Aussies all their Jenny Eliza and we are so grateful for their generosity.  Hickity Pickity  you make us thirst for more of the incredible style that is you!!! Follow them, They will make you anything, you will enjoy working with them. They are in Florida and ship internationally!!! Organic Moments thanks for all the beautiful photos.

Fabulous Idea

Christy Bennett had an idea a year ago and after lots of consideration she has launched what I deem to be the next best thing from this world.  Are you ready???  Pre-made, lined, drapes!!!! I just think this is an idea that will be a huge hit!!  I am over the moon excited.  Once they find Darling Drapery  they’ll just have to deal with which ones to get!!!!  So many possibilities and she makes it affordable!!! Christy I think you are on the tipping point of something big and I know it is going to take off!!!  throw drapes up and have a party!!!! Match some pillows and you are good to go.  Congrats Christy!!So get over to Etsy and take a look at her collection.  I know you will love what you see….which room will you tackle first?

Lazy Lazy Girl

I’ve neglected my blog and the work is piling up!!  Please forgive me. I devote so much time to sewing these days and I really need to get on the stick? ..off the stick? and why a stick?  Anywho I miss you all and I’ve wanted to share with you the greatest project I did this summer …I mean we.  Katies boyfriend Berto painted the dresser below with Annie Sloans Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint, forget the paint, that name sends me to the moon!!! I knew I had to have it and yes pricey for a pint but I still have a 1/2 a can left!!!   This woman is brilliant, her colors are fabulous and the videos and tips on various sites and youtube make the whole thing go quite quickly.  I want to paint everything this color just so I can say Napoleonic  Blue..feels so noble..Royal!! So take a look and tell her I sent you.  Not that she’ll care or even know who I am….So inhale this beautiful dresser if you like.. The knobs are from Anthropologie but a little to transparant..not showing up..so I painted the back white so no light could shine through and now they pop!!!  So I promise from here on forward not to neglect my Blog duties but please say you’ll keep coming..xoxoxo  Oh and sweet boy George was such a big help!

PS this has nothing to do with chalkboard paint..

Bittersweet

The bus went by today and it’s always a trigger for longing..It went by so fast and yet I am so grateful to be present for all of it.  There is so much that can take us out of the day to day , we see it all the time.  I ‘m just so glad to have felt all the good the bad and the ugly.  There is something so precious about being present and available to our kids.  I love mine to bits and  I do miss the wonder that they experience in front of you every day..It’s exquisite.  So when I saw this beautiful quilt on the beach that Jane from Maiden Jane made it made me miss their youth even more.  She created something so beautiful that will be packed with memories over the years!  Have you met Jane be sure to follow her she is delightful.  Crazy Love is no longer being produced but lots of places carry them.  Here’s one place I found. Quilt Home has a ton!!
