Not only can you print your  own creations, but you can look through thousands of other fabrics they have turned out. The site has a useful feature that allows you to visualize the repeats in your pattern. You can choose from five different fabrics including organic cotton sateen, upholstery weight cotton, & knit. The prices range from $18 to $32 per yard & you can even purchase swatch samples before you buy yardage. Custom printed fabric is only a few brain storming sessions away. Click HERE to check it out!

He will make them like new again using old world techniques. Don’t worry, if kevin is not there, he and Garth Proctor alternate weeks at the market. Also, each freshly sharpened knife comes with a complimentary BAND-AID.

center piece

Make a seasonal center piece with fruit, greenery and flowers from your yard. (or your neighbor’s.) Simply place your findings in a bowl of water and arrange the way you like. When styling the center piece remember to group things in threes or odd numbers. Symmetry is not always pleasing to eye! Floral foam & picks are ideal but not necessary, as the life expectancy of your clippings may be short.

As you know just about anything your heat desires can be found on Etsy, but did you know they have furniture too? These photos are from SpruceHome, a great shop that sells refurbished vintage furniture. Please peruse their shop, I feel sure you will fall in love with their combination of carved wood and ultra-modern graphic prints. Even if you have no room in your home (or wallet) for these pieces, you can choose one as a muse for your next project.
