OOOOOHHhhhhh, Look What I Got! It's SO Pretty Polly!
I got a box! :)
You wanna see what came in the mail today?? I was so excited to see this box cause I knew the treasure that awaited inside! I was the lucky girl that bid on a vintage barkcloth drapery panel. :) I've been wanting some fabric for new pillows for a while and when I saw this panel I knew I had found the piece of fabric I'd been searching for. I wanted something with some browns and pinks...that's hard to find, but this has it all! Have you ever seen something and just knew it was calling out your name........that's what happened with me and this panel- love at first sight! When I opened the box this is what it looked like, didn't she do a lovely job wrapping it up........it felt like Christmas!
How wonderful a seller this lady is, she had it tied up with a sweet piece of ribbon and even had a hand made thank you card inside! :) The sellers name is Polly and she's downsizing a bit and is selling off a bunch of her lovely fabrics. My mom bought a full pair of barkcloth drapes, but I fell in love with the pattern on this one panel. :) I can't wait to start making my pillows.... I want to make some for my living room and a couple for my back porch area! (I have chocolate brown wicker, won't this be pretty on there?!) Yay!!
Here's the pretty little handmade card...isn't that just the sweetest thing! If you'd like to look up some stuff for yourself, her ebay seller name is love_of_horses, she still had lots of pretty stuff the last time I looked and she said she would be putting up more. Her name is Polly, tell her Melissa sent you! :)
Okay, now here is my lovely drapery panel all laid out on my bed...isn't it scrumptious!! It's almost edible it's so pretty! lol I do LOVE fabric!
Here's a close up of the pretty bouquets....aren't the colors just wonderful! I promise I'll blog on the pillows when I get them all done........but it might be a while, I have several projects ahead of this one. :-) (who me?, do projects?!) LOL
Thanks so much Polly for my pretty fabric!
