Simplify

I have hit a wall.........you know how some days it's just harder. You feel a bit down, start to marinade in it........then feel foolish because you really have a great life and there are so many other people who are much worse off than you......you know that kind of day......that's what I'm having........but I see chocolate in my future and this blog lifted my spirit.


Simplify.......Yep, it spoke to me. The title that is, because Lord knows I have nothing in common with her talents. First of all she sews and we all know that I don't.


But viewing all the pretty fabrics.........and the amazing quilts..........I keep thinking "maybe I could sew and make one of these" That would be totally like me..........just start with a project WAY out of my league, then throw a hissy fit and be back in square one where I was today. Chocolate people............I need chocolate......better yet, I think I'll go make one of these.



OK, OK.........much better.



Camille is one talented momma.........and young too. She is definitely a person to watch for fabric stardom. Seriously. Not only does she make quilts............she designs patterns! Amazing.
Her site is full of beautiful photos of fabric, quilts, and glimpses of her home and family. Speaking of fabric............she is now designing fabric too! GET OUT!She is having a giveaway..........I don't think it's over yet. This photo above is so pleasing and it's on the giveaway post. Love the stacked quilts..........love the creamy colors............, the bird, the wreath........love the art piece from Ballard's. Yea, that's right, I know the Ballard's catalog inside and out.
So even if you don't quilt, or sew..........her blog is still so inspiring with her photos. She's very talented with her photo settings.
Love this one........with the green table leg........makes me all warm inside. Or maybe it's this I'm drinking.
And just to keep up with the show off aspect that all my features share.......she re-upholstered that chair.......yes, the polka dot one. TO DIE FOR!






And just to make me feel better, I love this photo below the best................because I too own that frame. This proves that I do have good taste. Yes, the quilt is nice too.Enjoy! Don't forget to leave her a TCB bump..........that's a comment for you new people.
