Finding the Fabulous on Etsy

 If you are a girl who likes to have the one of a kind, then look no further than this artist who screens and prints her own linen. She can work with you to design your fabric, then she will construct the pillows, tea towels, napkins, coasters, or wall hangings or give you the option of purchasing the fabric  itself so that you can recover your chairs or have your curtains made. The possibilities are literally endless!

I wish I were smart enough to come up with some of these things. I love the sleek look of the stainless steel and think that this would save The Husband from asking me nearly every day, "Now, where did you put the mail?"

My dear grandmother, Lou Lou, had a train case from the 40's that looked a lot like this. It went with her wherever she went. It was the perfect size for all of her toiletries, jewelry, make-up, and a change of underclothes. I think I want to bring the train case back; it's time has come...again!

  Who ever knew that old fans could be so chic? Or old cameras? Or your grandfather's binoculars? Or your great-grandmother's opera glasses?  I really don't need an excuse to keep anything else, but again, all I can say is WHO KNEW? I guess my grandmother was right when she said, "Don't throw that away...someone will want it one day." The problem was she said that about EVERYTHING!
