Care for a Tour?

While the truth is, magic happens all over this house (blink, plink, tada!), it occurred to me that you might be tossing and turning in bed late at night wondering "where o' where does that textile goodness come from?"  I know I've been doing some tossing, but I think that may be due to the medical minipause my 30 year old system is currently undergoing.  And if you've not loss any sleep over it whatsoever, well, that's probably in your best interest BUT I thought I might give you a peek into this little corner of my life [which also moonlights as our guest bedroom should you come for dinner and feel a bit tipsy afterwards].

Which brings me right to a very exciting announcement:
[ba ba boom boom boom]
I'll be reopening the textile shop of wonders and delights on Monday September 6th after a looooooooong hiatus!  I'll be offering up a bloggy preview right here before the webular doors swing wide SO on that note... it's back to the studio for me!

I like to add that I love the light room, the colors, the one who is stitching away... : )

I was with the curious bunch, thanks for the peek :) Have a lovely weekend and what a better way to begin the week than with some of those lovely items? I cannot think of one!

I want to come to dinner and be too tipsy to go home - for a weekend, methinks.

My bank card is on the ready for your re-opening! I do believe there is a quaint little quail pillow with my name on it!

When I grow up I wish to have a desk as clean and organized as yours.

I feel a custom order coming on...for my new home, when and if it ever reveals itself.

Glad, so glad, to have you back.

And for the record, I want to die and go to heaven in that room. Restorative is an understatement.

Yay for the shop reopening!!!

And the room is to die for.
Love to you Ms Umber :)

I love your space, I love it. I want to sit there for hours and take in the levels of light, feel the fabrics that you have stored up to create with, look carefully at your collected images and photographs. I love how we nest a space to create in, and it changes over time... but this is beautiful.

And oh how much I have wanted one of your glorious pillows!

You astound me. You really ought to be in bed like a normal jane, and here you are reopening a fabulous shop.

Michele said...

Oh rocks, where are the rocks, I really need a Kelly rock for my most special of collections...

Trista Anodei said...

You may well see me buying that last pillow on opening day. Fair warning.

Glad to see you up and at it :)

Jaime/Bella-Bijou Jewellery said...
