Feathering Your Nest - It's a Tough Job but Somebody has to do it!

Thought I would share some of my adventures in decorating this week.

Feeling inspired by all the great spring images in recent blog posts and the warm temps at my Minnesota cottage, I headed out in search of ways to freshen up my Forever Cottage.

First stop, a mega-fabric-emporium! I had heard this no-frills, hit or miss, inexpensive (cheap) fabric store existed but had not had the need to visit until this week.

Well, I think I spent the first 15 minutes of my visit just walking around in a daze with my mouth wide open. It is hard to know where to even start looking. There were bolts of fabric EVERYWHERE, much of it upholstery and decorator fabric. I had to take pictures to share with all of you.

Would you believe that all I was looking for was white cotton/linen to slipcover my couch? I am not kidding!

I am happy to report I found the perfect white denim for $4.99 a yard! Joe, the slipcover guy will make me a fantastic white slipcover for my living room couch - perfect for spring/summer! There will be no do-it yourself slipcover for me - I am impressed by all of you in blogland who can do it - but I know my limits.

Today, I headed to a small Minnesota town for my favorite monthly occasional sale. Well, the l-o-n-g Minnesota winter and recent warm temps certainly inspired other seekers out too. Here is the crowd, lined up before the doors opened! I was shocked.

Needless to say, there was a crush of women, grabbing for all things chippy, corbels, bunny statues, watering cans ec... All the best "junk" went quick! I was in no mood for this sort of flea-tiquing but was amused by the shenanigans nonetheless! You would have thought they were giving free botox injections!

  2. Wow all that fabric... Amazing!

    Sounds like the occasional sale went well... I hope you at least were able to grab up some of your own wood corbels and bunny statues among the chaos!


  3. I am with you! It is amazing the draw Rose still has, my favorite is Theresa at the Porch.

    It was fun to find you at The Lettered Cottage, and I am enjoying reading your blog.
