Just some random things that don’t warrant a post on their own today.  Now that the sunroom has been painted {SW Interactive Cream}, while I was in Hobby Lobby I decided to look at some fabric for window treatments.  I saw two I liked; one was a toile called Vauxhill  Java by Covington, a linen that had a tan background {not the dark brown shown here, but it apparently comes in a few colors}.


And this one called Covington Siena.  They actually had a couple of small swatches pinned to the bolt, so I took two for a little bigger view.  Below it is on our sectional.


It is a linen and I really love the pattern.  I think my hubby is probably all toiled out, so I don’t think I could do that to him.  I think this pretty floral would work well though.  The picture below shows it on a chair that is a shade darker than the sectional.  So it seems to work with the colors in the room.


I also received a sign I ordered from Paula at Castle and Cottage.  I ordered this sign for the guest bedroom and will hang it over the bed once I get the headboard.  Such a great size and Paula does a beautiful job.


Finally, I added a few new things to my Etsy shop. 





I have one adult size apron left, too, {added two of those last week} but just picked up another white one while at Hobby Lobby, so I’ll be adding that soon. 


Speaking of Etsy, please welcome the Etsy shop of   No Minimalist Here as one of my sponsors.  Sherry’s button is over on my sidebar and I hope that you will visit her shop {after you visit mine, of course!}.

My current giveaway is from PrintRunner for 250 business cards! Ends June 11, 2012.

Kathy, I am not sure about you, but it takes me a while to choose fabrics....I am so indecisive when there are so many beautiful patterns out there now to choose from....I am sure that you will pick the perfect one!
They are both beautiful...
Have a great day!

Love that floral fabric. Of course I love the toile, too. I have one of Paula's signs too in my dining room. Bought it before I started blogging.

Hi Kathy,

I love both fabrics. The Covington Siena would be beautiful in your sunroom.

Your new sign in beautiful! I love the shape of it and the crown.

Your Etsy shop treasures are very pretty.

Hi Kathy, I have to tell you I think we were at the antique market the same day! I held the egg basket in my hands for some time. It's a beauty, and you have made it even more so! I love your bathroom! I also got a giggle from the Kids and sticky floors sign. Both of these fabrics are so beautiful! It would be hard to choose. Looking forward to the finished area. Have a great weekend! Elizabeth
