Hi lovely Partner!!
If you are stalking me and have made it over to my blog then welcome... it is nice to have you stop a while. Please feel free to take a snoop around at your leisure and learn something about me... I am very excited to have you creating something special for me to treasure!!
Although the first thing that you should probably know about me is that I don't do secrets well (not my own anyway) and the suspense will k.i.l.l me not knowing which of the lovely creations in the pool are for me... all very well having a partner to stalk, but a little weird to be the one to be stalked (if that makes sense).
I have made you a mosaic of inspiration:
Anywhoo.... Things you probably want to know about me:
** I love full, bright, fresh, saturated, fun colours. I especially love them when paired with white, to really show them off. - Plenty of white on white with a splash of colour really does it for me.
** While I like certain elements of the current vintage trend (particularly teapots/teacups & vintage florals)- really and truly deep down I'm a classic or modern styled girl at heart, and like clean lines & freshness.
** I'm really into colour wheels/rainbows of colour at the moment (which you probably can guess from my blog header & mosaic).
** My favourite colours are teal/aqua & pink - but really I just love full colour.
** I'm a pretty girly girl
Options of things that I'd love for you to make for me:
** Nice placemats for my dining room table - although it would be great if these could have like a clear vinyl on the top - otherwise I'd be scared to ruin them. But seriously, don't worry if this is too tall an order!!
** Maybe if you do placemats/kitcheny things then a matching handtowel would be nice.
** A novelty pin cushion - particularly I'd love one to wear on my wrist. Because I don't know about you - but my pins are NEVER where I need them!!
** A cute mini mini bunting to go over my shelves or design wall in my happy place
** Really anything that you have the desire to make me - I'm not that fussy. Especially if you are much more creative than my ideas here LOL... - really, don't feel limited :D
Fabrics I would love:
** Again I'm pretty easily pleased. I'd love something in the rainbow spectrum of colours. And you can never go wrong with dots!!
** Designers I love most at the moment are Michael Miller, Riley Blake, Alexander Henry, Sandi Henderson
** Lines I love most at the moment are Ruby star rising (specifically the teapots/cups), Farmdale (especially the teal one which I don't have), Elizabeth Scott Red Rose Farm and that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
In saying all that I adore many of the Japanese prints - and do not own a single one. So you are completely safe getting those. I also have absolutely no linen in my stash. I love the shot cottons too.
But again - don't feel that you have to limit yourself to this list - it's more just for inspiration.
Hope that helps. Most importantly have fun and thanks SO much in advance!!
