Hey There!

Is this the most beautiful Armoire you have seen? I spotted it at the always inspiring Lonny mag, which is a good thing I am inspired because tomorrow I plan on spending the whole day on lock down in there, music on, head down sewing.

The basket of vintage linens is calling again and now that all of my orders are caught up on I can sew without a worry, which is when I usually create the best sellers! =0)
And, I can also make up some more Christmas stockings with my stash of red fabrics.

By the way, I have switched rooms (again) and am making my office in our other living room as it is not being used...well, that and the fact that the room is huge, there are white floorboards in there, fireplace, and most of my sewing things as well. I know, when will I settle on a room?! Maybe if we get a caravan or convert our outdoor room that might happen - and that's a whole other post ;0)

I do plan on having copious amounts of coffee and a sit in my adorable white slip covered wing back chair in between all this too

...'cause now my favourite chair is right next to my sewing machine.

Does it get any better?
BTW- stop by and say Hi to Ginger, who has just started a brand new blog. Ginger has been so kind to write a lovely post about my home and even interviewed me. This blog is going to be all about fave!
have a great weekend all =0)

  1. I love old linen! And christmas stockings from old linen are so beautiful!
    Have a wonderful weekend,

  2. Ness, you are so incredibly inspiring! I always look forward to seeing what you are making next!
    Have a fabulous weekend and hope you are enjoying some gorgeous weather,

  3. That would get me inspired too! So beautiful! On my way to your friends blog! Have a great weekend :)

  4. That is truly a gorgeous armoire!

  5. Ness,
    You do create beautiful things....I'm going to order that pillow I want soon...I love that armoire, it is incredible!!! I will stop by Ginger's blog, I know all about being new!


  6. I really love your photos. They give a tantalising glimpse into your life!

  7. I love lock-down days, don't you?
    My husband is going to be out of town this weekend, and that's exactly what Edward and I have planned.
    Total Christmas Lock-down!!

  8. Sounds wonderful - there's nothing like a special work area to oneself - the caravan idea sounds great. The antique linens look gorgeous too - if only I had the talent to sew myself!

    By the way -I LOVE armoires - I would have one in every room if I could, for linen, china, as a hanging closet and an open shelved one for my girls room...LOVE THEM! Have a happy and productive weekend. xx

  9. Your new sewing room sounds nice, Ness. White floorboards, wonderful. I can't wait to see what you create. Those linens looks gorgeous. I have my eye on a pillow and hopefully can buy it soon!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  10. Ness, it sounds like the PERFECT day to me:) ENJOY lovely, I cannot wait to see what you create. Hugs for a wonderful weekend ~ Txx

  11. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. Are there any window coverings that would match with this white decor? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

  12. Your sewing room sounds like such a lovely place. I'm so glad that you have a stash of vintage linens and fabrics to choose from, there is nothing better.
