embroidered fabrics….oolala….

July 31, 2009

House Beautiful had a pretty section on embroidered fabrics this month.  I would love a pretty pillow adorned in any of these…maybe a few pillows?  Actually a couple chairs and a sofa with some lovely drapes would be wonderful….

(if I could cover my whole house in this, along with mr. french, b, and myself I would)

have a magical weekend…xo mrs. french

one barn two ways

July 31, 2009

I have a strong love/strongly dislike relationship with my polaroid. I am a perfectionist when it comes to certain things. If a photo of mine does not come out the way I want it the first time, I will take it again hoping for a better result. This is not a fantastic option when it comes to Polaroid photography…film is way too scarce and expensive. However, I can’t stop myself. Which is why I turn to the diptych…victoria’s lovely guest post got me thinking. I put 2 photos together, of the exact same thing and tada! a new way of looking at things. This barn in particular…I actually like them side by side better than when they stand on their own…

I also feel as if this justifies the use of film somehow (I am good at justifying things…hehe)…xo mrs. french

inspirational rug

July 30, 2009

one of the many things I love about my friend, Melissa’s pretty blog is how she shares beautiful ensembles inspired by an image of something she truly loves…I have decided to give it a go…
I was immediately inspired by this image of this magnificent rug (I found it on one of my favorites, seesaw).

I have not been able to get it out of my head…I have decided to use etsy to profess this love…
