 The soft mauve velvet, antique settee with the beautiful faux finish walls feels just right. Courtesy of MadeByGirl(her blog is fantastic by the way), here are some great interior photography work by Virgina MacDonald.  You don’t really see barstools at the main kitchen counter top, but I really like it.  If your kitchen doesn’t have space for an island, this is the best possible compromise to create seating space in…

Felt Makes Me Happy

I’m not sure why I fell asleep last night thinking about felt but I did. I guess it started when I got the bright idea to attempt making some felt toys/dolls for my daughter. I’m sure I can pull it off….. Right? So, today I checked out Etsy to see what other felt creations people come up with and I am even more inspired to give felt-y crafts a go.…
