French Fruit? Oui!

Hello Friends,

Well, the demolishing of the second bathroom started was so loud I thought the house was falling down. The poor cats didn't know what was going on. Needless to say they hid most of the day. Here they are after the guys left for the day.

So I spent a few hours in the studio working on these...

...pillows that is.

The strawberry was the "test" one and I decided the black was too heavy and not at all what I was looking for. They are medium sized, about 13" x 13". I'm planning on doing a few shows and these will help fill up my space. If you are interested in a fancy french fruit pillow,feel free to email me!

I bought a few new things to paint on, an old wood ironing board top and a shutter with chippy white paint. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with them but I'm having fun thinking about the possibilities. Hopefully it won't be raining tomorrow so I can head to the flea market to score more vintage goodies. Speaking of goodies, check out my sister's Etsy shop, One Cozy Nest. She's been listing the tons of lovely goods we bought on our weekend trip.
Good stuff!!

Thank you for all of the comments regarding our bathroom. My husband was mortified that I posted the before picture but I figured what the heck! If your gonna do it, do it right, right?

I will leave you with a picture of my crazy cat. She's got a thing for sleeping on her face...and paper:) Have a great night!!

Hmmm, I would say spot clean but my sister is going to make a pattern for pillow covers so they will be washable in the future.
I'll let you know!

the pillow tops are perfect and you did just the right thing to get rid of the heavy black stitching. i prefer the orange and the pear!!
