SHOW TIME! Headin South!

I’ve been off the road for almost 3 years now staying busy with my growing and changing business, plus a couple house photo shoots etc. It’s time for me to hit the road again doing some select shows. Join me in Lebanon, TN just outside of Nashville for The Country Living Magazine Fair April 24-26! Follow me here on instagram as I pack it up and move it out! This’ll give you a little sneak peek into my booth and what I’m bringing! My booth will be a colorful explosion of artgoodies and vintagegoodies! Really it will be your textile HQ with artgoodies towels, pillows, zippered pouches, aprons. PLUS vintage pillows I whipped up, tons of vintage tablecloths (I lost count, 70 plus at this point). Vintage housewares galore including Pyrex, trays, and a few other of your favorite surprises.

Here’s a little mid century loveseat I recovered for my new vintage fabric pillows! I used remnants from my artgoodies pillows and aprons to create these one of a kind beauties!

Color of the Month April 2015!

April showers bring May flowers! Spring! My favorite time of year as plants start to emerge, rummage sales fire up, the cottage opens back up, and the weather starts to warm! Plus April means a flurry of birthdays and my parents anniversary so there are extra things to celebrate!

Color of the Month!

  • Orange you glad it’s almost Spring! I know I am! Daylight savings is just around the corner but it’s hard to believe as the snow and cold linger on. Give me sunshine, fresh air, plants, gardening, the farmers market, and rummage sales! It’s pretty obvious that I need color in my life and the gray  days, white snow, and stick trees aren’t cutting it. With that I give you March’s color of the month. Mostly orange with a little help from some cheery yellow and green friends.

More NEW throw pillows!

If you’re a friend or a fan you probably already know how much I love a beach vacation. The kind that involves meandering around state parks, antique shops, and investigating shells and all the amazing creatures that wash up on shore. I’ve explored hundreds of miles of coastline, particularly in Florida. The only area that I really haven’t been to is The Everglades National Park. Yep, that’s a lot of Florida coast. Sanibel Island still remains one of my favorite places. The beaches look like dump trucks backed up and poured out shells there are so many. And the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge is an extraordinary place to do some bird watching. I pretty much wish I was there right now freeing myself from this frigid cold. Anyway, I created some shell tea towels last year in honor of these times, and once again I felt compelled to bring you another beachy nautical product with a couple of these NEW 16×16 pillows! Available here in coastal coral and nautical navy! Perfect for your home, cottage, or if you’re just feeling shell-shocked by the brutally cold winter like me. blog 16x16 coral shells blog 16x16 navy shells blog 1616 stacked shells

Color of the Month February 2015!

February?!  Wow, ok, so 2015 is already off to a quick start. I’ve been trying to pace myself with work which is really hard for me to do. However, the lack of sunshine helps when it comes to lounging about working on new products (more coming soon) and napping. I think I’m caught up on my sleep from the busy holiday, finally. Speaking of sunshine, yellow seemed like the most appropriate color during this gray blah thing we call winter. Here it is, color of the month February 2015!

NEW designs!

I think a lot about the idea of home.  There are so many ideas and thoughts and behaviors surrounding each “home”, I could go on for days. Instead of rambling about all that, I offer you artgoodies Brand NEW house tea towel! Plus, my green thumb has been twiddling away waiting for this new plant design. I once heard you should never trust a person who doesn’t have any houseplants, ponder that. blog square houseblog square plant
