Double Take.




Good Monday Morning All.  A little bit of an emotional morning, just dropped my girl off at her first day of 1st grade!  Really, time flys. SIGH:)

Now, there are no excuses for not blogging, I have all the time in the world, right?

Since I woke up at the crack of dawn, and already had most things done (ie lunch packed, breakfast made) and the kids hadn't woken up yet.  I had a couple minutes to myself.  So, what does a girl do with a couple extra minutes, she opens the closest Design mag she has....the July/August issue of House Beautiful.  As I was flipping through I came to one of my ALL time FAVORITE rooms in magazine.  The Nick Olson Studio Apartment.  Now, that green just takes the cake.  I LOVE everything about this room. 

But there was something just a little different when I flipped through, that I had a Double Take moment.

Everything about this room is beautiful.  I Want curtains, pleated like that.

The fabric on the headboard and dust ruffle...it reminded me of something, something that has been sitting in the back of the car since our trip to DC.  A roll of vintage hand printed fabric that I scored for $20 at that estate sale in Georgetown.  I KNEW i was drawn to it for a reason.


I quickly looked at the source...Schumacher Hong Kong Fabric, but mine says


So, the question is this.  "Is this the original vintage fabric?"  It doesn't say Schumacher anywhere on the fabric...it says Patterson Fabric.  And the printing is obviously Hand Printed....and just gorgeous. 

So, needless to say, I am tickled that I have this fabric.  And feel extra special, I may have something original that Schumacher re-printed.  So, the question now is..."where in the world will I use it?"

Happy Monday.

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is catch up on my magazines. This is one of my favorites. That green is perfect. And that is one great fabric you picked up.

First Grade!! My little guy will also be starting First Grade after Labor Day (one thing I like about the Northeast...later school starts), although I'm struggling to get things done with little boys running in and out of the house all day!

The fabric is fab....and I love that you have the original. Have fun deciding where to use it!!
