Ikat Get Enough

I was perusing Gilt today and saw more examples of my ikat fabric really getting around! (Ok, I'm not really laying claim to the fabric, but I like my swatch of it.)

Jamie Young Raj Pendant

After I bought a sample of the fabric I used it for a pillow (now it's moved to my bed) and later saw the fabric used as a schmancy duvet (at the end of that post).

This makes me think of ideas for covering a cheapy cylindrical lampshade I picked up at Goodwill...another Calico Corners sample could be in my future.

Not Quite Ready for Reality

So many fun trips, so little blog updating! I've been completing (well, mostly just starting) some home updates in between some great vacations...and I've been terrible and keeping up with posts. Here are some photos of things that have been going on at home and away...

Sprucing up some Goodwill finds

Inexpensive update to the foyer

Flowers in Whistler (that look like the trees in the Lorax!)

More details to follow! Has anyone else been getting out of town and beating the heat?
