Living Room Fireplace and Etsy Shop News

Hello friends!  I was so honored to be featured in last week's White Wednesday link party - thank you Kathleen!  It is my favorite place to seek out dreamy white inspiration each week.
For this week's party, I thought I'd share a view of our living room fireplace, with some fall changes surrounding it. 

We had an abundance of hydrangea blooms this year from our 5 bushes, so now I've been drying them.  I love how they fill this white basket (from sweet Karen of A Shabby Moment in Time).

I made two pillow covers out of a vintage grain sack, and placed them on my transformed white chairs for a fall look.  I'm not crazy about the dark red brick on our fireplace (that's for another post), but now I love how these all-white chairs balance it out:

On the shutter (also from Karen) hangs a small angel wings ornament I made.  It is a miniature version of the wings I made in this post

Both sizes of angel wings will be available in my Etsy shop opening soon (hopefully within a few days)! 
In addition to these, I will be introducing the Evelyn and Rose 'Present Pillow Collection'.  These are pillows uniquely wrapped like presents, with fabric bows and seam binding ribbon...



I will also be listing vintage white towels, available for custom monogramming, inspired by the Jeanne D'Arc Living style...

Stay tuned for the shop opening news and enticing giveaways to come...

They have some great things out there to make it easy to get red of the red.
I just adore the chairs flanking the sides :)

I have an idea for your wings.
How about if you use fabric glue instead of sewing. Then, add some ruffled lace over the top to hide the glue?
Just a thought, from someone who does not have time to craft much these days. =)

PS great idea to make the little ones. I'm doing lace butterflies ( much the same look) for my Christmas tree this year.

You are so very welcome Susan and I'm glad I found you and your blog. Can't wait tosee what you will have to offer in your shop. Those angel wings are so dreamy:-)

Love the chairs by the fireplace. I have a small area of brick showing, but most is covered by my mantel.....that's an idea!

I've been hoping you'd open an Etsy shop and now....YIPPEEE. And I, too, have a red brick fireplace so I'm real curious to see what you do with yours.

Waiting on the edge of my seat for your shop opening! You have lovely unique things and I can't wait to find that special something I JUST KNOW I won't be able to live without. Those little angel wings are precious!!! I'm hoping to open my shop soon also...we'll see!
