I Bought It-Stashed It-Forgor It

Geeeezzzz!!!  Are you like me, you buy something, stash it somewhere and then forget it.  My ORC Closet Makeover has me purging and cleaning every nook, cranny and space in my house.  I have found some really fun forgotten treasures.

Way before Christmas I was at my favorite fabric store and bought the whole display they had set up.  I loved all three of these fabrics.  I think the combination is gorgeous.

This Banana Leaf or Palm Leaf as it is sometimes called has been popular for a while, and I had been looking for some.  I love this one, such pretty deep green colors.

 This print has so much character.  This fabric was on a gorgeous wing back chair in the display, but I think it will also make a fabulous pillow.  I love to have a large print or pattern in a room, it always adds great drama.

It's funny, I'm not really a pink person, but this Raspberry color really caught my eye.

 Who couldn't use one more black and white print.  I fell in love with this one too.

 Now you know that I love black and glitzy gold, so when I found this black and gold metallic pillow at Hobby Lobby, I knew it would be perfect for my home.  Half price at $13 dollars had it jumping in my basket immediately.

Well, since these have all been stashed away for months, they seem like new treasures to me.  Now I just need to get busy and start sewing.  The wheels are turning.

Here are a few spaces that are fabulous inspiration rooms.  
She uses this fabulous Raspberry color so beautifully.

and look at this fabulous room by Sunny Days & Starry Nights. The Raspberry pillow is the star of the show and I adore the print too.

  1. Beautiful lost fabrics, now found. I've been crushing on Anita's pink decor, too. I'm looking forward to seeing your new pillows.

  2. Marty, yes--I do the same thing. A flat piece of fabric just lends itself to being tucked away, doesn't it? But it is so much fun to uncover the buried treasure! Your color combinations are beautiful, and the addition of black/white is genius. Can't wait to see your pillows.

  3. Marty,
    What pretty lost and now found fabrics. I cannot wait to see these made into pretty pillows. Have a great week end.

  4. Really unusual fabric. I can see all this fabric made into something beautiful. I am a fabric hoarder(did I spell that right?). I buy fabric without even knowing what I will make. I need to go through my stash and see what hidden treasures I have. I'll check back to see what wonderful things you make.

  5. I like all of your fabrics! I lose things in my house too. Ha! Recently I found a few yards of white satin that I bought for decor at daughter's wedding. She was married 2 years ago. Now I am wondering what to do with the satin! Ha!

  6. I love your new fabrics, Marty. They remind me of Dorothy Draper's (now Carleton Varney's) Greenbrier colors!
