Pretty, Pretty Fabric on Friday Pretties


One afternoon,
perusing the on-line fabric stores,
I came across a sale.
Oh Yey!!!
So, I put a couple of items in my cart.
It was a better deal to buy a certain amount-
you know that Free Shipping amount?
And,
Presto-
Fabric is on its way!
Oh, the Thrill when it arrives!!!
I really do believe two things-

1. Presentation matters

2. It's the little things that matter,
like a sweet Thank you.

The fabric is
Sandi Henderson's
Meadowsweet Designer Surprise
&
Amy Butler's Daisy Chain


Next are a couple of things
that I picked up when I was visiting my Sis.
She has so many cute, little, amazing shops
in her little town.
This is some wonderful vintage fabric
that I had bought before and was almost out of.
I LOVE IT!!!
I was so happy to find some more.

In the same shop were
these vintage pom-poms and fringe.
So Mine!!!


And this little 70's beauty
is a big round table cloth.
How cute will that be outside?
Make sure that you hop around
to all of the wonderful Blogs that are part of
Friday Pretties!!!

Another Pretty that is worth taking a look at is
She writes about a beautiful
experience that happen to her.
It just touched my heart.

Well Greeting to you my dear.
I love vintage fabric...and used to make quilts with it, backing them with old linen table clothes...but alas no time...I just recently passed on my collection to Mrs Cupcake and Dawn from "love, Balance, Peace..."
Speaking of which...WOW...that sweet one can write!...what a touching post
HEY...Happy Friday Dearest!...Thanks for have us all over to your weekly party...Smile On...Rosie

Hi Joyce, what lovely fabric - I'm a fan of Amy Butler.I just love the pom pom fringe too, I'd love to decorate a cushion with some pom poms - they look very sweet!
Have a lovely weekend!!

Maria said...

Good Morning Joyce!
Thanks for hosting Pretties!
I had the same idea last night and also posted about fabric!

The fringe on the tablecloth is sooooo perfect... I never think to realllly spruce up a tablecloth like that... So often I've bought fabric and used it for a tablecloth...but I never "doll up" the ends!

Fabulous! and PRETTY!
Have a wonderful weekend... enjoy your sistertime! It is a precious gift ♥

Good morning Joyce,
I had a large cabinet of chenille, floral prints from the 50's and up,some upholstery fab, and even some bark cloth.
Just a mess of pieces that I always though I would use and never did.

Becky and I went for lunch at the most charming little general store/cafe yesterday...ahhhh....so nice.

Well dear one, have a happy weekend...love Rosie

This is my first visit to your beautiful blog and I really enjoyed the time I spent here and on your sister's blog. I am a mother of three daughters so I enjoyed visiting with a mother of three boys. Your vintage fabrics are so pretty! I would be excited to own fabrics like those. I look forward to visiting again.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Hi Joyce!
I've been traveling
and have NOT had
good internet or
I'd have hopped over
here, sooner!!!
Love your blog and
I have been reading
some of your past
posts....Congrats
on the big 26! I
will be celebrating
24 with my hubby in
September : ) so I
could really identify
with your wedding
photos! And you both
still look very young
and beautiful. I
have seen Friday Pretties
around the blogosphere
and one of these days,
I'll join in, too.
Your fabrics are really,
really lovely; I hope
you'll reveal what you
create with them!
xx Suzanne
PS: I love the picture
of your dog...

Adorable! Don't you love that extra little touch? It really makes a difference, that's why I prefer small businesses and Etsy shops! Lovely finds, Joyce, can't wait to see what you do with them, loving the vintage pretties! XX!
