Craving a little color

Signs of spring have me craving a little color. Check out this 2009 Southern Living Idea House designed by Tracery Interiors. This fresh approach to interior design makes the perfect family beach escape. Cheerful and colorful....wish I was there!!

Flower Power

Last year, I started a flower pin business called Felt Happy. It was created by my desire to recycle vintage wool sweaters. Over the years, I had collected sweaters that were accidentally shrunk in the wash (according to my husband), missing a few buttons or just worn from wear. I did a little research on felting (shrinking wool to a more dense fiber) and Felt Happy was born. To my surprise, these Felt Happy flower pins have really started selling...mostly, in the store because I have not mastered the art of marketing on Etsy yet. Who knew that a little flower pin would become so popular!

New kids on the blog (and in the store too!)

I have finally added new furniture additions to the store. Both of these "new kids" are vintage (1970-80s) french provincial pieces with original hardware. They are currently for sale in Blacklion (spaces 370 & 360).
