    You may need someone to go with you… I volunteer!

  2. I have to say, being a woman of (ahem!) mature years, a couple of those are disturbingly similar to some curtains that hung in my home a *number* of years ago. Otherwise, anything that evokes a watercolor feel appeals to me.

  3. Calling all fabric geeks / sewing nerds / home decor enthusiasts. BEHOLD the 40 top fabrics from the Frankfurt Fabric Fair this year. Guess where I want to go in 2015!?!?!? 🙂
