this post brought to you by cat vomit and the color green

so green could mean many beautiful things and in this case it partly does..

but if you live in the southeast it more than likely, for you, means the color of your boogers.

but maybe more like yellow with a tinge of green.

too much?


it's monday and i woke up to a huge pile of cat vomit on my suzani upholstered chairs...

which means you have to undure it to some degree too.


good news though,

fiona's room is so so close to completion and it's gonna be good.

the desk is here and it looks like it was born to be in the room.

but it needs to be painted.

the color is a little different than most people would choose for a little girl's desk or any desk for that matter.

but my thinking is the room is so girly already with the purple walls and the designers guild orangerie floral explosion headboard that it needs a little muted moodiness. 

here's the idea:

that's the desk that the paint cards are sitting on and that's the hardware that is already on the desk.

there is a little bench that is going to be upholstered in this:

faux ostrich vinyl.

in hot pink.


i'm dying over it.


here is a close up of the upholstery fabric:


lot's of that olive green roaming around.


i am going to pick up a sample of the green today.


then all i need is the bedskirt (which should be here this week)


then i need to take pictures.

(jesus take the wheel)



nature's miracle is the best for cleaning cat vomit.

and the neti pot is the best for cleaning pollen vomit. 






some of you'ns asked me where i found such a rich, saturated quality velvet..

well, it's schumacher.

the good news is it's discounted.

the bad news is it's still 105 dollars a yard.


if you haven't been to inside fabric dot com you need to cuz there's a lot of amazing fabric at a discounted rate.



the schumacher velvets come in every color under the sun.

the velvet page reads like a paint deck.

speaking of paint decks.

nicole at sketch 42 tells me that i need to use plain black on my french doors bc

anything else will look like poopstains (my words).  

(she said something about "dirty denim" but all i heard was "poopstain")

newell turner tells me i need to use high gloss.

i was going to anyway but it's fun to say outloud to the universe that newell turner gives me advice.


ok...back to the velvets.

look at some of the colors..








mmmmm.....couldn't you just die??!

go here to see all the colors.
