Last week I had a house full of Ranunculas! These were left over from table arrangements we did for Cirque Le Masque at the Classic Center. Aren't they so bright and cheerful? They are one of my favorite a close 2nd to Peonies. I wish these on the dining room table would've lasted through this weekend for Mother's Day brunch at my house! Unfortunately, I threw out the last of them this morning;( I'll have to start picking, (and posting about) flowers from my own yard to enjoy indoors!

I Spy

I spy some FABULOUS fabric!! When the following 2 pictures from Habitually Chic

were sent to me from a friend I got a little excited! In this post about my rugs, you saw the fabric this headboard is covered in.

Don't you love these dining room chairs? I love this fabric because it's definatly an eye catcher, but also light and airy at the same time. Habitually Chic posted that Laura Ashley makes it and it's also found at Calico Corners. I'm not sure if it's the same print, but it sure looks pretty close! Check out how I used my fabric...I don't think I'll ever get tired of it!

Being the bargain hunter that I am, I'm proud to say I spent very little on the fabric itself. Twice a year in Covington, GA my Mom and I go to this GREAT fabric sale. A lot of it is remnants of designer fabrics, but sometimes you get lucky and find enough yards to do something with it. I thought this fabric was Robert Allen, but I may be mistaken because I've never been able to find it on his website. Stay tuned for a future post just of my fabric finds...
