that is actually an ordeal of a story. i saw a clear-ish shower curtain with the teeth on urbanoutfitters.com a few years ago. (they had to quit selling it [copyright infringment]). I found the original creator (princess tina) and was surprised that this print was issued to alexander henry fabric. so i searched and searched and searched and finally found it on ebay. and its appropriately named 'smile'.

Awesome!! I have some of your owls' long-lost twins and relatives. One day I walked into a thrift shop and acquired TONS of owls--$35 worth--someone else must have unloaded their collection, so I happily absorbed them into mine. I covet your mushrooms too....and the toothy shower curtain...and the cute table w/coordinating s&p shakers(?)...and all the rest...!! Sweet colors too. The blue/orange/brown/sage in your bedroom is rad.

I LOVE your living room wall with all the pictures and paintings, and I really, REALLY love your kitchen table and chairs.  Those are so hard to find unless you pay a zillion dollars.

I saw something in an art book once, where someone had taken a large collection of those latch-hook rugs that were usually made from kits in the 1970's I think, and they stitched them all together and made a big patchwork living room rug out of it and it was awesome!  That kind of thing would look good in your house.

I love the words on your fridge - they look like they were cut out of magazines - are they on magnets?

I have a green version of your kitchen table - it was my in-laws and my husband grew up with it! They also have a red one!

Great job!

I love your place!! The colors in your craft room are how I want to do my whole house. I love the art over your sewing machine. Are the desk drawers painted? Your living room wall is my idea of heaven. I have deep love of thrift store art that all others I know seem to hate. The kitchen table and chairs is to die for. What a gem! Did you make your shower curtain? I love the design.

I am envious, awed, and amazed. Can I move in with you?  Wink

Your apartment is great, and I love the table with the fleur de lis!  My husband and I used to live in Old Louisville, and I LOVED our apartment!  (I also loved that we lived a block from Mag Bar, which was our favorite bar in the area). 

Now we live in Mississippi.  We see fleur de lis everywhere because of the Saints.  We aren't big sports people, so it always just means Louisville to us.  Smiley
