I’ve Never Felt This Way Before

…about a piece of fabric. Kristen  and I swapped one my pendants for some of her handprinted fabric. I’ve admired her work through her blog and shop, but I’ve never actually seen it up close or held it in my hands. When I opened the package I was thrilled and overcome in that "Ah! I LOVE this!" sort of way. I know it sounds a little odd, but I’ve never owned a piece of fabric that I completely and whole-heartedly loved and thought was so my taste and style. Kristen designs the fabric herself and then has it printed. Take a look for yourself….

Tomorrow I hope to post some of my leftovers from the "Holy Cow Festival" I participated in this weekend at this beautiful church–pendants (some new) and some tissue holders.

And before I forget, several people have asked me for updates on Dolly and Sunshine. We kept Dolly for a few more days. It is so much work taking care of a newborn kitten. She wasn’t eating much and I was getting worried about the state of her health. So we took her to the shelter and the main caretaker took her home to continue her care. It’s good to know someone with a little more know-how will be caring for her.

And Sunshine is thriving. She is getting a little tamer every day and loves to run and skip and jump behind the girls. We let her out every evening after her bedtime feeding. The girls run up and down the hill to the barn and she chases them, until finally she gets too tired and wanders back into her stall.

  1. That is beautiful, beautiful fabric. I’m looking to fall in love with something like that soon– dating around for some stuff for my walls.

    The lamb and the girls reminds me so much of a Little Golden Book (paperback) that I had when I was little… The Little Lamb? Or something. It was my favorite. All photos of a little girl raising a lamb– taking him to a birthday party, playing in the grass… All in the loveliest 70s get-ups.

  2. Molly, that fabric is just gorgeous! i know why you love it so, its really beautiful. What in the world will you do with it, besides frame it??? I am wearing my necklace right now, I can’t tell you how I love it. xo

  3. I have some fabric that I love too Molly and I just don’t want to cut it. But I’m going to have to sooner or later!

    Yay for Sunshine! I think you made the right decision about Dolly. Don’t the girls look adorable playing with their little friend?
