March 19, 2010 fabric friday - umbrella tops by riley blake designs

We recently received our shipment of the fabulous and fun Rainy Days and Mondays line from Riley Blake and as soon as I pulled the bolts from the box, I immediately thought Fun Fabric Friday!  All the prints are fun and clever, but today we're showcasing Umbrella Tops.  From a distance, this print just looks kind of random...different color circles in, well, random placements.  But if you look a little closer, and think about the name, it's obvious that they're umbrella tops.  Think aerial view.  And that's what is so fun about it!  Imagine you're in a big city and you're looking down from high up in a skyscaper to see yellow and green and pink umbrellas instead of boring black.  Imagine if we all had such bright and cheery umbrellas...maybe those rainy days wouldn't seem quite so bad.

Head over to the shop and check out Umbrella Tops and the other coordinating Rainy Days prints!

See you in the shop!

...happy st. patty's day (sale)!

We're celebrating our Irish roots with a St. Patty's Day sale!  We have some fabulous green fabrics from Joel Dewberry's Deer Valley collection that just scream Spring (and luck of the Irish!) and we've marked them down to $6.50/yd for TODAY ONLY!  That's $1.25 off per yard!!

We had to enjoy our Patty's Day dinner a day early this year due to a prior engagement tonight, but it was still amazing!  I modified a new Beef and Guinness Stew recipe...and it's the best stew I've made yet.  Plus a new Colcannon recipe where I used kale instead of regular cabbage and of course, I made soda bread - yum!  A very hearty meal that took 4 hours to prepare and only 15 minutes to eat! 

It may not be "pretty" food, but it was good!

What do you do to celebrate the day?  Are you actually Irish, or just pretend to be one for the day?! ;)  I must say I'm proud of my Irish heritage and have always loved that even those who aren't Irish enjoy celebrating this day too!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from us to you with an old Irish blessing!

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
