Well hello there. I have had the very bittersweet task of sending my triplets to preschool. It has worked out swell so far. In fact I can now see how it may be possible to get a few projects done this next year. One of the first ones that I would like to mark off the list is one of the upholstered headboards for their room. I've had my eye on diagonal stripes for a while now..kind of like the blue and white upholstered piece above. I also LOVE Grace's curtains that she made for her little Harper's room. Do you like? Speaking of liking..do you think you can still like me even though I was a "no go" blogger for a bit??? I still really like all of you.

Oh and I realize the top clutch really does not have any true diagonal stripes but isn't lovely. Also the pillow came from here..(Christine told me so..it may be sold out but I'm thinking about requesting a custom order because of the greatness found in them)

No worries about being "no go" for awhile, especially when you show up with images like these! (I used that velvet sofa one last week, too - yum!)
I'm with ya though, on these diagonal stripes. They're really speaking my name. Bought a pillow last week for starters, but now I'm really thinking about those curtains!

What a fun morning surprise to see you blogging AND to see H's drapes! I am so guilty of blogging fail. I haven't blogged in over a month:( You've given me some motivation though so thank you C! Have a wonderful week my friend! xoxo

I've been obsessed with the idea of making my own version of that black-white-gold pillow. I like stripes straight on and on the diagonal.

How exciting for your boys! It will be a great new adventure for them and for you. :)

Nice! I'm liking how modern that can look. BTW, I've got a stencil giveaway going on right now at nesteaglerock.com.... not that you actually need stencils to create a striped wall ;)

oooh, can't wait to see the headboards! I am a lover of stripes too, even the horizontal kind that I know I shouldn't be wearing :) Happy preschool days to your boys! So very exciting!!!

LOVE diagonal stripes and I'm with you...considering a custom request on those amazeballs cushions- it's the rust velvet I think that makes them so yummy. Gorgeous post and thank you for the mention:) xo

It happens girl! I find I take a blogging hiatus at least once a year. You need to to stay fresh.
And preschool rocks. My youngest started his first year last year, and I can't wait for September 6th!!! Those 2.5 hours are lifesavers! I sound like such a bad mom.
Oh, and my boys have been hooked on your microwave popcorn all summer. Thanks!
(And I love the stripes)

I've been meaning to pin that sofa photo and am officially doing it. Already have that foyer in my files. Love diagonal stripes and can't wait to see what you do with those headboards!

I almost bought those pillows! I love the look of diagonal stripes lately, as opposed to zig zag.
