Skirts And Ruffles

A skirt to hide things away. Clipping file images for you to enjoy.

My kitchen

The 28 inch deep ruffle always looks so glam.

Vanities and night tables are skirt worthy.

Happy Sunday!

Hello my Patchouli friend,
Great post as I love a skirt that hides a thousand things! Happy Sunday to you too, xv
P.S I would love to be able to test those scents that you mentioned in your New Orleans store - they sound fab.

Hi Annabelle,
I used to collect antique white ironstone, pitchers and tureens, and a few bowls, salt cellers, platters, and odds and ends. But I'm out of space ha ha, so I haven't acquired anything for awhile.

Vicki I would love to show you Hove here in New Orleans! Your educated nose would love it.

Love your cuisine and those 28" skirts. Now I guess I'm going to have to change my bed linens after these photos.

My own sink is skirted. Such a softer look in the kitchen. I'm thinking of changing out the fabric to update the look. It's a little too country for my taste these days, and I'd like to go more Swedish neutral.
Great images, Valerie.

Ooo, Ms. Valorie! That's a yummy group of pics! I've been sewing for about 38 years, which means I also have a 38 year old weakness for fabric. I love it but have gotten out of the habit due to the ruffle/layer/balloon overkill in the 80's and due to the fact that I live on a dusty acre in a windy town. So more fabric = more dirt = more house cleaning. I've no cattle, but do have two frisky cattledogs who bring in a fresh batch of dust several times a day. Anyhoo (as you say), your pics were muy inspiring and I could be ready to deal with the dirt and bring the textiles back. And (dare I say it?) that first image with the flat-paneled print really flips my skirt!

Carey said...

p.s. I also recognize your charming kitchen with its elegance and whimsy.
