She Wore Blue Velvet

They say you’re not supposed to apologize for not blogging but boy have I missed it ! Sorry for leaving you but it has been crazy busy around here. My sofa got a new outfit and I wanted to share it with you. This fabric was originally for my family room draperies but I decided it would be a much heavier look than I wanted and thought it would be perfect on the sofa in my study.

It was reupholstered in this peacock blue velvet from Greenhouse Fabrics. I decided to leave off the skirt this time and let her little feet show. It looks much less blue and more green in person.

Zoe is just happy to have her sofa back…………..

When I saw this room by Katie Rosenfield Desgin, I knew I was on the right track. What a happy room ! I’m loving the blue/green combo lately.


The new lamp in the foyer came from Tuesday Morning and I added the yellow grosgrain ribbon from the table skirt.

This means that I’m still looking for the family room fabric and the drapery lady has had no draperies for almost a year ! My son says I’ll never make them but I think that’s just his way of getting me to hurry up.

Bold Necklace from Novica

I have been wanting a bold, bright statement necklace for a while so when Novica contacted me about doing a review that’s what I decided to get. NOVICA is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. They work with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. They have thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts, accessories, jewelry and home decor items on their website.


I picked this beautiful hand made necklace by an artisan in Thailand named Nareerat. The blue and magenta colors are so vibrant and gorgeous ! I wore it for date night with Mr. Stiches last weekend. Don’t you love how it coordinates with my umbrella ? Didn’t even plan that…..


If you are looking for gifts for your loved ones or for yourselves they have lots of jewelry, belts, shawls and home d├ęcor items.  I think my favorite part is the beautiful way they come packaged, everything I have gotten from there always comes in a special box. Thank you, Nareerat !
