Retro Rooms ~ check it out!!

Beautiful girly room, i just love this

Cowboys for the boys

I have been lucky enough to have some of my fabrics featured on the Retro Rooms blog.

The lovely carmen, based in Sydney has some beautiful childrens rooms designed in retro themes, they are absolutely gorgeous.

I have included some of her rooms below and a link, so be sure to pop over and say hello and take a look at these rooms. There is something to suit every child. My boys dont want themed rooms any more, just loads of posters, so its nice to look and drool, maybe one day i can treat the grandchildren, a bit of a wait though.

Anyway pop over and have a look at retro rooms and retro rooms blog.

Each piece of Oilcloth measures 55cm x 50cm and is enough to make a kiddies apron, tote bag, cover a stool top, make a mouse mat, placemats, lunch bag, bunting flags, whatever you like or just add it to your stash and take a look from time to time.

The Mexican oilcloth is also available to buy online at my store at $25.50 per metre. They make gorgeous tablecloths, the trouble is deciding which design to have.

Marimekko fabric printing..........

I found this pic, it just amazes me, the endess line of Marimekko fabric drying, in this fantastic long length of fabric disappearing into the distance, it actually goes on further than this pic, i cut a piece off the pic to get the best bits in.

I adore this colour too, the colours are just so bright and stunning. Imagine working in the Marimekko factory, just drooling all day long at the vibrant colours and designs. Love It!! Love It!!

Happy drooling!!
