Bloggers are Nice



Remember when I let Cricket pick out fabric for her room? One of my favorites was that orange and white fabric in the middle of the bottom row.

I first spotted it in Elle Decor. The article said the duvet cover came from West Elm. I searched high and low and couldn't find it.

Then I got an e-mail from Paula.

You know her as the talented blogger from Two Ellie. She said the duvet was from Pottery Barn (not West Elm) and she had used it for a project in her son's room. Not only that, but she had some left over..would I like it? Are you kidding? I was thrilled. She would not let me pay her and mailed it out right away. Bloggers are nice. Really nice.

Cricket and I both loved the print, but in the end, she choose something different. But I loved the fabric so much I had to use it somewhere....


I am now working on a project for Butterball's room. Here is a sneak peak. I just hope my ADD doesn't kick in before I finish.

A big thank you to Paula!! If you have been living under a rock and haven't seen her blog check it out: Two Ellie. She has also just become the official blogger for French Market & Antiques. Check out the new blog at Mrs. French.

  2. I truly hope that the kindness of bloggers makes the world a better place...it has to rub off somehow, at least I feel it has on me.
    My Father always told me one good deed deserves another.
    Love to see what you have done! Sweet fabrics.

    p.s. I'm going to post a photo of my son on my blog soon (demolishing a fireplace!) and am wracking my brain trying to come up with as good a nickname for him as "Butterball"!!!! You have really raised the nickname bar and I am not coming up with any nicknames remotely in that league! Maybe I'll just call him "son" till inspiration strikes me!
