olive goodness, part III and a giveaway

For the past few days,
I have shown you my new pillows,
inspired by the fabric my Mom sent me.

I have also used these fabric as pictures for this IKEA frame:

The middle picture is from the Graphics Fairy.

I used it just above my stove in the remodel kitchen.

Today is an anniversary,
I arrived in the USA 14 years ago!

So to celebrate this special day,
I am giving to one of you some of
my olive fabric, sent from Provence.

These pieces are on the smaller size as they are remnants
of my projects but there are still good olive pictures on them.

I am also including 2 other fabrics from Provence,
but with lavender on them.
These are larger, about 10 inch and the full width.

Here it is all together.
To win:
leave me a comment!
Tell me how you would use it .

It will be opened until August 14
when Miss C. will choose a number
(we are going for hi tech here!)

*giveaway is now closed*
Happy day!

The Graphics Fairy


  1. Number 1! Hope this will be good for me. A part of them will be use for a runner. or to make covers for my appliances. yes, probably covers... I like that!

  2. OK I love this beautiful material. I think I would make pillows or dinner napkins ( -:

  3. I surely love the material, but more than anything I love it after it has been processed by your hands, hahaha. i wish that i could smell the lavander you collected, i just wonder why i never though of doing this when i had beautiful plants. well maybe in the future

  4. My two partners and I make gift baskets that we donate to non-profits. We would love to make a set of placemats and matching napkins. We add the napkin rings, wine and glasses and of course, the goodies.
    Ahh, the good life!

  5. Nicely done! Love Ikea frames too!


  6. Lovely! So perfect for a kitchen! Thanks so much for linking this up to Brag Monday.

  7. I saw you over at the Graphics Fairy, and I just love your olive prints! I also adore the beautiful fabrics, please enter me in your giveaway! I would make little sachets with them & fill with Lavender that I bought on our trip to Paris in May!

  8. Oh my those fabrics are gorgeous... I can see them prettying up the edges of some tea towels for my kitchen...

    thank you for the chance to win them...

  9. See what happens when you go out of town for 2 weeks. You miss out on a giveaway that you would have really really liked to participate in. I would have made a wonderful apron or tote bag.

    And, I think I misspelled Provence in my last comment. oops!


Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
