I attended the antiques fair this weekend with my sister and sister-in-law. We had a great time! And each of us came home with some treasures. I noticed that I had found items with a theme of red. Although my current decorating theme is very pale and calm, the studio I inhabited in San Francisco before my children were born was decidedly red hued. A few of my faves.....
I made this oversized grain sack market tote by hand.
And this grain sack which I purchased at the stunning
Full Bloom Cottage
in Orange CA
was used not only to create this pillow
But also to recover this chair cushion
I especially like it with the raw edged linen pillow on it
And the red in this photo is of the initials of the grain house which shipped their product in this particular sack
There is a red theme found in two of my bistro chairs
I have tried to find this company online in order to learn a bit about them but have been unsuccessful. If anyone knows of them, I'd love to hear from you
I like how none of them match but am especially partial to the one on the left because of the red poking out from underneath the coat of white paint.
I chose this one because it is unique in my opinion
And lastly, the texture and softness of this grain sack lured me to it
so much so that I did not want to make it into smaller pillows. So to keep it intact I chose to make a 51 inch long body pillow out of it.
have a great day!
