Sunny Yellow Cottage Fabric



A few months ago, I purchased some yellow floral pillowcases from
an eBay listing.  I was looking for a way to incorporate more yellow
into my studio and was planning on using the fabric for decorative
pillows, but there was one that was so charming that I knew I
wanted to see it all the time while I work at my desk.  This pattern
reflects the little vintage doll quilt that hangs from the drawer of this
mini hutch, so I used it to back the shelves.



When I set it in place, I found it to be such a cottage sweet
backdrop for the bits of china etc.  



It gives the whole ensemble a sunny and cheerful look.  It's just
the happy glow that is needed on a cool, damp and gray
January day.



I want to have the studio walls painted this spring.  Originally
I planned on white walls, but now I am thinking that maybe
a soft yellow will be just the look I want.


Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  3. Very sweet, I think I handmade a blouse of similar material, when I was a child. I'm seeing a lot of White everything getting switched out for pale colors in the blogs. Fun look here, Sandi
