Met a friend for coffee in the mountains
Getting the extra bedroom ready for youngest daughters Christmas visit. As I am trying to use a whole new color palette in the new house I opted for a white duvet, charcoal grey sheets and bed pillows with a nice pop of bright green and lavender throw pillows. Since I was making Hmong lavender batik pillows for me I decided to make some for the shop too. 1 old Hmong grandma we know makes colorful batiks like these. In the shop now and available in 16 or 20 inch sizes.
Hanukkah - more in our series of blue & white holidays. The richness of indigo is perfect for the Hanukkah table.
Starting to play with holiday decorating ideas. You know how I love indigo so I decided to do a blue & white color scheme using some of our indigo batiks. I am the kind of person that doesn't usually do things the same twice. My holiday decor has always started with a box of stuff. Things get put together differently every time. The other day I was looking at my pearls...never thought of pearls for Christmas before but suddenly I thought...oh pearls would be a nice touch in a blue & white scheme. 💙 I have more coming in my blue & white holiday schemes so stay tuned. Hash tag #sddblueholidays to show me your creations
I moved just a couple of weeks ago.This wall unit was very dated with a light blue trim glass doors and gold hardware 🙄 took the doors & hardware off, painted it all white (still need to find some cool vintage drawer pulls). I stole the awesome black wrought iron candle stand from Amy while she is in the US (shhh) put it over my salt lamp and made this awesome jewelry display. A handwoven basket from the local Thai shop to hold my brushes. Stacked my denim for a shot of color and a Siamese Dream Design indigo batik chair cushion to finish it off. 💙Looking at this every night as I lay in my bed across the room. Decorating .... 1 corner at a time.

Freshly dyed all natural indigo batik drying in the breeze out in the Hmong village.
Playing with textiles in my new house. Loving this Indonesian batik with the lavender Hmong batik on the pillow. Such fun being forced to decorate. 💜
