Gaga for Gingham

I Heard, As If I Had No Ear

Today is the 122 anniversary of Vincent van Gogh's infamous severing of his own ear. Contrary to popular belief, he only cut off the lower part of his left ear. In spite of van Gogh's existense as a tortured, starving artist, his work is now highly reputed. Our Sunflower oilcloth print is reminiscent of one of his most well known paintings, "Vase With Twelve Sunflowers."

Uncommon Objects

Paradise Lace Gold on a Black Background is a very new, beautiful print. All colors of our Paradise Lace print are popular, but something about this ornate combination of black and gold attracts attention from just about everyone. On a recent trip to Austin, TX, I discovered an amazing antique shop called Uncommon Objects; this shop's maxim is "raw materials for creative living." Our oilcloth would compliment their assortment of collectible items, unique antiques, and hypnotic vintage.

Be All That You Can Be

Where's Your Head At?

Our Jaguar Burnt Orange would be quite complimentary to Olmec art at LACMA's "Olmec: Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico."

Little Women

Paradise Lost

Dot dot dot

You Can't Change A Zebra's Stripes

Our Stripes Purple print is almost identical to this century old garment.

La Vie En Rose

Our Paris Blue print would have looked great in LACMA's "Eye for the Sensual,"an exhibit featuring selections from the Resnick collection. Designed by Pier-Luigi Pizzi, a world famous stage designer, paintings, sculptures, and furniture from Europe make up this unique combination of art.

The Girl Who Played With Fire

While watching The Girl Who Played With Fire from the comfort of my own home, thanks to the gift of instant netflix, I noticed our Roses in Squares Pink print and what may be our Forever Blue print! Looking good as usual.

A Case of the Mondays...
