Bloggie win and a Toile Party!

I received my teacup and saucer from Jan and Tom. Probably should have taken a pic before removing the pretty tags but I was pretty excited. Here it is:

Isn't she pretty? Sorry for the slight shadow. I've thought about having Cabinet Man make me holder for the cups and saucers that I have (all 3 of them so far) but I also love the pretty wrought iron ones that I see...

Also my toile for Toile Party being hosted over Pretty Organized Palace. Such pretty stuff that everyone has...I hit Goodwill last Friday (as well as on Sat for their 50% off everything sale,but that is stuff for later). It was full of black flat pebbles for flower arranging and decor....best part? It was $.49!!!! (I'm trying to figure out why I can't link to her site), but the name helps. Blogger hates me today so......

Unfortunately I don't have a pic of the Ultimate Toile that I have at home....Winnie the Pooh toile in pale blue and white! Here's a pic from ebay.

So head over the Pretty Organized Palace's site and check out the pretty toile!


  1. Congratulations on winning the pretty teacup and saucer. It is just lovely. I also really like the pretty soft blue and white toile. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  2. I love the blue Winnie the Pooh. How sweet for a baby's room....or mine. :) Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for posting about your TEACUP and SAUCER. Did you find the little EXTRA gift in the package, too?

    I love toile, too! Soon, I'll have some to show!


  4. Love the Winnie the Pooh Toile! So sweet for a baby's room! Thanks for sharing.


  5. Winnie the Pooh toile! Oh, that's unbearably cute! (no pun intended!)

  6. Oh, Winnie the Pooh Toile is so cute :)

  7. Yes Jan, I found the 'extra'...and my 9YO is starting to sew and she confiscated it immediately. I decided that was okay, she's a sweetie.

    No idea what I'll do with the W-the-Pooh toile...it would be perfect on a baby quilt...for a grandkid...I suspect my younger sister would like it to make one for her granddaughter, but I TOLD her where to buy it (Walmart) so it's her fault. ;D Since we have 4 kids and potentially unlimited grandkids, I'll probably have to use it to make a square in each quilt (like I am EVER going to quilt) Maybe one side of a pillow...or maybe I'll use it for me.

  8. Oh, now that I've seen the Winne the Pooh toile I want some!!! It's great!

  9. Hi , thanks for the kind words on Miss Frannie Fringe... just love your blog !

  10. Hi./...thanks so much for coming by today.
    The color yellow I used for my walls is called
    A TOUCH OF GOLD from Walmart. I really like it a lot....
    I love your Goodwill find...and the toile...to die for. Love it..

  11. Winnie the Pooh! That's fabulous. What a fun fabric. So unique. Thanks so much for linking up!

  12. I've got that toile! I found it at Walmart. I bought it as a background for my area in the classroom known at the "Thoughtful Spot" for little ones who need some time to reflect or gain back control of their emotions in class. My daughter wanted me to make curtains out of it for my grandson's room. I don't know how to thread a bobin though!!! :-)

  13. I wish I had bought more of it. And if you check around, you can make curtains without sewing. Stitch witchery, check out The Nester for her mistreatments...I promise, there are ways to do it without sewing.
