Wheat Striped Linen Drawstring Pants

We now have oodles of linen in our online store! This is a favorite with a warm wheat color, variegated stripes, and the rough loveliness of linen. It’d make a splendid pair of drawstring pants, and Liz at SewForHome made a tutorial for comfy drawstring pants — perfect sunning on an island boulder under a paper parasol. Pass the pink lemonade, peel me a grape, and then let’s take a lazy afternoon siesta!

Glorious Butterfly Tote – Constance


Constance lives in the beauteous Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, and made a charming tote from fabric purchased from Britex Fabrics. We love the stunning over-sized butterfly printed linen, and the way she picked up the papillon wing color in the muted green of the straps and trim. This mid-weight home decorating linen is found on Britex Fabrics 2nd floor.

Sea Shell Home Dec Linen

This home decorating linen is scattered with beautifully rendered giant naturalist-style drawings of shells. The mollusk drawings are reminiscent of the work of Fielding Meek (1817-1876), American geologist, paleontologist, fine illustrator, and the first scientist in residence at the Smithsonian. It would be stunning as a shower curtain in a coral bathroom. Image lolling in a claw foot tub and exfoliating with a lavender salt scrub, while admiring this beautiful fabric.
