Diane Von Furstenburg Cotton Voile

Jeanette loves this Diane Von Furstenburg cotton voile. The pattern is a tangle of bramble-y branches over dime-sized kelly green dots.This fabric is soft as a cloud, and would make a lovely wrap to wear while riding Arabian ponies in the desert. Later, you can rest near a grove of Poplar trees, sip on hot tea in small glasses, and nibble thin buttery raisin cookies.

This apron created in Day of the Dead cotton by Mary has heart-shaped pockets, and hand-made contrasting bias tape trim. It will keep you splatter-free as you cook pigs in a blanket and baked Alaska for your next shindig! Hum along to “A Taste of Honey” by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass while doing the samba in your groovy apron! Cotton fabric can be found on the 2nd floor (please call ahead to verify specific fabrics).

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.
