I went to Micheals today to check out the new Martha stuff, I love it. The kids stuff makes me want to start a rainy day activity basket for the girls. I bought a little kit for Emma to make a puppet and these little flags for the 4th of July. There were also these great big red, white and blue paper stars...so cute. I have missed Martha by Mail, so it is fun that these products are now available.
The red Ikea sofa. I remember when we got this a few years ago. I wanted a khaki sofa, but Jeremy really thought we should have some color in the living room. At first I was paranoid about the hint of orange in the red. I was worried people would come over and say, why did you by an orange sofa? silly, I know. Now I love the color, it fits with our home. Ikea no longer carries this slip cover...too bad, now their red is a much brighter corduroy. The only hard thing is finding fabric with a similar red, We found the blue vintage floral fabric at a store, called Turkey Feathers, in a tiny town called Comfort, Texas. They had the best fabrics.
