Oh Hello!

I haven't posted on over a month. Yikes!

At least I can say I posted once before April is over.

Here's whats new. A man came by my work selling awesome things from Africa. It was hard not to spend a bajillion dollars.

I took a picture of an awesome fully beaded chair to show you but unfortunately that disappeared since I dropped my phone in the toilet.

Thats right, in la toilette. Luckily it was pre-use. Oh well....

I did snag this beaded panel for $25. 

It was hard to choose my favorite.

I've settled on this fabric for the Danish chairs in our breakfast nook. It's $45/yard but I don't need a lot so I'm going to go for it soon.

The most exciting thing is this vintage Turkish rug I scored on Craigslist. It's about 6x3 for only $120.

I super duper love it. I'm not sure if the kitchen is meant to be its home but it works for now. 

I might move it into the bathroom when its finished, which looks like this now...

It already feels so  much bigger without the fur-downs in there. I will never understand why they built homes with them. Next to come out is that weird little half wall next to the sink. 

I ordered two of these in the two light version for in here.

They are from here.

Tiling will be next after construction is done and the lighting is installed so we can see in there.

My father in law brought me these hand dyed Batik fabrics from Malaysia. They are super awesome. He is on a mission from me to score textiles from all the countries he visits. That includes India, China, Morocco, and various European nations. I'm ridiculously excited about it.

My name is Brandi and I'm addicted to textiles!

I'm working on painting yet another awesome piece  of furniture I found in the trash. Hopefully it will be done by the end of the week to show you guys.

What have you been up to lately?
