Belle Meade Proper

I can't believe we are already past the halfway point in summer. Where did the weeks go? Writing has been a bit slower for me lately, as I have been trying to enjoy the downtime with my family and friends. And the break has been good for me to focus on things that get neglected in the busy school year, and recharge for the busy season that is looming ahead. (I have lots of fun new projects that I can't wait to share with you in the next few weeks!)

Having said that, there have still been exciting things happening this summer! Interior Canvas Home fabrics are continuing to be popular among customers and within the design community. From curtains to pillows, chair slipcovers and duvets -- the fabrics have all been seamlessly blending into so many people's homes. I couldn't be more excited!

Even more exciting:  A newly founded lifestyle company, Belle Meade Proper, reached out to me in the early spring. They were interested in collaborating with me and my fabrics for one of their products. I was flattered and delighted at the opportunity and couldn't be more excited with the final result. Check it out! How adorable is this wristlet using my Vine fabric!!!!


And wait till you see some of Belle Meade Proper's other adorable, preppy items! Here are a few favorites:
