It's a Toile party!!!!!
I'm late, I'm late, to a very important date!! Well it is only 9am here in California, so I'm not too late. But for those of you back east, I guess I am a little late. But you know what they say, better late than never!!
So this week I've been invited (well I invited myself) to a fabulous party. A fabulous party you say? Yes, indeedee, a toile party. And anyone who knows me, knows I love me some toile. So of course I had to invite myself. I didn't want to miss out on all the lovely toile. Can you ever get too much toile? I didn't think so.
So if you don't get your fix of toile from my blog, just hop on over to Pretty Organized Palace to see everyone else participating in this party. Just a warning though, you may get a "toile" high from the experience. So you can't say I didn't warn ya!
And while we are at it, I might as well invite myself to another party. Three or More Tuesday is hosted by The Gypsy's Corner. And since I have 3 or more toile items, I think this post qualifies. So be sure to visit her and all the participants at that party as well.
So let's get this party started!!
Welcome to my, I mean our, master bedroom. Hubby didn't get much say in the decor, but he doesn't mind. As long as it wasn't pink roses, he was happy. The comforter set came from JC Penney last year. I love it. I switched it out last summer for a white matlesse coverlet. But this year I bought a flower toile coverlet that I am going to use. Notice I didn't show you a photo? That's because I was too lazy to switch it for photos. You'll just have to wait until the next toile party. At least I hope we'll have another toile party.
You can see the white matlasse coverlet in this photo. I still used the toile shams. I have plates on this wall that are toile inspired. And did you notice the lamp shade? Toile of course.
Here is a better view of the plates.
Close up of the shams. The black & white checked pillow actually has a flower toile on the other side, but I thought the checked side was a better contrast for now. Don't you love my monogramed pillow? I know I do.
Even Santa loves toile!!! I came home one night at Christmas to find Santa in my bed (don't tell my hubby). Santa just had to have his toile fix too.
My hubby just put up the toile drapes on our french doors. I forgot to take a photo of the entire door.
The lamp on my side of the bed has a toile shade as well. I have a couple of extra toile shades if anyone is interested in purchasing from me. If so, leave me a comment. You can't really see, but the pen holder on the table is also toile. Notice that I live real!!! I have kleenix, clock radio & phone on my night stand. None of the decorating stuff you see in magazines that gets in the way. I live real people, real!!! Now if only Klennix boxes came in toile. I would be a happy camper.
Toile boxes on the dresser. There is also a toile vinyl placemat under the jewelry box.
My favorite toile dishes that my hubby got me for Christmas. They are Spode.
Some toile plates in my kitchen.
I was hoping to have all my "toile" projects done by the party. But alas, I procrastinated and didn't get them done. So you will just have to use your imagination to picture the finished product. This is the rooster toile I am going to recover my kitchen dining room chairs with. It will look fabulous when done.
And this toile will be used for making new back pillows for my family room couch.
So there you have some of the toile going on, or going to be going on in my house. After I started to do this I realized other toile items in my house that I didn't photograph like the storage boxes in my closet, or the red toile apron that I never wear. You get the picture, out of sight, out of mind.
But I think I gave you enough toile for one day. If not, be sure to go to Pretty Organized Palace for some more. And don't forget to visit The Gypsy's Corner as well. And finally, why don't you leave me a comment before you leave. You know it's not polite to leave without saying "Hi!" But if you don't, I'll still love ya!!! Thanks for stopping by, and come back now, you hear!
