Versailles Interiors were having a sidewalk sale--and had a big table piled with fabric samples and leftovers. I was in a hurry, but there was a fabric on top that caught my eye. Even though I swear I will never be a packrat, I must confess I have a closet shelf full of fabric. A quilt someday when I am too old to shop for fabric? You can say I'm thinking ahead!

The pillow is gone, sold on Ebay. When you are a dealer, things just "pass through" the house. The pillow is by Katha Diddel, still available. The sofa is sentimental as it was owned by my friend Bev who passed away, so I've not wanted to upholster it.

So I got my daily decorating fix with an unexpected $2 piece of fabric. No, I didn't staple it just yet, I want to see it in all kinds of daylight. (tough to do as we say we have 3 kinds of weather in Portland: July, August, and Rain) The delight of a beautiful object can feed the soul. I'm glad it found me. I can thank the designer who put together such an artistic print.
Happy September, I love the "change" seasons!
