Yesterday, I got an email yesterday from Deborah, the designer and owner of Couch, with a link to her beautiful website. I'd seen her work before in LivingEtc (it's actually in my inspiration journal!) so it was lovely to recieve an email - it makes the world seem smaller when that happens. I really fell in love with this turquoise velvet sofa with the fuchsia cushions. Deborah makes 'one off' furniture pieces and cushions in the most beautiful colorways, many in patchworks of designer fabrics (recognize any?) Look at the upholstery buttons above and how they're different colors - I just love this idea! I really think I might do a sweater based on this couch, if she wouldn't mind too much. What a perfectly romantic Valentine's Day piece; I could see this in our formal living room when we buy a house, like, in a heartbeat.
And to keep the pink and blue going, I thought I'd show you my shoes (which tends to be a pet peeve of mine - when bloggers photograph their shoes.) I know it's just an excuse for me to wear pink craziness, but the Valentine's Day socks on offer are spectacular this year. I like to wear them with cropped jeans...oh, and my thrifted Ann Klein Mary Janes - $8.99 and new. Sorry to be so tacky, but a good score is always noteworthy so our readers around the world understand what it means to live in America.
And some more Valentine sweetness in the form of candy wafers. This is actually the cat's water bowl but I don't think she noticed. Have you had enough of pink and red for the week? Yeah, me neither. I don't think I'll ever get too much of it!
Today is a snowstorm, predicted to be so large that school was canceled yesterday. So, it's morning now and there is still no snow. I'm sure those of you who live in New England are astonished by this turn of events. We are camping downstairs today, making a fort, finishing up glitter valentines, working on a project with - oh no! - more granny squares - and making valentines cookies. I am also doing something with yarn in the colors of the couch at the top of the page but I haven't actually decided what that is. It might be a contraption to immobilize Junior, who opened up (and drank, I fear) three Diet Cokes before I was even out of bed this morning. You can relax, though, he recycled the cans. I promise I'll show you more soon, including the result of this post last week. Thanks for visiting Casapinka, for your emails, comments and all of your support for my creativity. I love having you here!
