extra seating

who doesn't want these anthropologie chairs for extra seating? but at $198 a pop they are unlikely to find their way into my house.
the diy apartment therapy version.

i have a pair of blond wood chairs with uncomfortable seats that my husband bought
long before we were married. an upgrade is in order.

i'm thinking chinese blue or vermilion red instead of black.
depends on exactly what is in my exotic textile collection right now...

oversized flowers

make great hats!

from mignonne's shop on etsy.

via stylehive

from mia von monk's etsy shop

from batcakes' etsy shop.
(awesome feathers, not actually a flower)

the diy vintage vogue pattern.
i have a soft spot for the vintage vogue patterns.
although, I don't think you need a pattern to make a good diy hat
for a cocktail party or a wedding.
