Project Design Team Wednesday~Indoor Awning

21 Mar 2012


UNDER COVER never looked sew good!   Materials needed: Less than 1.5 yds  for topper material ( same for backing) No tools Thread notions And some lumber and felt pads.   If you have admired outdoor awnings as much as I, then you will love the ease of this indoor awning, that would suit any window in your home. ( I am now designing one for an 8 foot window under a window seat) That pattern will soon be available too!     Our home is decorated in only 3 colors  --taupe walls, black case goods and buttercream furniture and accents.    I chose this Tuxedo ... more

Hi there!!

     I'm Jen from Tatertots & Jello. I'm a mom of 4 and I love to share creative ideas and tutorials on my site. I am thrilled to be on the Riley Blake Design Team.

Fabric and Fun in New Orleans

05 Mar 2012

Bret and I recently went to New Orleans and enjoyed the food, the music and the architecture. This is Emeril's kitchen in New Orleans...the best food around.

The live Jazz music made us melt in our seats. And the beautiful homes located by Tulane University made us stop and stare. I love the colors of this store front....I will never get tired of red and aqua. The buildings lined up in the french quarter where charming both in color and design.
