fringe

Kim of Red Dirt Farm and Studio

I’ve been keeping my heart busy with projects.  They are all rocking some fringe.

So in the words of the Junk Gypsies  – “If loving fringe is wrong, I don’t want to be right.”

Yes, I’ve been a crafty sewing freak.

This spring I scored a bit of vintage fabric at thrift shops and yard sales.  Oh and all kinds of fringe too.

Boxes of it.

Oh Yeah!

I made a pair of curtains for the pool side bathroom door.

Mr. Cottage says I got the ’60’s thing going on here.

Several months ago, I bought a plain little stool at a local thrift shop.

Painted it one coat of Parisian Grey chalk paint, then a coat of  Grotto with a somewhat dry brush, so that the grey could still show.

Cut some foam to size.

Played with fabric choices.

Too plain, not the right color.

Nope. Right color, pattern didn’t feel right.

Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner.

More vintage fabric.

A pop of ball fringe and the completed project is ready to travel to Coral Cottage South.

I leave you with a few photos from last night.  Mr. Cottage and I were mesmerized by the full moon and feeling grateful to live amidst the beauty of the rolling hills of Virginia.

Barely there wispy clouds.

On the other side of the driveway the sun slips behind the trees in a blazing ball of awesomeness.

What projects have you been working on?  Do tell.

See you later, Bye!

    Hi Kim! Loved the selfie of you and your mom! Oh my god, so sweet & adorable!! TREASURES forever! Being creative in those precious moments with her. I chuckled during the “chapter” of her life when she and your dad would go on drives and come back with a car load of , I think flowers and material. And so we become our mothers………..hmmm I believe you and Charles go on some journeys that mirror your parents past.
    Your moms creative spirit is definately a part of your being!
    Luv n hugs- peace JC
