Before and Afters.....I have been slacking!!

i have a couple of before and afters to show y'all....they were sent to me when i was at the beach and then got hidden away in my overflowing inbox! but today i was doing some cleaning and found them and am happy to show them off to you! the first one is with the super popular quadrille fabric i sold (for months i got emails from people asking if i had anymore...i was sad to sell it all). amy from the huntress lives made a pretty roman shade for her stairwell with her purchase! i think it looks fabulous. i wonder if my husband would let me use my leftovers in a part of the house other then tay's room?! amy's looks so cute!
the second two are from helen at whitehaven. she has bought a couple of fabrics from me. one was kelly wearstler that she made into a great lumbar pillow for her bed and the other was the popular BB chairs from barbara barry (at one time she was thinking about selling these so they maybe up for sale if you are interested). love your cute pillows helen...even if they drive your hubbie crazy!
Thanks so much girls for sending me these!! Sorry they got buried away but i am glad i fished them out :) remember, if you have any pics that you would like to share from a purchase here, please send them to me!!! they make my day!
