A Folk Tale – Style Board


Happy Monday! Hope you all had a delicious holiday and are finding a moment here and there to yourself in this mad-dash beginning of the holiday season. It is about now that I start pulling out the 'cozy' things. Not necessarily sweats, but clothes and accessories and home decor that make me feel safe and snug. For me, that involves lots of colors and layers. I know, surprise!!

Nothing satisfies this craving for me more than folky or bohemian patterns, textiles and prints. Top-stitched with crewelwork? Don't mind if I do! Bedecked with studs of silver and gold? Yes please! Edged with fur? (faux for me) Nordic in nature? Crazy Colorful? I'll take two! Seriously, I get short of breath just thinking about it!

Admittedly, this board was more than a little, inspired by Anthro's Karelia Coat. This thing of beauty is totally over the top and will totally and gloriously transform me into one of the VonTrapp family singers. Ok, I may just have to wear it to the grocery store…but I might sing a tune while doing it.

I am working on some big stuff over here for you guys…and am always interested in what you'd like to see more of. I love getting your feedback and love that you guys are reading and checking this out! Thanks! So, for now…enjoy this folk fantasy!
