In The House!

There are some great things in the house that I’ve seen in the last few days.

First up, some of the new line of Lilly Pulitzer fabrics by Lee Jofa. This is a brand new line of Lilly by the yard and will be available soon. For all of the Lilly lovers out there, this is something to look forward to! I remember very fondly the Lilly Shop near where I grew up – it was always fun to pick out Lilly’s name in the pattern.Dirty ShirleyAs they have been for 50+ years, these are wonderful patterns, and you can see the trademark “lilly” in the Dirty Shirley pattern above.

I was in Marshall’s today and saw these great watering cans from perennial favourite, the Victoria & Albert Museum. Love the patterns, and they reminded me a lot of some of the Liberty for Target pieces.

I was at Gore-Dean the other day with my sister-in-law and one of her friends, and I saw this book:04-25 012 It’s no secret that I would KILL for this book! I spent a few minutes looking through it and the book is every bit as wonderful as I expected it would be. Fleur Cowles was a genius and way ahead of her time.

We also saw this amazing Moroccan table at Gore-Dean. It was really incredibly made with so many inset pieces of coral, silver and mother-of-pearl. Just spectacular.04-25 009

Finally, these are at DeBois Textiles – they’re gay hooker shoes. I think that someone needs to put a guppy or two in the soles! Someone has put some lollipops in the sole, but that’s just wrong!04-25 004 I managed to leave these at the store!

  3. Well, I like the Lillys very much. But I really love the V&A watering cans. Lurv, luv, love. Must find my nearest Marshall's and see if they have them.

  4. The table is incredible.

    Naughty! I can't believe you left those shoes behind, they would be perfect for just doing the washing up or hoovering. And, just to be clear, they are trany hooker shoes.

  5. I am ga-ga over your ever-changing headers! This Pigtown header superimposed above the claw-footed tub is the best! Maurie@graciousinteriors.blogspot.com

  6. Wow, Meg. So much good and then *blam* those shoes. Yikes.
    I bought the red and purple V&A can as a gift recently. I paired it up with the purple/magenta Liberty gloves from Target and added a few other tools that all looked really pretty together.
    Totally with you on the Flair book. So awesome. But I'll have to find it in an unsuspecting thrift store or estate sale to afford it. Hve fun at Ladew!

  7. I have the one and only men's issue of Flair. Any chance you could do a little better with your photos?

    love and such. ADG

  8. Meg, you're going to kill me -- but I have every single issue of Flair ever published. Got them all on eBay. Don't have that hardbound collection book, but I have 'em all just the same!

  9. The shoes are YOU!!! Go back and grab them!!! :)

  10. Damn, girlfriend - what's my shoes doin' in that shop?

    Seriously, the first time I read this post I thought you said "gut a puppy in those soles", and nearly choked on my coffee. Extra helping of dyslexia for everyone, on the house!

  11. Marcheline,

    I did the same thing -- read it twice and still saw "puppy" -- and had to go back and read it a third time! I think anything with "-uppy" in it appeals to my sensibilities in only one direction.
