announcing winged!

winged fabric collection by bonnie christine

it’s here it’s here! i’m thrilled to announce my brand new fabric collection with art gallery fabrics called winged. i’ve been so anxious to share it with you!

ever since i was a young girl, i’ve always delighted in seeing the first butterfly of each spring season. it’s such a special moment to me. it represents new life, change, a new season, warmth, possibilities. winged was inspired by this first spring sighting and the delights of waking up to the birds chirping outside my window. it represents a season’s fresh beginnings and the dawn of a new day.

i also believe that if we have enough courage to spread our wings, we can fulfill our biggest dreams. here’s to letting all our imaginations fly free!

p.s. i’ll be debuting winged at the international quilt market in pittsburgh may 16th-18th. winged will begin shipping in june. check your local quilt shop for availability or this link for online shops. :)

diy woodland animal pins

i think these woodland animal pins from oh happy day are so sweet! she used them as party favors for a woodland themed celebration (see also this woodland backdrop and woodland party invite!), but they would also be darling to use as an accessory or to give as gifts. it’s been a long time since i’ve used clay and paint, but it’s one of my favorite mediums to play with. head on over to oh happy day for the full tutorial!

  golden dot decals (2)

larken’s nursery

golden dot decals. i absolutely love this trend! i think it’s such a fun and easy (not to mention affordable!) detail to add to a room. i especially like the idea for a children’s room or nursery since the dots can’t fall down or be pulled off the wall.

above images clockwise: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

you can find confetti decals on etsy, urban walls or even make them yourself. anyone inspired?

pretty pegs

i’ve been scouting out pretty leg options for our karlstad sofa lately. we’ve had ours for over a year now, and though we’re super happy with the sofa, i think i’m ready to update the stock ikea legs. i at least painted them white after we purchased the sofa, but they are still kind of blocky and blah. it seems like there are a lot of options out there and i’ve had so much fun discovering them all! though i may try to diy this project myself, i couldn’t help but fall in love with the legs from prettypegs. i thought you might like to discover them as well! they are made specifically for furniture from ikea- so you can have fun adding spice to your pieces!
