Best Day Ever

for a few reasons! i saw in my blog traffic that i had been visited by at home arkansas (which i'm having lots of fun browsing) and was mentioned in this post!! thanks so much!

and secondly, friday i went to a well known (in Boston) discount fabric store called zimmans. if you live in the boston area and haven't been, go. i've been a few times but never have had the wild success that i had friday. my loot:

even better, i went armed with a $50 groupon. first find was schumacher's deco flower in berry which normally retails for $116 a yard. inside fabric has it for $81.20/yard and zimman's bargain price? $29.95 a yard. BOO YA.

next find was another schumacher - bleecker designed by celerie kemble. let's play again. regular retail price is $110/yard, inside fabric has it for $77/yard and i paid, yup, $29.95/yard. i also saw it in 2 other colorways, absinthe and peacock.

together, these will become new pillows for our family room.

also picked up a tiny bit of this fabric. retails for (i'm not sure how much but it's 100% linen like the schumacher ones above) a lot, zimmans price: $24.95.

a few other fabrics that i had to snap some pics of, sorry about the crappy cell phone quality. hard to tell but this first one was a beauuutiful purple cut velvet. i loved the haphazard pattern:
