I cannot stop drooling over the new Hampton Hues collection.  It is my personal favorite fabric collection to date.  I have been obsessed with coral colors for many years now, and it’s so exciting to see them come to life in a fabric collection.  I was inspired by the beach and the Hamptons lifestyle, the colors of seashells and sand dunes, clean …

Yep, you guessed it, another “closet” project…

Well, long about now I’m really getting embarrassed. I keep blogging on these ‘almost finished’ projects and it’s dawning on me I need a 12-step program for this because there are so many more projects to go!
