Friday Crush (and Thank You)

Meet my new fabric friend...isn't she pretty? I rarely see a good orange floral, but boy this one is fabulous. She picks up many of the colors of my living room and is a nod to my alma mater, the University of Virginia - orange and blue never looked so good.

I nabbed this pretty piece of fabric from Jenny over at Little Green Notebook - she is selling much of her fabric stash that she has accumulated over time (I know that feeling!)...check out her blog's sidebar if you're looking for some great fabric.

I also wanted to share a BIG thank you this Friday to my friend Beth over at Chinoiserie Chic - Beth was interviewed by and was very nice to mention Aesthetic Oiseau as one of her favorite DC blogs. I was giddy to see a link to AO on this week - thanks Beth! Read her interview here...

And some belated, hearty thank yous to the ladies over at Chic Coles for giving me the Happy 101 blog award and to Catherine of The Shiny Pebble for giving AO her Favorite New Blog Award. Thank you all so, so much - it really means a lot to me to get such nice feedback.

I know the tradition of blog awards is to pass them on and the only reason I haven't is time! But, I'm planning a post with some of my favorite blogs to pass on these lovely awards, so stay tuned...

I'm pumped because I get to see Charlie, my nephew, this weekend - woohoo! So, I will be in Auntie mode all weekend and loving it! Hope you're looking forward to your weekend...

See you Monday!


  1. love the fabric-orange and blue is one of my favorite color combinations-have a lovely weekend!

  2. I don't know how you do it all! But I do love your blog. :) And I love the design as well. Just noticed recently that Chinoiserie Chic's blog was designed by you. Sooo cool.

  3. I did design CC's blog - isn't it fun? :) Thanks again for the award SP!

  4. Beautiful fabric and thanks for the mention. Have a great weekend.

  5. I couldn't agree more HH - orange and blue is nice, especially varying hues, but not often used. I'm clearly partial to the combo for my blog!

  6. Same to you SR2 (a.k.a. Beth)!

  7. swoon, orange and blue- what is there NOT to love!!

  8. Hope you have a great weekend!!

  9. Ah ha I should have know you were the one that stole that glorious print away from me!!!

    I emailed Jenny yesterday and see told it was all gone. So sad.

    Happy to hear that it went to you and I'll be able to see it soon in person.


  10. In my own defense HHFITD, I only bought 1 yard! Jenny was down to 4 left when I emailed!
