Linen Haus Updates and More...

Happy Monday Everyone!  Even though it's Monday, it's the beginning of a very special week leading up to Christmas, so how bad can it be, right??!?  :) 

First up, I have gotten some inquiries about Linen Haus.  I'm thrilled that there is interest!  I know I am overdue in opening (absolutely not my style to be late, by the way) but for some very positive reasons I can't explain quite yet, I am waiting a bit longer to officially open the store on etsy.  However, I am happy to help anyone with individual requests in the meantime!  I have a page on pinterest here where you can find most of my current inventory.  And, if you're looking for something in particular, I may be able to find it for you at the markets.  Please feel free to email me with any inquiries! 

Speaking of Linen Haus, I am so excited to share that I have already made my first sale!  A wonderful woman emailed me asking about my dough bowls.  We had a nice exchange via email, talking about what she was looking for and how she wanted to find a family heirloom to be passed on.  It makes me so happy that it has found a good home.  :)  She recently emailed me a picture of how she is using it for Christmas.  She said she chose this decor specifically for her Grandson's enjoyment - I love that.  Take a look - I think she did a beautiful job!


Since we're talking about Linen Haus, I thought sharing a few pictures of the fabric that inspired it all would be nice.  Here are a few pictures of linen in decor that I think are just beautiful:

 This rooms looks so cozy and "lived in" (in a good way).  Linen only gets better with time!

Love this upholstered chair in the romantic french script linen...


This tailored linen sofa is such a great base for all of these interesting patterns!

As a lovely headboard and bench lend a timeless feel...

A gorgeous table runner that can be dressed up or down...

Why not have all of your lovely linens on display?

One more thing:  Today is the 1 year anniversary of when I started my blog, and what a year it has been!
I have been blown away by the incredibly supportive following that has sprung up over the last 12 months.  The comments & emails from readers and fellow bloggers, as well as thoughtful mentions on other blogs, truly make this worth doing. 
I have learned so much, been inspired so often and also have had so much FUN!!! 


Thank you to all of you who read & follow my blog!
