A Toile-apalooza!

Have you heard? Pretty Organized Palace (whom I aspire to be like when I grow up) is having a Toile Party! Wooooooo! I loves me some toile! I have stacks of various toile patterned fabric in a closet begging to be used. If you're a toile nut, head over to the party and check it out. But not until after you've seen mine!


These pillows are made using Kimba's no sew method. They are actually yellow and blue, but it's hard to see the color in these photos. The pillow in the back shows the reverse side fabric. The curtains don't technically qualify as toile, but I love them anyway.


This is another of her no sew pillows (can you tell I love them?) on my salvaged chair in our guest/school room. I have more toile that will go on the bed when we actually get one. I love the red, yellow and black together.


More at my kitchen window. This is a better representation of the color on the first set of pillows I posted. These are a total mistreatment, BTW. I folded the fabric in half, clipped it up and poofed it out. Thanks Nester!


Here's my French Memo board that I made about 4 years ago. It usually has more stuff on it, but I just put it up, so it hasn't had time to get covered.


This is our last house in AZ. Back when I had my own bathroom. Oh, how I miss you bathroom. Sharing one bath with M and Indy is so not my thing. Also, it's very boyish. M has declared it a "no toile zone." Humph! This was another mistreatment. I just stapled the fabric to the wall, looped some long ribbon around the fabric and tied it up.


So that's my toile love for today. NOW you can go check out other toile nuts.

i like toile, too, but i'm not as crafty! i have a beautiful spread in our guest room, but it is now being occupied, so i can't creep in there and take photos... that just wouldn't be right! :) have a great day!

Love the red chair with the toile pillow on it! So striking. I bought (didn't make like you did) a couple of toile message boards and I tucked lots of old family photos in them.

Cracking up that your bath was declared a "no toile zone." Ha.

I have a blue and white toile memo board that I made for my daughter. Yours look great and all of your toile touches in your home...

Felicia said...

Yep, I agree, the red and black together are a great combo :)

Pam said...

Great toile ideas. I'm definitely going to check out the pillow idea because I have some toile that has been begging me to make it into pillows. I've been a chicken. Maybe this will give me the push I've been needing. Love the message board, too.

Amanda said...

Cute stuff!!! Love the kitchen mistreatment! Thanks for the link to the no sew pillows - I'll definitely be checking that out! Great toile - thanks for sharing it with us!

Southern Charm said...

I like your pretty toile pillows. I saw that over at Kimbas today and I want to try it. Yours looks great!

The red/yellow/black combo is my fave--it's so French country-looking! Thanks for sharing all your pretties!

Your toile projects are very pretty. I was reading your post on the 18th and we have the same wedding anniversary.;D Except I've been married 31 years.;D

Those yellow walls, red chair and B&W toile are so yummy.... It's easy to see that you have a happy home! Take care over there in Germany!! Cheers, Andrea

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

I love toile. I don't think a person can have too much. While checking out your blog I realized I forgot some things on my post. I must have toile in every room. I do love what you have posted.

I think I have that yellow and blue toile fabric! I had lovely curtains in my old kitchen, but the new kitchen doesn't have the same windows, which is a darn shame. Beautiful job on the pillows. I am going to do me some!

Misti of Studio M Designs said...

Hey girly, I have already commented on your toile, but, I wanted to pop over and say an early Happy Birthday to you! I say switch days and turn off on Saturday instead! Who wants to miss out on birthday love? I got your back, girl...
