color my world {fabric week}



It's week 4 of the Color My World Challenge... which means it's fabric week people.  I wasn't really sure what to do for fabric week.  I didn't want to do anything too time consuming and sewing was pretty much out of the question... you know, since I don't actually own a sewing machine.

So, initially I bought a mustard yellow pillow at World Market and thought I'd call it a day.  The pillow meets all of the fabric-week-requirements, so I figured, "Hey... mustard yellow pillow... I'm good.  Done."


But then I made the mistake of going to World Market again on Sunday to look for knobs for the new mustard yellow hutch... which I found by the way, and they look great.  I also happened to find this amazingly beautiful hand painted table runner...


It has just the right amounts of mustard yellow... don't you think?  And I love the way it looks with the hutch/dresser I painted last week...

I feel like having the table runner in the dinning room makes it look like the mustard yellow hutch was more intentional.  I love the hand painted details of the runner... and the smokey blue and brown colors are just a perfect mix for the space...


And because you can never leave World Market without looking at everything.... I happened to stumble into the pillow section again too... and I might have just happened to find a friend for my lonely mustard yellow pillow that I purchased previously...

I couldn't pass this one up.  It had the perfect teal and yellow combination in a beautiful stenciled design.  Don't they just look so happy together??

I thought so too.

Be sure to visit again next Tuesday for a full review and my thoughts on mustard yellow.

Great finds, the runner is perfect with the hutch and the pillows look great together too! I'm a bit jealous you live near WM and no that doesn't mean Wal-mart. ;)
