This week we received a bunch of new eat.shop guides, and apparently I unwittingly got all the blues and greens. When I laid them out on the table I was taken by the color palette and so decided to find it in fabric...
The Sushi Collection for Moroso designed by Edward Van Vliet is so good. And it contains one of those perfect chairs. You know, a chair small enough to fit in a corner but full of color and personality. Did I ever tell you that I have no control when it comes to chairs? I covet them.

The shop hop is today! Just because we are so excited about it we are going to extend the 10% off organic fabric from yesterday plus there will be 10% off all Kokka fabrics and 50% off Art Gallery bag kits. Huzzah!
Happy Earth day everyone! In honor of this lovely day we are offering 10% off all organic fabrics today. That includes the new Cloud 9 and denim linen! It also includes Daisy Janie and the bamboo knits.
We are really trying to stock more organic fabrics, because one of the biggest pollution laden crops is cotton. I know a lot of people are put off by the higher prices of organic cotton, but as regular cotton prices increase I hope that people will start investing in organic. With the GOTS certification you can be sure that your cotton is as environmentally friendly as can be from seed to bolt. There is some great info on Daisy Janie's website about GOTS if you would like to read more..
Don't forget to come down to Westport on Saturday for the Shop Hop. There will be candy, discounts and fun, not only here but also at other Westport retailers!
And when you stop by Kdog Photographers on your shopping tour you can join in an Easter quickie. No, not that kind of quickie... Kdog will be doing small shoots from 10-2 on Saturday. It's free and no reservations are necessary!
This just in...a denim linen made from a blend of 50% hemp and 50% organic cotton. A gorgeous fabric that is nice to the earth. This is the first apparel fabric to trickle in from our recent large-ish apparel order. I wonder what will be next?
It's starting. I've been trying to ignore it, but with every walk on a nice day it's growing stronger and stronger. It's that itch to magically make my yard into a gorgeous backyard haven. Which of course, is not only easier said that done, but cheaper said than done.
I keep telling myself to stop adding to my list of outdoor things to do, but I can't stop. On the top of my list is to get these lovely Woolly Pockets. We have a fence in backyard and if I had my way we would Woolly Pocket it down the whole length. It would be an Oasis!
Lovely Maggie finished her Take Flight bag from Amy Butler's Style Stitches book. It looks great, doesn't it? Warning! I was told that it's a pretty intense bag to make, so prepare yourself. I think all the work was worth it in the end. That is a bag to keep forever.
Have you seen the cuteness that we have in from Sodapop? I love these wallets, they are a perfect size to carry knitting needles. And who doesn't like a goody bag? Filled with trims and tat they are total inspiration.
I just want to show off the necklace that e just finished. Yes, as much as e is a knitting master, she is really a jewelry master and this is her latest creation. It's silver, enamel and wood. The best part? It's reversible! I think it looks like a piano, she thinks a mitten. What do you think?
bon bon atelier is a boutique in Kansas City, MO. Opened by two sisters in July 2006 it features handmade gift items, home decor and fabric!
