Bedding design

My trouble is that sometimes I know what I want before it actually exists. Does anyone else have that trouble? I can picture in my head exactly what I'm looking for and plan it all out in my head....but then what? So, this is the case with my bedroom decor. I want desperately to change my master bedroom, but I don't want to paint. I actually haven't tired of the current color yet. So, with the color scheme I have now, I have been trying to find the perfect bedspread. The other day I found a pattern on a pillow and it is very similar to what I was imagining in my head. So it inspired me to just create my own bedding design.

Now, does anyone know a textile designer/seamstress/retail store to actually make it and sell it??? Too bad my name isn't Ty Pennington and I could just come up with my own line! Now, that would be fun!!
original pillow design came from Pillow Pagoda via a Dose of Design post.
right pattern, wrong color and wrong avenue.

You go girl!

I love this video! My son does the same thing when he has a story to tell but doesn't quite know the words yet! She had quite a story to tell, though, didn't she? ;-)

More fun with flowers

While taking some snaps last week of my flowers, I thought this one was so cute with the little drop in the center. I actually ran across a Flickr account with some very interesting shots of droplets just today, so it seemed fitting to share this one of mine today. (no photoshop this time)

Check out some of Steve Took It's drops. His macro work is so awesome!
