The Cote de Texas sponsor, Lewis and Sheron Textiles, in business since 1944, is one of the largest on-line fabric stores.  In addition, they also have a store in Atlanta where lucky throngs can shop in person for discounted fabrics, rugs, and other home décor items.

Their inventory is huge.  Here are some of their beautiful blue and white fabrics.  I spy a look alike Carlton V fabric, third from the top.  Don’t these make you want to go decorate a beach house?

Here is a selection of their brights that the younger set gravitates towards.  I really love the suzani prints here.

My age group tends to like these more muted tones of blues and creams and grays.  These would make a beautiful living room or bedroom.

 

Today, I had so much fun picking out a few fabrics I like from their “New Arrivals” collection.  I tried to coordinate them in sets of three.  Here are some of the favorites:

My niece Brooke and Riley

And, finally, you remember my tales of Riley, my nephew-dog HERE.   My nephew Jeffrey and his wife Brooke adopted Riley who just recently turned 7 months.  We were thrilled to welcome Riley into our extended family – he’s a look-alike Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to our daughter Elisabeth’s own dog Lucy.   When Jeff and Brooke traveled, we were so excited to keep Riley with us – most recently for over two weeks while they took a trip to celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary.   Because of this, we got to know Riley very well and came to love him as if he were our own.  Sadly, he got ill last weekend and never recovered.   We are all heartbroken.  So, today, if you have a cat or a dog or both, just hug them a little bit closer.
