Toile Tales


A toile party!
A toile party-count me in! I just love anything toile! There are bits &pieces of it throughout my house. All colors and sizes-chairs, clocks, pillows, bedspreads, lampshades, dishes…the list goes on. My most toile-rific room is my guest bath. It is decorated in a garden-themed Toile de Jouy. I found the fabric on eBay. My red and white dishes have a toile sort-of-feel to them and I topped off my lights with toile shades as well. I have a fun black & white toile clock in my workshop. My cat Micky seems to gravitate toward toile-asleep on my guest bedspread and one the bench in the library.
There’s a blue & white toile runner on my dresser in the kitchen. I use a black & white country toile on my tables at craft fairs & herb festivals. Don’t forget o join the other party guests for a toile good time. Hosted by Pretty Organized & Wendy at The Shabby Nest.

Victorian Screen was a
consignment shop find.
My neighbor made the toile pannels.
I bought the fabric on eBay.




Found the light at a consignment co-op
for $10.00.

Love all your toile! Your hutch of red transferware and the lamp are my favourites. But it is all lovely. Thanks for sharing.

I love the little lamp. And of course the kitties asleep in the toile. Have a beautiful day.

Thank you for your nice comments on my kitchen. Love Toile too, I bought a red clock for my mother-in-law and painted a hutch to go with it. She passed away four years ago. Everything looks so beautiful...like a magazine cover!

Your home is so lovely, but my favorite part is the cats! Lucky, lucky felines! Cheers, Andrea

That screen is gorgeous. I love the "kitty on toile" patterns. Evidently, toile is as comfy as it is pretty!
