Artists: Ana & Annette

Hand painted fabrics for the home.

Good morning! I hope that your week has been fabulous, and that you have some very nice plans in store for the upcoming weekend. As for today's inspiration, I am so happy to share a fascinating company with you—and one to truly celebrate. Here we begin with a look at the beautiful work of two talented ladies, Ana & Annette : "A simple story that begins ... the edge of the Marais, not far from the ocean, when we put our fabrics out to dry between trees, when the wind, light, and nature touches…"

(please pardon the translation of the quote from French to English)

These lovely ladies work closely together to create an array of pieces that bring nature into the home in new, fresh ways; Who are proud to bring sustainability in the way of cheese cloth, hemp, flax and cotton, into each piece. The style offers such beauty in the rustic approach… we see imperfect gestures, wrinkles, and a breezy, care-free way of daily living and relaxing that is undeniably appealing, particularly for the warm Spring and Summer months.

Plus, as we are on the topic of beauty, do stop by {this is glamorous} and view this week's {take me away} post, sharing some of the most incredible views and places to visit throughout Dublin, Ireland, what to pack for your journey, and of course, much more!

  3. Dearest Sarah,

    Love the idea and the flax and cotton but with a different printing.
    Thanks for your visit and comments.
    Got a full week after we got back from Curaçao. Replaced the hard drive of my PC and had to re-install lots of programs. That was robbing my precious time. Always another surprise around the corner.
    Did a post about my Mom who's celebrating her 4th dialysis anniversary. The statistics say that one can expect less than 5 years of additional life in the End Stage of Renal Disease. Let´s pray that she will outlive the rule!
    Love to you and enjoy a great weekend. Our temps are like summer-time; unreal!
