Toile Party!!

There is a toile party going on in blog land! Hosted by Pretty Organized Palace! I love TOILE don't you? I didn't know about the party until this morning so, these pictures were taken in a hurry, without great sun light...Here is just a little bit of the toile in my home...

I made this pretty lampshade and it sits in my studio on my desk.

In the background in the picture below you can see the toile curtains in my dining room.


Below is the eat-in area of my kitchen....


I made these shades and they are on a chandelier in my eat-in kitchen.


I even have a toile ironing board cover!


My master bedroom is toile, tole and checks!


Toile background inside my kitchen hutch.



Lavender toile in the guest room



And finally a toile shower curtain in the guest bath.

To see more toile visit Pretty Organized Palace for all of the other participants!
Welcome Home,
Penny

Hi Penny, I don't have a blog, just a blog follower. Nancy at SouthernLady featured my home on her blog and you left very kind comments. I just want to say your home is beautiful. I love all your toile. I am looking for some toile for the back of my kitchen hutch. I already have the chicken wire and have got to get DH to take the glass out for me and put in the wire. Love your toile mosaic table!! Have a great day...Kim

Sandra said...

Hello!
Oh! I think i'm in toile heaven! You have such a beautiful decor! I think i'll give my hubby a call and tell him that I need to go to Hobby Lobby for some toile fabric! :)

Vee said...

Ah yes! You and Manuela were separated at birth! (I thought that I was at Manuela's for a second there. ;D)

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Penny, your home and all of the Toile touches are so pretty and elegant.

A job well done!

Well Penny you and Manuela are twins when it come to Toile. I have none. I do like it though. I have a plate that belonged to my dad that is Syracruse and has pinkish red flowers all around, resembling the toile. Very nicely decorated home. Thx for sharing.

Shellmo said...

I love the tour of your place Penny! All you toile decorations are so beautiful and well placed! And I just adore that eat in bench w/ the pillows!!

Scribbler said...

I love your home! You are a kindred spirit. I especially love the lavender -- I have looked and looked for some in that color.

Many Blessings,

This is fabulous! I love the contrast of the black bow on that lampshade. It really makes that toile look like it's ready for a night on the town!

I adore all of your toile. I recently saw some pink toile at Target from Waverly that I'm trying to incorporate somehow into my house. Seeing everyone's toile makes me want it all the more.
My son has the same red and white check quilt in his bedroom. It's so cheerful!

Just Between Us Girls said...

Love love love all the touches of toile. I would love to have a whole room covered in toile. I once saw a nursery done this way...it was breath taking. Thank you for sharing. Step over to my blog when you have a minute...I would love to have you stop by.
Kindest thoughts,
Pat

Mary said...

I've always enjoyed seeing your touches of toile - your home is so lovely and always looks sunny and welcoming Penny.

I just received a length of a new toile I ordered to make a pillow for the dining room arm chair. it's very unusual - grey and ivory and the design is Turandot with the opera characters and lots of swirls etc. Quite pretty - need to crank the sewing machine up soon...........but the garden calls too!

Spring is all around here and my allergies can vouch for it!
Hugs - Mary.

Donna said...

Penny all your toile is so used in such a wonderful, decorative way, but my favorite is your pretty bedroom. It looks like a magazine photo! So gorgeous!

Rhondi said...

Hi Penny
I love toile because it never goes out of style. The toile in your home is lovely. That ironing board would almost make me like to iron, well maybe not...
Hugs, Rhondi

Lee Laurie said...

Penny,
I love all of your rooms. Everytime that I see toile...I think of you. Same thing when I see mosaics. I've been trying to think of ways that I could add some toile into my kitchen decor. I have a black hutch in there and I might put the toile fabric on the back of it like you did. Thanks,

Hugs,
Lee Laurie
