For The Love of Toile.


Did I ever tell you how much I love toile? Well, I do! I am so drawn to the beautiful vintage, turn of the century print. I think I lived at the turn of the century in another life. There are two eras I'm drawn to and that's, you guessed it, the turn of the century and the 1940's (if you haven't noticed my music yet). :)

Here are some beautiful toile items I found online that I just love!

Must have toile lampshade....

Of course every vintage girl needs a toile bag....


And a beautiful toile bed to dream in....


Some toile pajamas to sleep in....

A toile bed for FiFi to sleep in....
Some toile napkins for the tea parties you'll have....
Some toile fans for your tea party guests to fan themselves with after partially fainting from hearing how much you spent on FiFi's bed....

A toile apron to cook in before the tea party even though you don't know how to cook but dang you look good....
Some toile rainboots to walk FiFi in when it gets rainy....and easy to wipe after kicking FiFi's poop into the neighbor's yard.... And a little raincoat for FiFi to wear outside when it's raining because FiFi has to be fashionable like mom....

One day I will have all of these. :)

I think my cat, Mocha, would love the bed, Melody. ;) Course then she will mistaken herself with being Queen of the house and well, that's me. ;)

Love your sense of humor. I am a toile addict too. I don't have alot of it but I hope once I'm moved in I'll add a little toile to the new place.
