Window gazing...

...at Textile Fabrics in Nashville, TN. One could spend
hours in this store enjoying beautiful fabrics, buttons,
ribbons and more! Over the past few months, I have
been in the store often for needed supplies for various
projects. I have become friends with Joan, who hails from
New York. She has quite the eye for fabrics and is a very
accomplished seamstress, who has a wonderful vintage
fashion sense. I have learned much from her. Recently,
I was telling her that aprons are all the rage now and
there is even a magazine called Apronology from Stampington.
I went by the store last week and to my surprise, I see this
lovely window display of aprons!!

Joan now designs the wonderful window displays and this one is great.

Too bad my photography isn't as good. Notice among the aprons is
the A is for Apron book, filled with many ideas. Staff members made these aprons, and my favorite is the child size apron that
Joan made. She included pretty trim that becomes the tie.
A closer look....the cat fabric is fun!
The opposite window is celebrating springtime and Easter. Notice the
beautiful quilted Anna Maria Horner fabric on the right.
So many beautiful choices in fabrics today, they are truly a form of artwork.
Wishing you a happy day! Kana

  3. Hi! I love these fabrics and those of the previous post too. You have a lovely blog. I see that you are in Andrea's swap too, so we will have a tag of each other hopefully before Easter! I'm still in doubt whether to join the Marie Antoinette collage swap, it's nice to see that so many talented ladies like yourself are joining. Thanks for your visit, have a nice weekend!

  4. Kana, Textile Fabrics has long been one of my favorite stores. I know that I'm sure to find unique items for whatever project....from wedding gowns to ribbon embroidery. How nice that you were the inspiration for the cute apron display.

    Best Wishes

  5. What a lovely store! I grew up in Nashville and I have to say this fabric store is very different than the one my sweet mother would drag my sister and I to. :-) I think if that store had been more like Textile fabrics I would have enjoyed the experience a bit more!
