Ode to Kate Spain

Better late than never 
as they say.

Remember this post here
when I won a box full of goodies
from Kate Spain herself?

I mentioned that I had a little something planned to
pay homage to one of my top five hero's in the world of fabric design.

I finally got it done.

Once again,
refurbishing old frames my hubby purchased at an auction

I did a little spray painting
and made my collage of Terrain along with Kate's autograph.

I now have it hanging 
(quite proudly, I might add)
above my cutting table in my sewing room.  

And just so you don't miss it,
here's a close up of the autograph.

(don't be a hater)
Yeah...I saved the envelope this whole time.
I knew I would get to it! 

To add to this yummy goodness,
I bought an old candelabra from my favorite little store in town.
(Toni's Treasure' weekly Saturday hangout!)

I took my friend, Amie's, suggestion and turned it upside down and added some bling.
(this just makes my sister's stomach turn)
hee hee
Now it looks like this:

Does this just rock your socks, or what?
(and please forgive the poor quality of my pictures.  I took them at 9:00 tonight
because I was TOO excited and HAD to share this with you ASAP!)

This wall of inspiration is a work in process.

Some of the things I've made with the gold mine of Terrain scraps I received are:

I have had so much fun with this.
There's still a lot left to do!

So once again,

(oh yeah...I'm not even remotely close to a being borderline stalker....)

I have more to post this weekend!!
I didn't want to overwhelm you in one post,
so more to come tomorrow!!

Yes. This just rocks my socks. I love it. I also love the color of your room. That's what color I want to paint my sewing room. Your homage to Kate Spain is just amazing. What a fabulous idea. I love her, too. So, is that center square fabric, or part of the envelope? you are really creative. You should send her a link to this post. She'd love it.
