Makes me want to run home, paint my outdated hutch and get on with decorating things. What a find :) Reply Susan March 29, 2011 at 5:12 pm Love it! I used Marimekko fabric prints in college for artwork on my dorm and first apartment walls – in the ’70’s!! I would buy a yard of fabric and stretch it over a wood box frame. They were great – so cool to see you using them too! Reply Jill Browning March 29, 2011 at 6:26 pm You know… it appears to be the same shade of green that you are using in the basement. Couldn’t you repurpose it as some curtains or a toss pillow or stretched on a frame as wall art? Reply Making it Lovely March 29, 2011 at 6:28 pm Good idea! Reply Sarah March 30, 2011 at 8:26 am Jill is totally right! It would look GREAT with the basement! That right there is why I love the Internet :) Reply Heather March 29, 2011 at 7:22 pm Oh man, that would be perfect in my dining room. What are the chances that will ever go on sale?

Reply Cristina March 30, 2011 at 7:56 am it looks like a military towel. to many colors for me, i would have preferred white dishes! Reply Danielle March 30, 2011 at 8:09 am Ooh – I love it! But I’m afraid it might clash with my gray-blue walls. argh! And then again with our china…*sigh*. Reply Bella March 30, 2011 at 9:59 am Heather, I would look for them to go on sale near the end of the season. They were a late Fall/ early Spring Edition, so they should go on sale when we change over to Summer merchandise. BTW, I work part-time at a Crate &Barrel ( I have to add this for legal purposes). : ) Reply Danielle March 30, 2011 at 4:49 pm How pretty! Crate and Barrel… sigh.
