White, Yellow and Green

"The world is glittering with gold, and yellow streamers
of sunlight wind through the tree boughs like
God was throwing a party"

Remember this post...well, I finally got around to having a pillow made from the antique white, yellow, and green fragment I found in Paris.  

Many swatches later, I settled on a Lee Jofa velvet in basil.

Up to this point I've just purchased "pillas" (rhymes with nilla, as in wafers.)  This my first fancy pillow.  Thank you to Martha Moore of D'Antignac Designs  for the construction.  





This summer's nasturtiums will fade, but now I'll have a little yellow and green all year round.

I must say that I miss Mischief & Mayhem...I wanted to see them sitting pretty there eating some sort of lemon tart. You know I went through my yellow and green period and now I am in my white and black period.
I am looking forward to sharing it when it's all ready.
