Sweet blue...

I was thrilled to hear that Julie Collings opened up an etsy shop. I have been a fan of Julie's work for quite some time. I love her style and attention to quality. I was in a swap with her last spring and was just amazed at how small she works and how lovely every little stitch and minute detail is. She has an impeccable eye. I was thrilled to meet Julie at Silver Bella last year and she was just as sweet in person. I was so excited to hear about her book that is coming out this fall.
So here is the sweetness that arrived from her little shop. See what I mean about attention to detail. Check out all her little vintage diddies here. This flocked wallpaper of hers has always been a favorite of mine. I needed to replenish:)
I thought that my package from Julie fit with the blue theme for this week over at Sara's Shades of Inspiration. Here are some more summer blues from around the house.

My package went out to hostess Heidi for the Parasols, Pink Lemonde and Polka Dots swap. I'll show you lots more once she gets it.
And you all know about the party here on Saturday, right? I cannot wait to see what she has in store. FUN!
