etsy friday : stripe me sally

Who's Sally? She's the gal that can pull off any stripe ensemble without looking like vinyl siding or a jailbird. She could be me. She could be you. 

I love stripes. I'm not into the whole trend of horizontally painted wall stripes though. Don't hate me, but I think it looks a little 90's. Course, I think that about any faux wall treatment save pearl sheen or that strangely beautiful french sanded wall look that I wish we had kept in our dining room---it was the result of using our unused paint as primer, and it looked SO cool. See below...Just the top section, of course.
note: this is not Sally. Tis me mother in law. She's great.

Moving on. I love stripes on babies. (LOVE stripes on babies' clothing). I love those sailor shirts with blue and white stripes. Love striped rugs, pillows, blankets, curtains, and even heels. I think there is a striped object for everyone to love out there. It's classic, fun, and somewhat funk.

I've chosen a handful of pursuable striped objects from etsy today. Enjoy! Let me know if you ever purchase something we've highlighted. I'd love to hear that we added a little traffic to a great vendor!

um, yeah, so I couldn't resist those last two. So what about you? Where do you like stripes?



  1. Great list of stripy things! Thanks for including my book! My name is spelled with a C, though. Just so you know :)

  2. You have a wonderful blog and this is a beautiful post of striped object! Thank you for including my teal striped cotton washcloths here!

  3. If you ever have a little girl, I hope you will have her photographed in large flowers, peapods, pumpkins, etc., in the style of Anne Geddes, who was a favorite of yours in your teen years.
