Textures of home.


I hope you live in surroundings that stoke your fire. I hope that your living space is filled with meaning, that what you touch everyday leaves you imprinted with some vibe. And I hope that you’ll share some of that with me. Because I’m going to share some of it with you. The textures (and textiles) in my dwelling that are meaningful. That impact the way I go about living life at home.

Ah. To be surrounded by objects that take on life. It is elemental to my happiness that in my home, some object, when taken into hand, warms with the heat of body. Or that there is something in home that tells a story. Sometimes it is okay and it is enough that something is just pretty (enter: floral arrangements, a tapestry from a big-box store large enough to cover an entire white wall in your rental). But often, I find that my  life has a certain demand for living near handmades and intentional objects (as in: postcards as art, chunks of poem stuck to a wall, a sea shell from a friend’s adventure, a ribbon tied by a grandmother). Surely, I am a sentimental sap, surely this is the source.

Until next time.

Hi there. My name is Nicole and I have an affinity for fiber art and home grown everything. I am a mother, seamstress, maker; so on and so forth. I'm here to share my escapades in sewing, parenting, and sometimes marriage (and infrequently, knitting). You can reach me at Nicolesheree@gmail.com. G'day.

  1. Wonderful, I love this post. Its so great to be surrounded by things which have an emotional meaning, rather than a designer label….and even better if they are made by hand 🙂

  2. Ah Nicole, we are definitely kindred spirits! I have just unpacked a hand embroidered tablecloth I picked up in a flea market on a very happy day. So GLAD you found my blog.

    • I have the most lush linen hand embroidered table runner my great aunt did. With a one-year-old at the table, it seems silly to whip anything out that is just going to pull right now/smear/flick food all over. I miss it. I’m glad I found your blog too! Thanks for visiting me here!
