I have a red and yellow toile seat cushion on my old wicker chair.056I have a swatch of Waverly toile that is a discontinued pattern; gonna make another pillow out of it. 012

I already made this pillow cover from another Waverly toile pattern from another discontinued pattern. I still need to stuff it!013

Sue, from Collectin Texas Blogspot, didn’t even know how much I love toile when she sent me this gorgeous purse in my Bunny Swap package.How cool is that?034

And, now I am being tortured by this Ethan Allen sage green toile chair and ottoman , in my favorite cottage style design. It is posted on Craig’s List for 250.00 and was originally almost 2,000. (seller has the original paperwork to prove it).toile chair So, do I have enough? Is it too much, as in overkill? I can’t stop thinking about it!toile chair2

I LOVE how you've mixed up all the color of toile looks eclectic, warm & inviting!

Hi Cindy,
Can one have too much toile? Answer: NO! I love all your toile and you have so many pretty patterns too. Love the green sage chair and ottoman! I don't blame you for wanting it. I'm swooning myself!

No way can you ever have too much toile, no way, no how!
I would have toile in every room if I could pull it off. I think I might have a touch in every room, um.
Yellow toile pillows, pink toile pillows, green toile pillows and curtains....yes, I love toile.
You had better hurry and get that chair or, did you already?
I love all of your toiles and they mingle well together.

Wow, Cindy...I really didn't know what a 'Toile Gal' you were when I sent the Toile Bag. By Golly, you may be the Queen of Toile! (whispering here) I have a bolt each of RED and BLUE Toile...I can't decide what to make with it...gotta be something special and will probably be a quilt. What a'd look great sitting there with your Toile Bag!

Kiki said...

Sarah said...

Oh, I put toile in the same category as dishes . . . once can't have too much of either of these. :-) I think at that price, if you love it, get it! Good luck with the decision. ~ Sarah

Hi Cindy,
I love your beautiful post. I adore toile as well, and I especially love that wonderful purse!
You have to have that chair and ottoman, that is an amazing deal!! I'm not really a good influence when it comes to home decor. I say if you love it {and can afford it}, get it!
That price is to hard to pass up.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Please stop by my blog for a visit if you get a chance.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

The answer is "no"! I am also a toile gal and have plenty of it in our home. My hubby even has to sleep in out toile girly room. I think your toile is fabulous!

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

I love toile too! And your blue and yellow loveseats!
I think the chair and ottoman is a great deal and you can always get it reupholstered if you get tired of it. A piece from EA can last forever!
