Don’t you love the carpet above? I have been seeing this tumbling block pattern all over the web. On the walls:

This pattern has been used for years by quilters. It is made to look three dimensional through color placement. It is really important to have distinct color groupings of light, medium and dark to create the effect of tumbling blocks. A perfect example of this is in the tile above.block quilt

How about a Jonathan Adler pillow?:

What do you think of the tumbling block pattern? I think they are going to gain in popularity because just imagine all the beautiful color combinations that can be made mixing different colors together! Have you noticed this pattern anywhere?

I had to share with you how my $15.00 bookcase from the local Barn Sale:

Came out after cleaning up and painting:

I used a blue paint I pulled from the fabric I found for the kitchen window treatments. The bookcase fit perfectly in this little space:

I am still shopping for the perfect pictures to hang above. I love using my special little items for accessories.

Not bad for $15.00! Love a bargain. Especially when I get to paint!

Here are a couple of my Fall decorating vignettes:
