Stripes, stripes, stripes ..... 
in the most fabulous colors and patterns are at
in Chelsea!!!

Saturday, I was on the hunt for pillows, 
my favorite "acessorations,"
when I found this delightful soupçon of style, 
from the South of France ....
on West 19th Street!!!

Owner's
are delightful hosts,
unfurling endless bolts of fabrics ...
so that I could pick the perfect stripes 
for summer pillows .....
& I did!!!

There's nothing more sublime to the "accessorator" ....
than "made-to-order"!!!

Also available are outdoor umbrellas, dish towels, aprons,
make-up bags, espadrilles, napkins,
& more!!!!

he sent this picture!!!
