when i first saw her home and the clothes she designed i new i found another
kindred soul! I thought wow l love all this gypsy stuff because I have always been
a gypsy girl at heart. My idol since i was 9years old is Stevie Nicks and if Stevie has
not found Magnolia Pearl than someone better tell her about her stuff. It is total Stevie.
This is a photo out of Romantic Homes on the motor home Robin Brown of Magnolia
Pearl owns. It is so cool! I love all the colours and layers of different textures

Magnolia Pearl was first famous for her cool carpet bags made from old blankets.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw one. I said to myself that carpet bag
material looks like the bedspread I have from my Italian grandmother!
Today I wanted to share with all of you another treasure of my grandmothers.
This velvet bedspread was so popular back in Italy. Thankfully grandma brought a
few with her when she moved here. This blanket she passed on to my mother who
then gave it to me.
whenever my mother would bring it out of her cedar chest. I used to call it
my "naked babies blanket" and roll all over it!
Sadly alot of the fringe has worn off.
her bed...this was just recently purchased at the thrift shop!!! I also saw it
in my new book The French Inspired Home...alot has to be said for this thrift shopping!
