Just try to convince me that stripes are trendy.
I won't be hearin' that because I have spent
the better part of my life
MAD FOR STRIPES.
Some of us just
will not grow tired of their magic.
Just look how Red Niddle takes a simple ticking
and pairs it with far out lovely to create
these Swedish dala horse softies.

Penny Marks of Fairy Tale
Do you have a stripey scarf that's your favorite?
I'm thrilled to share mine today--it's a romantic
handmade lovely by Penny Marks of Fairy Tale 13.
The navy with white stripe seems to go with everything,
and the knit fabric feels dreamy.
Isa Kay Boutique
Do you have a fever for stripes?
Don't you think these festive retro
straws from Isa Kay Boutique
make an excellent low-cost
These stripey linens from West Elm are
calling my name, and to me they would
work for almost any room scheme...
play up the circus feel
in a kid's room, or for a sophisticated
guest room, limit the palette
to grey and white.
If it weren't for blogland, I would have no idea
how many incredibly creative uses there are for
colorful baker's twine...know what I'm talking about?
Visit The Twinery's blog and you will be
enlightened and geared up for the holidays

(Forgot to include this one from Penny
as well as it is a head turner.)
Found any cute handmade plush animals lately?
Well this pink striped cutie is mine all mine
from the fabulous Komoriuta.
The little felt ears and nose
will trigger that "i'm mellllllttttting"
So it's like this.
For years I have swooned for stripes,
and if they happen to be particularly trendy
at the moment, great...but I think they have
lasting value because of their simplicity
Any stripey goodness here that floats your boat?
