Latest Project

*Head shaking* That would be Kayu after I brought my good find home. I found this baby for $8 at goodwill and couldn't resist the fun curves. I debated between a bright yellow and tiffany blue color. I am glad I went with the blue because it matches the duvet cover I picked up for C.
