Toile Party

Calling all Toile-Nuts... today is the much anticipated, long awaited, and ever to be referred to in history as The Toile Party of 2009. Do you have a toile post to share? A favorite pillow, or blankie or hankie?
Kick off your boots, grab some of that chocolate that my ShabbyNest friend Wendy is passing out... don't you love our high quality party eats? I'm currently drinking a MetroMint water (how posh) which I believe compliments chocolate in a perfect way. Oh, I'm the Pretty Organizer by the way. I'm a homemak'n mother of 6 and you can meet me here.
I've put on my best hostess apron for you and hope you feel welcome here at the PrettyOrganized Palace. You can Feel free to browse around the Palace rooms and PLEASE visit all of my palace guests while you're here... because they're fabulous. This is a star studded event and my rockstar blogging friends Wendy, Nester, Kimba, Melissa, Julia, Rhoda have graciously allowed me to open for them... so go pay them a visit.
Here are the party Rules:
  • Please post a related Toile Post
  • Only use the perma-link for THAT post... no general blog addresses please. (Perma-link is the specific address for your post. Get it by clicking on your toile post title, then copy the url.
  • Remember to promote my Pretty Palace please. Please link back to this post in your Toile post so guests can return back here and party hardy!
  • Visit these fabulous blogs and leave your encouraging comments. Remember we're toile-aholics and need your support!
On to the party! Hope you enjoy your Toile Tour of Blogland!
Thanks for coming!

I only have one small 3-2'peice of toile fabric that has been glued onto the front of my corner cabinet, and I just didn't think it was post worth, but now I see your boots and I remember that I have a toile bag. hmmmm...where is it, I ask the organizer?

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Hey Lady! All linked up and ready to play!

Mom in High Heels said...

Hi! So glad you threw a toile party! Can't wait to visit the blogs. I have a few things that HAVE to be done first, but I'll be back. That apron is fabulous, wish I had a bod like that form! I used to have that fabric on a small bench. Think I may still have it somewhere...Have a great day!

Love it--thanks for the party! I was a toile virgin in the sense that I was not aware that there are so many different types, styles, colors, etc of toile!! This has been a Toile Awareness Party for me! Love your blog; keep up the super cute posts of the kitchen makeover! Looks like you may live close to where I do--it is a small world after all!

I love the boots!

solomi558 said...

Is there anyone who doesn,t like toile? I let my friend talk me into having a white bedroom so I could use blue, pink or grey toile, I can see the sense in it but I will never get over scraping off the Laura Ashley blue toile wallpaper. I could really do with counselling

Cena @ Unexpected Necessities said...

Love the toile nursery! I linked to my little girl's Paris/poodle bedroom.

Phaedra : ) said...

I found some pics of some New Orleans Toile items that are lovely.

Tiffany said...

Somehow I messed up (#40) and linked to a different post of mine. Feel free to delete #40 if you know how. I re-linked (# 70-somehting) correctly. This was a cute idea - thanks!

Bummer, I missed it too! I've had a toile sofa since 1994 and I still love it. Looks like you had a great party. I need to pay more attention!

tami said...

Too late to the party, par for moi.
Anyway, if you visit, click on home tour label and visit our master bedroom. I found this toile in a Ralph Lauren Children's wallpaper book.
It's been 7 years and I still love it!
