ga ga for cotton

Obsessed is probably more accurate. For cotton stalks. I searched every store and the entire world wide web. Loss of sleep I tell you. Oh, Joy posted this lovely wedding that has natural cotton everywhere. I love it. LOVE LOVE.

One completely average normal day—at the mall—there before my very eyes was the most amazing window display overflowing with bundles of cotton. After threats of violence and a donation to the store's sponsored charity, I came home with a box of nearly destroyed stalks. After hours and hours of painful cleaning and gluing, here is
my pride and joy.

Not to bad, eh? On to the next bedroom decor project.....

I absolutely LOVE THIS. I wish every corner of my house looked like this :) Fantastic work as always, Amanda!

Haha! I absolutely love when something you've dearly wanted drops into your lap unexpectedly. Cotton is a creative idea!

Hi - just stumbled over your blog (love it) and I know you posted this awhile ago, but if you are ever in the need for more cotton stalks, the only place I've been able to find them is here. You have to sign up for an account, but it's easy - I just put "Other" and "Crafts" when they asked me why I was there :) I love cotton stalks, really want some for our house, just unsure if the cats will chow down on them or not, ha!
