nineandsixteen Yesterday's rained out Saturday was the perfect time to attempt making a Roman shade. I really want to make them for the office but I didn't dare cut into that gorgeous Althea fabric without a practice run. It was very simple to make and my sewing skills are just a hair above knowing how to turn on the machine. Next up the office... (Any interest in a tutorial? There are a lot out there and I'm quite sure my techniques aren't exactly correct...?) 2d

nineandsixteen A while ago someone asked me what my favorite ticking fabric is and I didn't have an answer. Now that I'm picking out fabric for the wingback going in our office it seemed a good time to dig into this classic fabric. It seems like there shouldn't be that much difference, ticking is ticking. Right? Wrong. Some have a more homespun country feel while others a bit more modern look. Some are better for upholstery and others are more light weight. I'm waiting on 5 more samples to compare with those I already have... I foresee a "ticking talk" blog post in the near future. Do u have a favorite you've used? Please share... #nineandsixteenhome 4d

  •   heatherwesthead I have loved following this conversation today! I remember the old Martha days- I used to tape episodes on VHS while I was at school and you can find some old Martha by Mail products on ebay. So fun to peruse So happy to have found like-minded people on IG! 7d
  •   lesliesullivan1982 I have both of those MS books, still as relevant as when published. I watch the old Martha via Dvd's I purchased. All taped in her Connecticut studio and Turkey Hill 7d
  •   sd_bailey @nineandsixteen @jennysteffenshobick y'all got me looking back at old Martha videos. I used to love From Martha's Kitchen and the others. I found some great clips on transferware and collecting antiques. And a video of Ina doing a clambake in the kitchen. The table and chairs that they used for the table are perfection!!! 6d

nineandsixteen My eldest, Andrew, just posted a new video on his YouTube channel (I've put link in my profile for today). It's my very favorite of his so far. He recently watched Office Space and the old seasons of The Office - this is his version. You'll laugh - so funny! 🖥📽🖨🗄🗂 @ajf_studios 1w

nineandsixteen Someone please tell me the variety of this spectacular hydrangea that is in full bloom in April!! My neighbor planted it last fall, it was labeled something else so she is just as surprised by the massive blooms!! I'd love a couple for our garden if I could figure out what they are... Thank u!! 1w
  •   akiessling1 We used to have a couple of these. If I recall correctly, they grow like weeds and when you trim them they give off a sticky dust. So, even though the flowers are beautiful, they have some definite downsides. 1w
  •   cana_farms That's not a hydrangea--which I think others have cleared up. Viburnum. Common mistake. 1w
  •   devonfahner @nineandsixteen is the verdict Chinese Viburnum? So pretty 6d

nineandsixteen One more.. This @peterdunhamtextiles sham just might be my favorite! Heading off for another little Charlie's bedroom. I'm tossing around the idea of opening a small online shop - beautiful textiles used on pillows and lamp shades... Thought I'd ask here first if there is interest? The price point would be on the higher side, $250 and up/ pillow or lamp shade. Honest feedback, please. I adore using gorgeous textiles in the homes I help design and since pillows and lampshades don't require a ton of yardage, they are a great way to incorporate that unique custom look without breaking the bank. Thoughts? #nineandsixteenhome 2w
  •   jennyshobick Happy to lend any store advice - shoot me an email!! I will say I thought it would be A LOT easier... I am constantly on the search for pretty pillows at a good price for retail - why is it so hard?! You should come up with a solution and I'll buy them for my store!! 1w
  •   jennyshobick On that note, I may be ready to pull the trigger on shades, too... Still looking/debating on fabric! 1w
  •   nineandsixteen @jennyshobick I appreciate your generous soul! I sent u an IM via Instagram. Thanks, friend. 1w
  •   shedge6 Love the idea of fabric lampshades ... Such a fabulous touch!! 1w

nineandsixteen See? Custom fabric lamp shades can make all the difference! Bet you 100 bucks C doesn't even notice, but sometimes the little details in their rooms are more for the Mamas anyway. (Shade fabric from @stroheimfabrics ) #nineandsixteenhome 2w

nineandsixteen The smell of lilacs always make me think of Cape Cod. There was a small B+B in Brewster where Jimmy and I stayed a couple times when we lived in Boston that had the oldest lilac bushes I have ever seen. With enough blooms to scent the entire property, inside and out. I remember taking long bike rides together and the only smell was salt air and lilac. That should be a candle! 2w
  •   capecod19 This post put a big smile on my face! So lucky to call Cape Cod my home 2w
  •   feeldogs Me too, Tessa! My grandmother's house in Harwichport had them everywhere and the scent takes me back to my childhood no matter where I am. Enjoy! 2w
  •   jmmarden Maybe your next scent @jennysteffenshobick ?? :) 2w
  •   jennysteffenshobick @jmmarden I have lilac in right now! But the sea salt addition would be magic 1w

nineandsixteen Ina's roasted garlic & herb shrimp and a loaf of crusty bread for dinner. Can I just say how nice it was to be barefoot, glass of wine in hand, country music on, and cooking with the windows wide open? My kind of Saturday evening. This is how I imagine life is in Southern California everyday... 2w
  •   tenniskat That sounds like a perfect evening!!! All of it! I also love her roasted veggies with orzo and feta with roasted shrimp! Delicious! 2w

  •   heatherwesthead Beautiful color choice!! And, we had one of those chairs in our home office (which is also a sunroom) for awhile. It scared me. Now it's in the basement and we use an extra dining chair in the office, but I'm always looking for something prettier and more comfortable so I'm excited to see what you choose:) 3w
