My Houndstooth Obsession

I love yellow, black, and white. Especially when its with Houndstooth!!

I love this bedding from Delia's!

The Curtains are from Delia's too!!

I just love this chair.

I posted this photo forever ago. I know its busy,..but man its FUN!!!! And look at the yellow!!!!!!!!

I even love clothes in the Houndstooth!! Sadly I do not own one thing with the Houndstooth pattern on it.


This is my favorite thing in the Houndstooth pattern that I have found.


Its bedding from Walmart. I like it because it has the Houndstooth pattern, but its not BUSY looking. This bedding is around $40.00!!! That's my kind of price range. I know alot of people don't like Walmart,...but they are really getting better about the products they carry. I love the prices too. Just like IKEA and Target. :) I hope to put some Houndstooth in my decor somewhere. I just haven't decided where yet......Of course my husband hates it. lol

  1. I love it too and can totally see it in your decor. I know you will use it in moderation. The first pic with the houndstooth mixed with the soft floral is genius. Don't think I would've thought of that. And I think it looks absolutely smashing with yellow and white.

    Of course, then you will need another outfit ala Urban Outfitters. Houndstooth mini, red tights and large red beads around your neck... I think you should start matching your outfits to your decor...

    Can't wait to see the future posts of the marvelous entertaining you will be doing.

  2. I swear I'm not judging -- which obviously isnt' the best way to start a comment... :( but if you really want to know why folks frown on walmart, take a look at this: http://www.coopamerica.org/programs/rs/profile.cfm?id=306

    it's not just products, it's that they really are bad for our world. sweat shop labor, discrimination against women (both women buying over the counter birth control, and women working in their company who are passed over for promotions), destroying mom-and-pop businesses.. those are the biggies.. there are other things too.

    I'm sorry, I don't mean to get all political, I just wanted to provide some more info if you wanted it.

    I'm not a big fan of the houndstooth.. but damn, i'm pretty smitten with the bedding in that first picture! That yellow and the florals are just the right contrast.

  4. Thanks everybody.

    Its cool Amy,..I understand,..trust me your not the only one who has said bad about walmart. I already knew all that,...but I don't have a huge income,..so I have to shop there. I have friends who have worked for them,...and they don't say its that bad. But I do agree with everything you say. I buy from everywhere, if I see something I love.

    thanks for the comments... :)

  8. Take a look at the zooty tooth Flor tiles. You could design an area rug using them as the border.
