a celebration of design, C for yourself

friday, foibles, france, fabric electric cord

Countless friends have questioned how I could go to Europe

this summer and travel by myself….


An overnight ferry from Rosslare, Ireland to Roscoff, France

meant a private room, a new country, freedom to walk about,

and people watch all for the price of a hotel room


I was constantly wondering, how could I…

recreate a light I spotted in the jam store

So I googled braided fabric electric wire and find out not only can you buy  color cord  by the foot,


Color Cord

but I must also think like Martha Stewart who features fabric wire in her September issue

Personally, I like the small brass fitting at the ceiling in my photo and am still searching

Fabric Wire

And now a long weekend to complete a project

Enjoy yours,
