Fabric of our lives

Since my new years resolution was to slowdown and enjoy the little things; I'll share with you something new in our home that makes me do just that.
The graphic print table runner that now adorns our hutch was a gift from my sister-in-law for Christmas. Kristen has been globe trotting to and from Africa for close to a year working for an organization called New Perimeter. Most recently, on her trip to Namibia, she brought us back this beautiful handmade runner and it makes me pause every time I see it.
Listening to the stories of the women that Kristen has been exposed to through her job, I'm reminded to be grateful for all that I have. I'm also thankful for having such admirable family members- check out New Perimeters website to learn about their inspiring projects. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

LOVE the table runner. My Mom is most obsessed with pineapples!

This is so beautiful. I love that it came from Africa, I am sure it helped a local woman. It looks so nice on your table.

The fabric is gorgeous and, may I say, nice 'tablescaping!'
