Aging is beautiful and gray hair is not only beautiful, but something to be proud of. After all you've earned all those gray or white hairs. Stand up and say, "I'm gray and proud of it!" Better yet, "I'm a senior citizen and PROUD of it!" This blog is in honor of all the aging, graying, baby boomer, senior citizens, Grandmothers, Nana's, Grandma's and Grannies out there. If you're young and gray-haired or white-haired this blog is for you, too.

New Festive Designs For The Christmas Holiday Season




I love decorating my home all year for everyday, for various seasons and for various holidays as well as decorating for all sorts of parties.  Over the winter months I decided to re-design one of my "Gray Is Beautiful" custom fabric designs featuring Petronella The Birdhouse Lady, Doug The Handy Dandy Gentleman and Sweetheart Faith.

I ended up loving the re-design so much I decided to create two coordinating custom fabric designs to go along with this design and to use these three designs in my new  Linda Walsh Originals Designs Gallery.

My three new custom fabric designs are shown below:

Blue Bell Sara's Re-Designs - Even More Elegant!

The "Grays" and I just LOVE designing fabrics and love it when some of the graphics we created for other purposes end up creating wonderful fabric designs. Such was the case with some of the graphics we created for the original products in our Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery.  Well, over the winter the "Grays" were busy re-designing their "Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery" and ended up re-designing the bulk of our  Gray Is Beautiful Fabric Designs Collection.

"Blue Bell Sara" and her sorority sister "Swing Sweetly Annabelle" are two of the newest dolls from my  "The Long Sleek Sitting Doll Series!"  Both are elegantly attired and are dressed to the hilt.

Both dolls belong to the "Only Elegance Alpha Phi E" sorority as did both their mothers and several of their grandmothers before them.  To say that beauty and elegance isn't expected of them is an understatement.

Blue Bell Sara knew that re-designing her fabrics was a tall order as they were already as elegant as they could be.  However, given her driven nature she dove right in and, to her surprise,  came up with re-designs that were even more elegant than the originals.

Shown below are Blue Bell Sara's re-designed Victorian fabric designs. She hopes you like them.

Sweetheart Faith's New Winter Fabric Re-Designs

The "Grays" and I just LOVE designing fabrics and love it when some of the graphics we created for other purposes end up creating wonderful fabric designs. Such was the case with some of the graphics we created for the original products in our Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery.  Well, over the winter the "Grays" were busy re-designing their "Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery" and ended up re-designing the bulk of our  Gray Is Beautiful Fabric Designs Collection.

"Sweetheart Faith!" is just the sweetest snow-lady you'd ever want to meet. She just loves her life, loves being outside, and especially loves being in the garden.

Even though she's been growing flowers for decades she's still amazed by their beauty. There isn't a flower or plant that she can't identify or any flower or plant that she can't nurse back to health.

She has quite the "green thumb" for a snow-lady and is the envy of all the "ladies" in her Victorian gardening club. If you've got a gardening question - ask "Sweetheart Faith!"

So, she wasn't surprised when Linda asked her if she could help her with re-designing some of her fabrics.  No problem for Sweetheart Faith.  If something needs a little tweaking she can nurse it back to perfection.  Plants or fabric designs - there is no difference in her mind.

Shown below are Sweetheart Faith's re-designed Victorian winter fabric designs. She hopes you like them.

Petronella and Doug's Re-Designed Fabrics - No Time At All!


The "Grays" and I just LOVE designing fabrics and love it when some of the graphics we created for other purposes end up creating wonderful fabric designs. Such was the case with some of the graphics we created for the original products in our Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery.  Well, over the winter the "Grays" were busy re-designing their "Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery" and ended up re-designing the bulk of our  Gray Is Beautiful Fabric Designs Collection.

"Petronella, The Birdhouse Lady!" loves fancy Victorian birdhouses and loves fancy, Victorian fabrics.  So, when Linda suggested she and Doug re-design their fabrics she was a little hesitant.

She likes perfection and will take as much time as is necessary to achieve that.  Doug, on the other hand doesn't like projects that take a lot of time.  However, he loves to please his wife and surprised her by agreeing to re-design their fabrics - no matter how much time it takes.

Lucky for them it didn't take days on end to do.

Shown below are Petronella and Doug's re-designed Victorian winter fabric designs. She hopes you like them.

Susan Renee's Re-Designs - Who Knew!

The "Grays" and I just LOVE designing fabrics and love it when some of the graphics we created for other purposes end up creating wonderful fabric designs. Such was the case with some of the graphics we created for the original products in our Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery.  Well, over the winter the "Grays" were busy re-designing their "Gray Is Beautiful Products Gallery" and ended up re-designing the bulk of our  Gray Is Beautiful Fabric Designs Collection.

Susan is a big, big, big snob. Can't you tell that already?  She wants to be called "Susan Renee" and not just "Susan."

Well, whoop-de-do, the rest of the "Gray's" say!"

Susan Renee is extremely demanding, articulate, knowledgeable, well-read, wealthy and aggressive. She has a mind for business and knows where every penny of her fortune is.

And, if you want to inherit some of that then you have to earn it. Don't try to contradict her or disagree with her for "Susan Renee" is always right.

So, Linda was a little apprehensive in thinking about asking Susan Renee if she wanted to re-design some of her fabric designs.  After all they hadn't been re-designed for awhile.

Linda was expecting Susan Renee to question her as to why her fabrics would need to be re-designed.  After all, they were already perfect.

However, Linda was surprised when Susan Renee said, "It's about time don't you think?"

Linda had forgotten that Susan Renee had a mind for business and knew that you need fresh re-designs from time to time to keep things new and customers engaged.

Shown below are Susan Renee's re-designed fabric designs. She knows they're perfect once again and hopes you like them.

Sweet Julianna is a sweet and shy young primitive woman. She doesn't want to intrude. She just wants to help where ever she can.

She loves cleaning, gardening, sewing, crafting, decorating and cooking. She's extremely creative and oh so clever.

She was "Martha Stewart" before Martha was.  So, you can imagine how thrilled she was when she heard the "Gray's" would be re-designing some of their custom fabrics.

Shown below are Sweet Julianna's re-designed primitive fabric designs. She hopes you like them.
