Select from mountains of gorgeous fabric, yarn, patterns, magazines (like my favorite – Selvedge from the UK. Drool!), and anything else you fancy. You can even shop for gifts for a creative friend. Tuck in this gorgeous Japanese quilting book with a small stack of fabric, and you’ve created a really memorable present for a special friend. You can never go wrong by giving things that will inspire their creativity!

Shop Fosters to Save 15%!

Everyone loves Foster’s, a popular shopping destination for both Philly residents due to their great brick ‘n mortar location and cooking classes, and for the rest of us who like to shop them online. They have a lot to choose from, so spend some time cruising their site, you’ll find everything from toys to furniture, faux chirping birds, and cookware. I love that they carry Umbra?s OH Chair designed by one of my favorite designers, Karim Rashid. See how great these look in the dining room below… And make sure you check out their bar code welcome mat, another fave of mine.

Want to save some dough on goodies from Foster’s? From now until December 19th, decor8 readers can take 15% off of their order.

Flickr find alert! Check out this photo from the uber talented 10 cent designer, who has an amazing eye for design, a gorgeous home, and yes, this is her dining room and those are the Umbra OH chairs . Fabulous huh? Click here to view more of her lovely home. At $55 each (and now 15% off of that), you can add these chairs to your dining room on a budget and they’ll look wonderful – clean, modern, functional, and with so many colors available – they’ll even match your decor. You can opt to order only one for your office to use as a guest chair or purchase a few for times when you need to meet with clients. They’re stylish and the price is right, don’t you think?
