My balancing act continues…. Since I am watching baby Brooklyn now 3 days a week , I have to be so much more disciplined…not as much junking…..which means re-purposing many of my items and lots and lots of you guessed it…. sewing.
I’ll be going to the barn this evening to try and finish up most of the major decorating, so that Wednesday evening and Thursday I can do all my “tweaking”. The barn sale at Matildas Mouse starts Friday morning…gates open at 9:30 and barn doors fly open at 10:00 sharp!!
When I was on my trip to Arizona…the one where we had to rent the trailer to bring back all my finds..you know the one that I don’t bring up to the hubby often.. ha ha…
Well, I have this wonderful little shop where I get the most fabulous fabric. As a matter of fact BALLARD DESIGNS carries this and the other fabric that I bought(pst , a little..secret, so you can’t tell….I pay just a tiny tiny fraction of BD price) so of course I had to buy a bolt of each…
This sweet ottoman I purchased in Arizona…you know the 1980’s moiré’ kind. I painted the legs….
and made a slipcover for it
The fabric is a heavy linen and the pattern is a French script
So what else can I put this great fabric on….
How about these sweet French chairs…(Arizona trailer riders….)
So I added some charming little ballerina ties
Here’s a close-up before the ties were added..I think the ties ground it a little, don’t you?
A fun little pocket pillow
And two more pillows……….
Holy cow! I still have so much fabric left that I find myself eyeing everything to see if I can give it a “do”….
I think I am so OCD that I am exhausting everyone in the house…..Including…..
Daisy, our 15 year old Golden, and chubby Mattie (the red baby) and Momma Kitty our Farrell (but,not so Farrell anymore) cat. Night, night babies..hummm maybe I can “re-do”their bed??…OCD I tell ya!! ha ha
I’ll take some pictures for White Wednesday and some glimpses of the Valentine’s show for all of you. Hope you’re having a great week so far!
