Wow, this might be the longest I have gone between blog posts! I think things are going to slow down, and then never do…Warp speed is my new norm I think! So many fun things have been going on with my little business. But I wanted to stop and share this sweet little chair I finished a few weeks ago. It sold at the Chartreuse and Co. Market Days this last weekend. And to be honest I am a little sad to see her go. But alas I can not keep every piece that I remake, but the couple who bought her were so sweet, and I know she will be well taken care of. I think she had a pretty dramatic change from her original outfit. I brought her home on Christmas Eve, and wanted to finish her look over Christmas, but time does have away of getting away from a person so she sat and waiting patiently until two weeks ago. Her new outfit is hungarian linen, but the best part about this fabric is that it had a small monogram on one of the corners. mmchair1Which you can now see is on the arm cover of the chair. In its previous life it was probably used as a household linen and then sent out to be washed. But now it is married to this lovely chair and I hope they have a long happy life together!

New Year, New Beginnings…

newyear4

Wow, I just looked at my last blog post and it was from mid-December! Ummm, didn’t seem that long ago…This year is off to a crazy fun start! I have upholstered, slipcovered, and painted so much furniture the last few weeks my hands are paying the price. But I wanted to take some time to share some of my latest projects and additions to my home. I was glancing around my home today and it struck me how much my decor has changed in the last year. It has changed so much I don’t think one of the rooms that I have photographed in my home tour looks anything like the picture now! So I guess I need to take some update photos.

I have so many fun things to show you, but here are some of my favorites. TheUnion Jack pillow was almost too sweet for me to sell at the barn in January. But I told myself I could just make another one if it did sell. I also plan on making a union jack ottoman in the same color pattern and fabric. I have slipcovered three settee this last year, which I have to say I surprised myself. Never did I think I would be able to tackle a project of that size, and feel confidant enough to sell it!

2014 could be a year of big changes for my little business. God has placed people and opportunities in my life that I never thought would be possible. I am also gearing up for the Lucketts fair in May, which hopefully will be as fantastic of experience as the last two years. Hopefully more details to come.

I wish I would have taken a before pic of the chair. It really needed a make-over. But with a little paint and light blue velvet she is ready for her new life.

Finally I wanted to share a new addition to my home that I absolutely adore. I have wanted a white slipcovered couch for some time now, and finally I have one to complete my living room. My friend Amanda did a great job with the custom slipcover. You can see her other creations in her Etsy shop too, Ruby Twine.

 

Many blessing to you this New Year!
