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!

Just Have to Keep Her

largefrenchchairafterSo here is another french chair makeover. I actually took a before photo of her!  She was another auction find, $6 buy to be exact, and once I got an adorable wing back for $.50!  (I will show you that one soon) And sometime this year I will have to blog about everything I have learned about the auction world, but a girl can’t give away all of her secrets right away! Auctions are truly one of my new loves, but more about that later.  So here she is and I think I have to keep her.  But don’t tell my husband :). I will trade her for one of my other chairs. I am sure I will sell her one day, but for now she will live at my house. I have been sewing like a mad women lately and will post some pics of all of those little projects soon.

And if I ever get my house clean, I will take more pics of all the projects I have planned for my house this year. In the final hours of 2012 count your blessings this year and toss out the bad for God has plans for us all in 2013!

P.S.  I will be selling grain sack pillows on my etsy site this year, just like the one shown above!
