Do you believe in magic....

Well, I sure do, however...you know me and my love of the weathered, decrepit finish of these old relics...just how far will I go to improve the look...be afraid...

I love the old ticking used in the lining to hold in the horse hair and excelsior wood shavings...


One of the things I like about these two chairs is the fact that they're 'big butt' chairs, they have a wider than normal seat, making them more comfortable to sit on...right...

However, this chair appears to have had too many big butts in her day...

A new addition to my room at Sisters'...my daughter finally has a candle presence up there.
Her soy candles in the new recycled tins...MADE IN AMERICA...what a novel idea...
are now upstairs at Sister's in a cubby that I want to thank the girls for hauling up there for me!
The scents available right now are...
Lilac, Peach, Froot Loops, Chestnuts & Brown Sugar, & Australian Bamboo Grass...which
is now my new fave!!! The soap is to die for!!!

I'm still in love with the dove greys...sigh...

and my lil' blue chairs fit in perfectly with the coming Spring..
at Sister's Garden and Bloom!

OK Spring...we're waiting!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM...LOVE YOU!!!

You have such a good eye Sharon. Can't wait to see the chair. I kind of like the stripe idea.

Did I spy a settee in one of the photos that matches those chairs? Love that burlap swag you hung - your area looks super inviting, Sharon!
