Playing with my toys...

These two chairs have been floating around my house for a long time awaiting a fresh coat of paint and new fabric on the seats...did I do good...?

When a piece of furniture has sat around long enough and hasn't sold, you take another look at color and fabric and tastes in decorating...
time for change...
These chairs were once red with old velvet seats, it wasn't the old red, just red.
We'll see if they sell now...maybe off to Sisters' or save for the new shop...but that would mean they'll float around in my house for two months...boy do I need a garage slash shop at home...

On a whim yesterday...have you noticed, the older I get the more whims I get, it's because I'm finally taking the work out of the work...
Dad's always reminding me...
'you ain't no spring chicken anymore'
and that dragging around all that heavy stuff should be kept to a low roar...
yeah, yeah, yeah...
hey, it's my job...and did I mention I love my job!!!
Anyway, my whim, I stopped at Good Will, as there where no storm sirens breaking silence or doom and gloom from above...
I found this sweet lil' tri-fold mirror,
cute huh...
Well now it's sitting in my house awaiting the new space to arrive...
this is gonna be tense...

I LOVE this spoon mobile...found at Sisters', so now my mind is reeling as to how can I work with the old coffee can full of old silverware and windchimes...hmmmm...

Remember this cool old piece...

TAH DAH...
see what I mean about a coat of fresh paint...
I know you all in the biz know exactly what I'm talkin' about...
UP TO DATE...right!
This has brought back into style a piece that was taken to auction and sold for a song...
hey, we're good huh...recycling at it's finest!!!

The chairs look wonderful and that cabinet...2die4...NOW!
One good thing about getting older I've found is I don't care what other people think or say. I can now speak my mind, do as I please and to heck with it...right?

I would love to be able to come over and play.... Haven't been in the mood. I think today I am going to start playing with glass again.
