Hi all, hope you had a fabulous Mother's Day!
We did here!
Here is the big reveal of my chair makeover. I love the way it turned out.
Who knew a painters drop cloth could look so good. As you can see, I got a pillow done to match. My slipcover lady did a fantastic job, as well as getting the job done quite fast. I think the look is so fresh and summery!
Our trek to the Rose Bowl yesterday was really fun too! I got the 2 grain sack pillows in the photos, and this really cool antique pleating/ruffling machine. It still works, and I will use it to pleat paper, and ribbon for my crown making. It also looks cool. I was told this is how they pleated and ruffled shirt collars in the old days.
I wanted to show you the beautiful color on these roses I received from my daughter, son in law, and baby Jake yesterday!
My week is starting out busy as usual, with lampshade making and embellishing three crosses for someone. I'm also working on some stamped silverware. First on the agenda is a trip to the chiropractor this afternoon. My back is out!!! This is a periodic occurrence for me. Once it's back in place, I'm good to go. I have a slight curve to my spine, and this tends to throw things out of whack sometimes. Goes with my wacky personality!
Have a great week!!
Chat again soon.
