My friend had this sweet little vanity chair at her shop the other day, and of course i picked it up and hauled it outta there...
I swear she must look for things she thinks i'll like when she's out shopping, and just wait to see when i'll spot it in the shop and grab
when i walk in she probably starts counting
5 - 4 - 3 - 2- 1
bingo! she spotted it!
I'm pretty sure i'm her best customer!
Here is the chair with a little makeover
Recently i was at another cute little shop in town, and found this vintage tablecloth, i think it is barkcloth fabric, what exactly is that anyway???
It has the most wonderful texture, and i couldn't resist the flowers and cheerful colors.
It was a little tattered and worn in spots, but i just couldn't leave it...
Why does the barkcloth feel like that, why is it so yummy!?
As i paid for it i was thinking,
i don't need this,
i don't know what i'm gonna do with it,
why am i buying it... etc...
...you've probably been there...
anyway, it wasn't long after buying the tablecloth that i ended up with the sweet little chair
the pairing was meant to be
it was fate
sigh... so romantic
is it mentally ill to fall in love with "things" like chairs and fabric???
here is the before
here is me draping the tablecloth on the chair getting the idea
is that how you spell draping, or is it drapping... why does that word always look so weird?
and, here it is painted, dressed up, and ready to use as spare seating anywhere!
that fabric just makes me so happy every time i look at it!
it's funny... i don't even like red
but i love this
scroll down you'll see the edge of it
and you'll be at the most beautiful blog ever!
anyway, hmmmmm, maybe i do like red
So it's my daughter Ellie's birthday again
and time for another pansie cake!
so easy to make
and so unlike the purple penis cake her friends gave her
lord help me
I was a little short on pansies this year, so I went to Home Depot and stole every one of those pansies
just chose the best colors to match yellow icing, plucked a few here and there and left as pretty as ya please
heeeyyyy, it was for a good cause ya'll!
see how i justified that
i'm a total criminal sometimes
anyway, Ellie turned 23 April 15th
and she's finally almost sane!!!
well, except for a few exceptions
and that's pretty much all i've got for now!
