Hall Pass

My tiny Hallway needed a little love, so I created a Vignette to incorporate a lovely painting by my favorite artist (Hubby).
I love the Soft and Shabby Colors.

New Pretties

Lowes was full of Drought Resistant Beauties,
 and I had been meaning to find some pretty Suculents for this container I found at the Flea Market in Ventura on our last visit. The perfect marriage.

 Have a wonderful week, one and all.

Frugal Friday:
I purchased these pretty fabric pieces 20 years ago, not quite knowing what they were. They are true Vintage Bark Cloth, I also picked up another set in gorgeous cotton Vintage Fabric with roses on them, sewn the same way. After taking them home I realized they were chair toppers. They have worked perfectly on my two different sized Bistro Chairs, and were a steal even back then. So happy I have hung onto them for all these years.

Cottage Style Gardens:
With Spring in the air it was time to pretty up my patio. This is just outside our French Doors in the Living Room.
I am a sucker for floral prints and these pretty Cath Kidston Slips are perfect for Spring/Summer Seasons.
The chairs we use over and over, and simply give them a fresh spray of white paint once Winter is over.
Thanks for stopping by

A Romantic Look For A Sofa

A Romantic Soft Look For My Sofa
Had a little fun creating a magazine cover with this photo of my sofa I gave it a little romance by adding Rachel Ashwell's pretty British Rose Pillow Slips.

Here's the magazine cover, coincidentally it already mentioned sofas on the cover, even though there is a typo. I don't mind, it's just a bit of fun

Customizing Off The Rack Slip Covers

Today I'm sharing my  $95 Chair

We purchased two wing back chairs from our neighbors last summer, and after a good shampoo added one of our favorite off the rack slipcovers.
I had the seat cushion customized by a seamstress so that when we sat on the chairs we wouldn't have to re tuck the slips.

Budget Breakdown:
Chair $15
Slip $30
Seat Cushion Cover $50
Not bad for such a gorgeous chair!
