Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

I picked up this chair at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for about $7--thinking it would be a great piece to refurbish and sell in our antique booth at Keepsakes. It was painted bright yellow and had a kind of stripey, woven fabric seat in oranges/golds, and browns. I liked it very much as it was; but because it has such lovely, classic lines, I decided to paint it a nice black lacquer color for a more formal look. And instead of using black and white toile fabric for the seatcover as originally planned, I opted for the pink cabbage roses on black fabric. I don't know why. I just have this sense that pink is going to come back-and though I'm not a frou-frou kind of girl, I think I might be ready for a little pink. What do you think? (PS, the chair still sits in my foyer. May have to find another one for Keepsakes!)

You did a beautiful job on the chair. Georgeous fabric.
