I’m joining the Feathered Friends Party today. Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage is the lovely hostess – please stop by her blog to see who’s participating! I took a little trip around the cottage to snap pictures of all things bird-related. Let’s see….how about some real bird nests?
Hello, Happy Monday! We all have them – office chairs. To my mind, they are necessary but unattractive. After my recent post about my creative space, I started obsessing about my ugly office chair (which I conveniently left out of my photos.) What could I do that would pretty it up but cost nothing?
I went through my linens and found 2 pillowcases I thought might work. One of them was embroidered by my grandmother and has her standard hand-crocheted edging. The other is a battenburg lace pillow sham that I used many years ago.
And there is my seat cover! It costs nothing and will do nicely until I actually make a slip cover. Both pillowcases can be taken off quite easily for washing. This looks a lot better than the nubby grey fabric that magically attracted every stray dog hair. I may cut out the interior panel on the Battenburg lace case at some point – or I may not. I think this suits the look of my little studio nook nicely.
The Saturday mail brought this little package from Amy. I won her giveaway last week. If you are unfamiliar with her blog, you must visit her! Besides being enormously talented, she is a wonderful person. She inspires me on a daily basis.
Shall we open it?
It says “We shall not know unless we begin.”
Have a great Sunday.
