Found Furniture.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately - computer woes!  While I was without my computer for a while I found these fabulous swivel chairs at the end of someone's driveway!  My mom and I pulled over and loaded up the wagon with these two dirt covered beauties while driving home from the pumpkin patch.  After hosing them down we discovered a pair of super cute swivel chairs!

I think they will be as good as new with a paint job and a new cushion!

I love a project!

Last but not least, our original mission - pumpkins for one dollar - my mom knows where to find the deals!

A Few of My Favorite Things.

A few of my favorite things at the moment.

A sneak peak into someone's collection of dishes and cookbooks always makes me happy.

A gorgeous gold cuff with a bow.
I always have a soft spot for ribbons and bows.

Love these chain stitch handbags and pillows from Virginia Johnson.


Love the pop of color on this fireplace!

Necklace made of an acorn dipped in gold.

Or a keychain if you prefer!  So beautiful!

I want these chairs upholstered in Mexican Otomi fabric!

Super cute paintings of dogs by Rifle Design - including a pug with a bowtie!

What are your favorite things these days?

Reading and Sewing.

All I want to do lately is read and sew.

Which explains my absence - my apologies!  I tend to bury myself in whatever activity I jump into.

Wishing I had my very own cabin by the lake to escape to like this one!

With a lovely nook like this to lounge about with a good cup of coffee and a book.  Sometimes you just have to escape the real world for a little while - if only to find new inspiration for the moment you decide to jump back in to your life.
