I found out on Friday my wee little booth space at Edmond Antiques was photographed for the latest newspaper ad coming out on Thursday! How fun is that?
I'm drunk with joy! :)
As incredible as it is for me, today marks my 900th post. I first began blogging back in January 2009 so this December I'll complete four years of on-line journaling. If I'm being honest here, I'm wondering just what, if anything, I have left to share with you that I haven't already yapped about many, many times before...
Last week I snagged this wonderful vintage French Provincial Settee (or love-seat) at our local thrift store. Even though the old piece has been reupholstered with a horrible country blue Herculon (with pink braiding no less!) the bones are fantastic and the newly replaced cushions are in perfect shape! The price was so far below it's value and so it was one of those no-brain-er purchases. About $50! Crazy, huh? I snapped this picture just before taking my Miss Mollie for a walk...that's why she has her harness and leash on... She is such a silly dog!!!!
Now...my cottatge white
dream plan is to hunt down a soft white Trigger or a medium weight canvas-style fabric to reupholster the settee in.
Nothing but white.
Won't it be just the dreamiest thing once it's madeover?
I can do this style of work so it shouldn't take me too long once I begin...just need to make a place to work as my Mr. AGPMan's shop is a bit too dusty for white fabric! Anyway, in place of the cushion cording I'd like to add tiny (truly petite!) reverse pleat ruffles and then double-welt cording for the outside trim. Not sure yet. Also haven't decided if I will paint this piece a matching soft white and gently distress it OR leave it dark wood. Depends on whether or not I end up selling it or keeping it!
(I'm leaning towards painting it, of course!!!!)
I'm off to add more new things to my booth space and then this afternoon I'll be working on new things for my website! I have my Miss K in tow with me until Friday and we have lots and lots of fun things planned today even though it's a working-week for me!!!
Hope your day is equally as wonderful!
Love to you...
