From drab to fab!!

I wanted to share my cute, little chair with everyone today....

I am so very excited about her :o)

My super talented friend, Elizabeth, seamstress-extraordinaire, made these slipcovers.
Didn't she do a wonderful job!?!

The chair was a hideous teal green before, and the ottoman was an old and faded plaid.

The striped material is actually bed sheets from the Simply Shabby Chic line at Target. The floral was from a discount fabric shop. They both can be thrown into that washing machine for a quick clean up.

Here is a close up of the skirt she added at the just looks cozy doesn't it?!

I would love to have them professionally reupholstered, however it's not in the budget or particularly practical at the moment.

This is my favorite spot in the whole house right now. When you walk in my front door, THIS is the happy chair the greets you!! I love to sit and read a book here after the little ones have gone to bed.

It is a very blustery day here in Georgia, but I hope you are warm and cozy!
Have a wonderful, wonderful week!!

2 for 1

I found this great rug while shopping at Walmart. I am using it in my bathroom. It is the perfect rug because it has the no-skid back, plus it is machine washable.....a must if you have little ones that tend to spill all kinds of crazy things!!

So, do you want to know the very best part about this rug (other than the super affordable price of $18)???? It came with a full year subscription to Better Homes and Gardens!!!!

That's one of my favorite magazines!

The rug had a little card on it that you added your info to, detached and sent on it's way.

Here is the link on the Walmart site...however, it may only be the in-store ones that come with the subscription...sorry, not sure about that!

Hope you enjoy your weekend!! Please see the below post to find out about a giveaway!!!

I love a giveaway!!!

Here it is!! Fun, fun, fun :o) camera is giving me a tad bit of trouble, but I wanted to go ahead and tell you about the giveaway even though I don't have an actual picture to show you.

It's "Seasons for Sharing" from Gooseberry Patch!!!

I saw this book and loved all the darling ideas in it. There are little inspirations for every season of the year.

It's a fun book for recipes, craft, and gift ideas. They even give you templates to use!!

~The Malt Chocolate Waffle Mix recipe and the fun section for Every Day Celebrations are my very favorite. It almost made me want to keep this, but I know you'll love it.~

Sooo, if you'd like a chance to win this little cutie just leave me a comment below. If you get a chance to mention this giveaway in your blog, let me know, and I'll double your name!

I'll pick a winner next Thursday night, Oct. 29 (because for some reason I just love Thursdays!).

Have a wonderful week!!

P.S. The spacing on this post is a little odd...can't quite seem to make it right...I'll have to work on that!

The good ole days!

I wanted to share an ebay store with you that inspires me with every item.

It's called Red House Vintage

Here are some of my favorite items of the moment...

I mean really, do I even have to explain why I LOVE these??

I like to imagine what may day would be like in a life where I needed to wear these :o) It's that bit of glamor and refinement that I am drawn to. The last one just looks like a summer day doesn't it?

Honestly, I am quite tempted to buy the black dress and then find somewhere great to go so I can wear's even my size....

I love little finds like this, don't you? If you have a site that just makes your day I'd love to check it out!!
