A new pillow for the parlor...

Hello friends!
Today I am sharing a pillow
I found on Amazon.

I was a little leary at first 
because the pillow cover is
so inexpensive.

I am using it in this chair with 
a little desk.
It was a great find...

Thanks for stopping by...
Happy Wednesday!!!!

A little footstool make over...

Hello friends!
Today I am sharing a cute little
footstool make over...

It started off like this....
Cute, but I wanted something a
little different. 

First I removed the needlepoint fabric.
While the needlepoint was 
pretty the flowers were not centered.
WHen I took it off  
it fell apart....

I recovered the stool with an
Italian silk and added matching gimp
around the bottom edge.
I then added a little gold paint
to highlight the details.

Thanks for stopping by to visit....
Have a great week!

A long awaited treasure......

Hello friends!!
Today I am sharing something
I have wanted for many years.
An antique needlepoint fireplace screen..

This was not an inexpensive purchase.....
it was a splurge and a birthday
present to myself.

It has a little damage which was
the only reason I was able to afford it.

I don't mind though, 
if I was from the 17 th century 
I would have a little damage too.

Happy Wednesday!
