Last week I was a wishin' I could find some smallish barstools to put at my little bar.
I get smaller furniture when I can because my house is small.
A few days later I had to go into town to do some errands and I wound up in the *Goodwill Store...how did that happen????
I left there to go and visit some family...took the side streets lookin' out for garage sales, just meandering along, enjoying the day, just getting out of the house for a while.
I turned down a street I use often going downtown, that's when I saw them!
Just sittin' out there on the curb waitin' for me.
It was instant love for me.
I could'nt get them in the car fast enough...lol
I guess I was afraid someone would come out of the house...yelling!
Wait....I've changed my mind...yikes!
Well, I curbcrawl a lot, but it still makes me nervy to do it.
When I got home, I found some fabric I already had in my stash and covered the seats.
Then I felt like tying one on..
I ripped the strips for the bows to make them a lil' more shabby looking.
I needed some different valances.
The ones I had up were too dark and heavy lookin' for spring & summer.
I had this rose drapery fabric I had picked up somewhere in someones garage.
BuddyBoy watched me with a wary eye,
probably wondering what the heck is she doing now...I love that little bird, I love to hear him softly singing to himself as he admires himself in his little mirror...I call him my watchbird,
'cause he has a fit when someone or something is in the yard...
I think he's in love with one of the lady cardinals ...
He struts his stuff &
shows out when they're at the birdfeeder out there in the front yard.
I like the way the new valances turned out..
I always pick up pretty fabric, bedspreads, tablecloths & curtains at garage sales.
I'm forever piddling with something...
and sooner or later I use it.
I guess I'll go see what else I can get into today.
It's a snowy day here and I have 40's dance music playing.
Rod Stewart made a series of CD's of the old dance songs in honor of his parents.
He said they always danced and that's the music he grew up hearing.
Enjoy your day...
