There it is, the finished chair! I really loved the fabric that Kristy picked out it was soooo soft and comfortable and the color was the perfect neutral that would work in just about any room. I was so happy to give this chair a little makeover as it was one of those supper comfy pieces. Kristy said she's even fallen asleep in it. Well...If you can fall asleep in a chair then you know its a good one !!

Getting some things done in the shop. Both for me and my clients. I am still looking for a desk but until I find one I'm using the table from the porch (which is closed for the winter) Along with a white linen slip covered chair that is way too short for the table but it looks cute right?
Some of my favorite pinks on my shelf that I got from The Hog Shed along with another not so cute shelf that I got from the garage but I did put it to work in the shop this is the before
and this is the after as I painted it white and covered the shelves with wallpaper and had hubby build some wracks for pipping and zippers on the spool
and then I made a pocketed canvas holder for scissors zipper pulls and tape. This all sits right next to my sewing machine so that I can sew the piping right off the roll. Its been working really well and it looks so much nicer then the dirty ol gray shelf.

As I was looking for a couple of Christmas gifts on Etsy the other day I ran across this seller. She makes the cutest recipe boxes( Gifts) and address files, the something for me part of this post. I convo-ed her and asked if in addition to the lettered tabs would she make the months of the year tabs also. Now I have address and birthdays all in one place. The cutest file ever! I love having a card for each Birthday. I can put all kinds of info on the card, sizes, favorite color what I gave, ect... Speaking of Birthdays, a gift for a nephew who's favorite color is .... yup, blue!

Working on some things around the house. I have my fall decorations out and even did a little painting Well actually my mom did the painting while she was here. We decided that my entry/accent wall needed to be orange for fall this year. I've wanted to do this for a couple of years now but have not because I know that I won't keep it this color for long but I love the way that it looks for fall ( yes I already know what color it will be for Christmas! )
Oh and one of my favorite Garage sale finds this summer is this basket that I picked up for .50 cents. It works perfectly on my table love it cause its low and I don't have to move it off when we are visiting or eating.

Yes Progress has been made I finished up the Duvet cover . and am happy with the results and I did get some things made up for The Hog Shed and I really had fun with it. I do love the changing of seasons. I get so excited when I get to work with a new color pallet and am having fun with the deep earthy colors of fall..
I put together a fun over sized footstool along with some matching (Huge ) floor pillows with handles.... that I love!! I also made a warm winter throw and some reversible table runners.
but I must say that I had the most fun with these fun fall totes with matching zippered makeup bags.
Hope you get a chance to visit us at The Hog Shed
