Once again I am calling on the Bloggers on High for advice, lest I lose my little mind!
 Another local Craigslist find.  $160!  It needes to be reupholstered, however.  That's where you come in! The photo is from Craigslist. The sofa is currently in my driveway.  I am hoping the fresh, cool air will remove the smell of Fabreeze!

 It doesn't actually need to be reupholstered.  The fabric is lovely and of high quality but I prefer something different.  I'm sure you understand! The cushions are down filled and the piece is very clean.  I would like to have it reglued just in case. Furthermore, it is actually a sofa, not a daybed...but I couldn't come up with any decent sofa puns.

The craziness began when I researched upholstery options for daybeds...
This is similar in shape to mine...too light colored for everyday use...

Too yellow...but I adore the chandelier!  The woman had one just like it for sale!

Love this color!  Mohair maybe?

I think I will paint the frame similar to this...


Same here...

Oooh!  Toile!

Maybe a nice Bosporus toile that hides stains?  With a grey-green finish on the wood?

This finish would be perfect!  I think?

This is going in Gracie's playroom, where we also keep a television set.  Here are some other items in the room to help you help me!
Not a very good photo of the handpainted woodland chest.  This is the Craigslist photo.  I just realized I don't have any photos of the playroom...probably because it is so cluttered!

Don't let the photo fool you, this armoire is gigantic!

French puppet theater...

Dollhouse...last year's present from Santa!  Craigslist find for $100!  See the details here!

There you have it! 
Can you help?

Blessings of the Season

Dearest Friends,

May the many Blessings of the Season drift down onto your shoulders, softly and gently, like freshly falling snow!
I have been blessed by each and every one of you and I look forward to following your stories, your interests, your creativity and your lives in the years to come!

From Wikipedia:

*Snowflakes are conglomerations of frozen ice crystals which fall through the Earth's atmosphere. They begin as snow crystals which develop when microscopic supercooled cloud droplets freeze. Snowflakes come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Complex shapes emerge as the flake moves through differing temperature and humidity regimes. Individual snowflakes are nearly unique in structure.

Here are a couple of photographs of actual snowflakes under a microscope! Each breathtaking and unique, just like my friends! The Good Lord knows what He's doing!

Happiest of Holidays To You!
