Ingredients For Library Pilows!

I ordered the Napoleon prints on cotton napkins from Zazzle. Once they arrive, I will embellish the Campage toile pillows with red velvet and gold embroidered honey bees!

Now, I just have to patiently wait...which is not my strong suit...I guess you could say it is my Waterloo!

Happy Easter!

I hope this find you in good spirits and good health.  

We are cooking Easter dinner as I write this.  The photos are from last Easter.  I hope you enjoy them!

I found the Royal Staffordshire Clarice Cliff plum transferware on Facebook Marketplace.  The tablecloth is vintage Martha Stewart from ebay.  Everything else is from Craigslist.   

We cannot do flowers this year because our cat, Delores, likes to drink the water and she always wins the battle.  lol  

I am trying to get back into blogging but life has a funny way of getting in the way.  

I have missed you guys!

To the Dogs!

Hi friends!  I have been adding color to the house as fast as I can.  Though I love a monochromatic scheme, I don't live in in a Belgian castle.  Our home is more suited to English style...and that means color! 

We have finally saved enough to have all the upholstered treasures reupholstered.  
It has made a world of difference!

Today, I want to share the dog room.  It was formerly the music room, but the new piano was too big and we had to put it in the family room.  This is also the game room and the cat's favorite room, oddly.  lol  

 I had the starburst upholstery for years.  I found it on Craigslist.  It is perfect for the game table chairs.  There is still a LOT left over.  I am trying to decide where to use it?  I think it would be perfect on the Louis XV sofa that is still in the garage!  

The chair to the left of the painted secretary is upholstered in Schumacher Sherbrooke toile.  I just love it!  

In retrospect, covering a settee in velvet with so many pets, was not one of my most brilliant ideas.  There is a reason lint brushes are made of velvet!  

One of each, please!  

The stool is covered in Scalamandre toile.  It was a sample.  Just enough for one small seat!  

The green toile on the chairs was found on ebay.  $50 for 7 yards.  Just enough to cover two chairs and an ottoman!  

At Christmas!  

Clarence is our official chair inspector!  He has to sit on every piece that comes into the house, to make sure it is comfortable enough!  

The startburst fabric again.  I could do an entire room in this fabric!  

Every item you see, except for Clarence, was found on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, Bookoo and OfferUp.  Even with upholstery, we paid far less than what an Ikea room would cost.  It will last far longer, as well!  

Next time, I will share the library!

Hoping you are well!
