A while back I blogged about some chairs I stumbled upon at Brimfield almost a couple of years ago. They were exactly what I had been looking for ....and for a mere fraction of the cost...These are over 100 years old. The wood is oak and very heavy as typical of old growth wood. The seller told me they were sitting in a barn in Rochester, NY - no wonder the needlepoit was all destroyed!
It took me a long time to select the fabric and then to have them reupholstered. But alas they are done and gorgeous. Total cost is 1/5 of buying them new. Feeling pretty good about my score!!
This is what I love doing!! It feels so gratifying.

One way to do it is with daffodils or tulips, available at your local grocery store. I am not trying to rush spring or move beyond the holidays. I just want happy!

In the spirit of thanks, and, in particular, thanking my sponsors, this week's post is dedicated to Hearst and Sears/K-Mart. They go hand in had because Sears and K-Mart are the exclusive retailers of the Country Living Magazine branded product. And, as you may figure - Country Living is one of the Hearst Magazine titles! Country Living is one of my favorite magazines because it provides great inspiration and tips for creating an inspirational country and heirloom look. In fact, the tabletop that is shown in the special has many of the Country Living products - the table cloth, plates, napkins and many of the serving pieces including the chicken butter dish, and gravy boat.
Thank you for your lovely magazine and for creating and selling affordable products to create an heirloom tabletop look!

I picked up these beautiful flowers from Indian Line Farm and arranged them in a large teapot. These summer colors are perfect in any bouquet--a cominbation of pinks, reds, purples, and yellows.
