Spring Decorating Around My Home

Greetings everyone....I hope that you are having a great week so far.


It's a bit unusual for me to post on a Tuesday, in fact it's a bit unusual for me to have any free time to do some of the things that I  enjoy besides my busy website! I've decided to lighten up a bit over the last few days as I was really feeling some Shabbyfufu burnout....so I've postponed working to play!


I've been doing some sewing for my own home for a change and just finished some very simple slips and pillows for the dining room. As a collector of vintage linens for decades I have tons....I mean, literally closets and bins full of old tablecloths, fabrics, and trims. These chair slips were made from vintage Irish linen tablecloths....the pillows too. Very simple, plain white with ruffles. There's nothing like working with linen, especially the old stuff....lots of it...



I have also been playing around in Photoshop and although I'm normally not big in the joining dept, decided to link up with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday today and use one of her awesome textures on these photos called Silence (which as you know is golden, so I'll be quiet now). I hope that you enjoy these photos....it's looking really Springy around my home!

So pretty, Janet,
The slip covered chairs are beautiful, as is everything else you've shown us here today. I'm happy to hear you're playing and getting to enjoy a little decorating time. Nothing like doing something you love to recharge your batteries, right?
