A Little Sewing A Little Treasure Hunting - Overall A Good Week!

Ok, so since my buddy Sue wasn't knocking down my door to slipcover my stool. I had to do this one on my own! (If you haven't seen her stool be sure to check it out, it's pretty wonderful!)I love ruffles but they are not my favorite thing to make. And I even have a ruffler, what's with that!
Since I had some time off I decided to tackle my stool. I do need to hem it up a bit as it is a bit long, but I do love the look. The cats think it's their own personal playhouse as it's perfect to hide under.

This week-end I was able to do a little estate shopping. Here are a few things I picked up.

This wonderful old Lux clock was at my first stop. It is so sweet and tiny and somehow it made it to my wall. I just need to find a key for it as it did not come with one.

On my last stop Saturday I found this wonderful corner cabinet for $25.00, it was a must have with all the thick creamy chippy paint. I already had a corner cabinet in my kitchen but I liked this one much better. So I unloaded mine, took it to Monticello and put this one in it's place.

I've been thinking and thinking as to what to giveaway for my 100th post. There have been so many great giveaways lately it's a little intimidating. So stay tuned!

I love the foot stool. I also have one in the garage that needs a sewing makeover. I know how to sew, but...
Do you have any shows coming up?
Have a good day

Your foot stool is adorable. I love the little ruffles. I love Monticello..I've only been there once when I visited my friend in Stevenson, WA but it was one of the best shops I've been in.
