This week I found some lovely floral sheeting-2 x double sheets and a pillowcase in beautiful condition. I think a Spring skirt of sorts is in order.

I also picked up a couple of pretty aprons-just 50c each. Love the fabrics.
This one was poorly made and a bit tired so I've already snipped into it and made some covered buttons.
This one is a bit cute so I'll be wearing it for a while.

Not an op shopped find but an old chair I retrieved from the shed at my in-laws place.

It belonged to Pop and it will be the perfect chair for O's desk. Funny though, when I went outside around 5pm to snap a picture of the chair, I decided to pull out the sander and see what was underneath that red laquer. I'm not sure the Mr found it funny. Dinner time on a Sunday night might not have been the best time to start sanding back an old chair but sometimes when inspiration hits...well you just have to run with it, I think;)

Just like Martha said...

More fab finds Lea, can't wait to see how the chair turns out...don't you just love wondering who the previous owner was, what they did, perhaps a famous novel or amazing love letter was written by the owner when they sat at their desk...ahhh love breathing new life in history!
