Auction find redos and my pillow!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Would you like to see some more of my finds and redos?  I thought so.  This little vanity bench is from the auction.  It was a dark ugly brown color with a worn out needlepoint cover.  Now, it looks like this.....

Another auction find is this little french side chair.  I just love the back.  It was very dirty and had blue fabric on the seat with grease stains...ick!  It immediately got sissiefied!

I also want to show off my canvas pillow from Restoration Hardware, France 7 Postes.  I think I'll order another one.
They are on sale!!

The weekend is here so get out and find, create, write, cook, sew or restore something beautiful.


I want some of these!!!

I'm linking to Pink Saturday.  Be sure and stop by and check out all the pink pretties.

Love your pillows, Sissy you always do such a nice job on your pieces. I need you input on my post today. You are one of the bloggers I am referring too that always seem to get so much done. When you have a chance could you give me your opinion on the question I asked, thank you, Kathysue

Shelia said...

HI Sissieness! Oh, you did Sissiefy those pieces. Everyone is gorgeous! Now, those are my favorite cookies from the grocery store. I buy a box and then hide them in a drawer so my hubby doesn't eat them - they're just for me! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Can't decide which I love best...the little bench or the beautiful chair. So I'll just take one of each. I had a similar cookie today! Bought it for grandson but he shared with me.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

I have been going back and forth about buying that Restoration Hardware pillow over and over again. Seeing how great it looks on your couch is definatly pushing me toward buying it!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Happy Pink Saturday Sissie Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share today. I love the bench, and the fabric you chose to cover it in, gorgeous. That little chair with the new toile cover, well be still my little heart. It is SO beautiful. Isn't it amazing what a little coat of cream with a new cover can do for an old piece? I love it.

Your pillow is delightful and I can see why you have decided to order another one? Looks so pretty on your sofas. Love it.

As always, the best for last. Oh do those doughnuts ever look delightful? I hope you ate one for me as well.

Many hugs my sweet friend and SO much love, Sherry

A Cottage Muse said...

Those donuts looks delish! I'm off to Restoration Hardware now!

Diann said...

Hi Sissie!
Oh, I love your redo chairs! So pretty. And I like your term "sissiefied"!

Brenda Kula said...

Can't go wrong with toile. Those donuts sure look good. I've been good and haven't had one in months. But boy, those sure make me think twice!

Char said...

Sissie, I am so sorry to say that I didn't know you were a member of Pink Saturday. I am very happy to see you here, it gives me another reason to visit your lovely blog. I have to tell you I am in love with the white and green toile fabric. That is just so pretty and fresh. You can never go wrong with the color green, can you?
Happy Pink Saturday to you Sissie and please forgive my tardiness. I started at the top of the list and didn't want to miss you, Char
