A Little Somethin, Somethin...

Hi Bloggerettes!

Staying on the "Frenchy" theme y'all!  I found four perfectly white placemats at the thrift and decided they needed a little somethin,, french images from Graphics Fairy to the rescue...

There in my booth ready to go....
Sweet embroidered beach chair pillow....

These salt and pepper shakers are vintage reproductions.
I just love the look.

My kitchen is very happy since I added them to the tray.

Here on the coast we are all waiting to see what happens with Hurricane Irene and hoping she blows out to sea.

Everyone stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Sissy, I love the placemats, as far as I'm concerned you can stay on the French theme forever, I can't get enough. I forgot where you live....Somewhere on the East coast, stay safe!

Wishing you the best with Irene, keeping track over here.

Are you guys ready for Irene, Sissie? I always think of all my Carolina friends this time of year. Yes, we're all going to see a something on the east coast, but the Carolinas stick out there in nerve-wracking fashion.

Why don't you do a post on transferring graphics for dummies like me and, well, maybe some of your other readers...but at least me. :)

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Cute placemats Sissie! Yes, I hope Irene takes a sharp right. At this point it sounds like Sunday and Monday will be sloppy here. Stay safe:@)

Denise said...

Hi Sissie! Just trying to catch up on some long past due visiting. Looks like you've been busy creating beautiful things. Love those placemats and the pillows in your previous post. Keep those kitties safe during the storm!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Beautifully transformed placemats! I am loving that white pillow with the yellow beachchair! I have been thinking about you and hope you will be out of harms way...stay safe! ~Hugs, Patti

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Those placemats are awesome Sissie! love the little green shakers too, always something happening over here!

Suzann said...

I love those placemats!!! They look great and original, you have been busy with all your creations!!!
Enjoy your day and I am watching the news and pray that Irene fizzles out. Living in Orlando and had "Charlie" visit was very scary for us.
Suzann ~xoxo~

Kim said...

Another great idea I never woulda thought of - I missed out on the creative gene in my family. Love it Sissie!

Paula ~ castleandcottagesigns said...

Donna said...

Oooh, la, la, Sissie! I love all things French (of course!) and your placemats are perfection! Maybe sometime you can divulge your secret to making them? Iron on transfer, maybe? I've not yet been brave enough to try it. Anyway, they won't last long in your booth:)

Thinking about you with Irene coming...hoping that you have all your windows covered and have a safe place to stay inland during the storm. Coming from a gal that has gone thru a ton of don't want to mess with these storms...get lots of supplies and stay safe.
