A cute stool redo and some rag garland...

Found this cute little stool that needed some redoing.  I really wish that I had taken a before picture.  It was a dark, dark wood with a suede top...ugly!  The seat looks like a heart....cute!

A little chalk paint, drop cloth and a French image.....

Now what is a girl to do with some left over drop cloth fabric.....
why make a rag garland of course...
and add some sea shells...
They are off to my booth!

Love the stool, Sissie! I found a vanity stool recently at a garage sale that I am in the middle of making over. I'm thinking I may keep it. : ) Love the garland. Such a great idea to use left over drop cloth. I want to make a rag wreath and I have some drop cloth here that may work.

Dearest Sissie~

I have missed visiting with you!

After two big surgeries and now we are getting ready to move to SC, I just have not had the time to visit my favorite Blogs! I am hoping after we move and get settled to start a new Blog and visiting my faves more!

I think of you often my dear!

Lots of Love,
