If you saw my last post I featured a photo from a shop in Galena of a beautifully simple pillow with a big price tag. So I made my own, for a few dollars.
|also thrifted a while back for $1.99|
So here is my feather heart, smaller but just as sweet.
With the same shabby edge as the one I saw and for about $5.00.
|Check out the fancy legs on this one!|
I think this one is perfect. Can you imagine $1.99?
Do you see where this is going? The honey pine armoire needs a little paint.
I swear it's the cooler temps we've been having...I am starting my fall nesting early!
When one thing leads to another...
I moved the two parsons chairs to the dining room with two black chairs .
Now that I am using the parsons chairs in the dining room, I needed a couple of additional chairs for company. I found two of these chairs at our parish rummage sale. I am in the process of recovering the seats and will paint and distress the wood.
We had a great weekend,
|Father and Son. They take sports seriously.|
Also on Saturday we stopped at the fancy pants mall to hear some Jazz. A local personality Wayne Messmer sang with the band. The music was good, and as you can see, the place was packed.
On Sunday in Long Grove, a neighboring community, has a afternoon concert series. A good bluegrass band from California played. The weather looked threatening, but it turned out to be a lovely afternoon.
Another beautiful summer week.
We have packed every fun thing we can into this summer
and we still have several weeks to go. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.
