LIttle Miss Muffett

Sat on her tuffet - ok I know this isn't a tuffet ( don't even know what a tuffet is - is it a little footstool?) but if she had this chair I know she would have been sitting on it instead - and children's literature would have been forever changed................

Little Miss Claire
Sat on her chair doesn't have the same ring to it does it? Ok - I'll work on that.

I was actually going to go out today and buy some Curds ( no really I was, I " get " into this, you know )
and then I could have made some POUTINE after I took the photos - and if you don't know what Poutine is please click on the link - this is an extremely popular dish here in good old Montreal - it's actually a heart attack on a plate - but you would die happy, I promise you AND you will not find this anywhere else.
Julie - try this - you'll love it, I swear!  And even if the picture of it throws you off still make it. Google the recipe.

Anyway I changed my mind because I would have had to deal with a spider towards the end and that was a little too much - even for me.

Remember this antique beauty I found?

before,after,reupholstered, painted, annie sloan chalk paint

I cannot tell you how much that fabric stunk - God it was bad - I had to hermetically seal it lol ( and the padding underneath ) but the odor lingered in my living room for awhile - I sprayed a ton of febreeze for
a couple of days.

I painted it in Paris Grey and White ( Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - waxed it - - reupholstered it including brand new odor free padding ( and added a little stencilled pattern on the seat )
And here she is now

antique, rocking chair, ascp, chalk paint

reupholstering, fabric, stencil, paint

What do you think - should I start writing kids books - or stick to furniture?
It's now sitting in a little girl's nursery - I'll leave the books to Doctor Seuss...................

Too busy to write :(

A girlfriend just pointed out that I haven't posted in 2 -
Here's my excuse

I'm trying desperately to finish this

I painted a chalkboard blotter on to the top for notes

and this to match it

I've reupholstered a chair to go with it - 

I've also painted a dresser - just a peak here because it's not ready to show

and I finished an antique children's rocking chair........................

that's my reason and I'm sticking to it!!!

Will sit later on tonight and gather my thoughts and try to come up with a somewhat decent post worthy of at least 1 person taking the time to read it - but for now I'm back to work
