Well hello my friends. I've had a longer than normal absence from my blog. I haven't been feeling the greatest and so my productivity level is in the toilet. I have an autoimmune disease that causes fatigue. It can be very debilitating and frustrating. I'm feeling better, well enough to do a little online shopping anyway lol. I've been searching the thrift stores and Craigslist for over a year for a chair, haven't been able to find just what I'm looking for. Lo and behold Restoration Hardware had a sale on exactly the style that I wanted. YIPPEE!!! Since I had a little Christmas money and I haven't bought furniture brand new from the store in 15 years I treated myself to this lovely chair. I ordered it in white linen with a burlap back and sides.

 I was going to recover my current living room chair, but I've grown to dislike it intensely. The more I looked at it the more I hated it. Does that ever happen to you? I've also bought new pillow covers and linen to make slipcovers for my sofa and dining room chairs. I've realized that I have to buy some things and make a lot less than I would like too because of my health. In short I just need to rely on more help from the stores, it's a bummer when you enjoy creating your own stuff. I also bought new drapes from Ikea and I have a plan to redo my balloon shades.I'm giving them a whole new look. I'll have that project up soon. I'm halfway done with one of them and I cant wait to show you guys. In other news after many years of frustration about getting my bathroom done I've decided to get some estimates from the pros on getting some of the major work done. I hope before the year is out I'll have a reveal on my long awaited bathroom. Wish me luck it's been a long time coming.  Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back soon.
