Living Room Reveal

I'm ready to reveal my
Living Room makeover.....

B e f o r e

A f t e r

What a difference my new slipcovers 
make in this room!

I love the way my french script pillows look on the "new" sofa

My vintage ironing board shows up so
much better against this white sofa

and my white drop leaf table looks
great with the new slipcovers

Last night I was busy making this pillow
to go on the "new" love seat
(White flour sack, burlap stripe fabric
a few buttons and one of my fabric flowers)

I also painted and recovered this little stool
for a splash of color in this room
(Red french toile)

Thank you Lisa, at Zip A Stitch
for making my new custom slipcovers

I love the look of my "new"

Every Little Birdie says
Have you ever considered slipcovers
for a "New Look

Queen of the Garden

Last year on one of my trips up to the Dallas area
I stopped in Schulenburg, Texas
at the Garden Company

While strolling around the gardens
I found a beautiful plant ......

The Queen Mum Agapanthus from the
Southern Living Plant Collection

she has become the QUEEN of my garden.....

I love watching her beautiful blooms
come to life..........

Who loves a garden still his Eden keeps
Perennial pleasures plants and wholesome harvest reaps
                                                                            Bronson Alcott

To cultivate a garden is to walk with God
                                         Christian Nestell Bovee

A garden really lives only insofar as it is an
expression of faith, the embodiment of a hope
and a song of praise.
                                                 Russell Page

Life begins the day you start a garden -
                              Chinese proverb

Isn't she royal

Queen Mum is the crowning glory of my garden

Every Little Birdie says

and the glory of the Lord will be revealed.....

Through His Creation!!
