Sexy and Sassy

Her Sexy Curvaceous Legs and French Sensibilities


Her Sassy Style & Whimsical Nature


Her Elegant Vanilla and Rustic Burlap


Her Vintage Appeal & Smashing Color


All Combine for a Bench that is as Individual and Precious as You Are.  A Piece that when put in your Home says "You"


 Destined for my booth soon, this is a piece that I found last week.  Stored in a barn for years and years, a woodchuck had taken a liking to it.  :)  While keeping the original gorgeous old 'gatored teal paint, I sanded and smoothed and sanded some more.  I stained and waxed and polished and conditioned.  I gave it a slight white wash and sanded some more.  This old bench was very Frenchy in style and had a caned insert.  There was only remnants of it left and I decided to re-invent.   Utilizing a creamy burlap, raggy muslin ruffles and lots of cushy batting,  a new insert was born. *** I was thrilled with the results. ***


I would love to join these parties this week and hope you will too.  Click the links for some amazing inspiration.  xoxo Until next time......
