WOO HOO!!! I finally got my "new" furniture home! I am so darned excited. I bought this from Earlene (Primitive Passion Decorating blog) and I finally got it home. Like a dummy, I dropped it off at the shop, then needed help getting it home. Oh well, it's finally here! Love the mustard color and the chair is a recliner to boot. Don't you just love Johnston Benchworks?

My Rosie dog loves the couch too, I think she has slept there since I brought it home! It all matches our wall color and the size is perfect. Thank you Earlene!!!

We've had this black mini print wing chair for several years and I think I'm going to tackle a slip-cover made out of old feedsacks for it. The pillow was made for me many years ago from my friend Connie and I still just love it.

I never had a chance to show you the awesome table cover that Robin (Millstone Mercantile blog) sent me a few months ago. I brought in an old table and it works perfect on it.

The printing on the side says "primitive collector". Thanks again Robin, it is perfect!

Now don't forget about "An Evening In The Country" tomorrow night. We are going to have so much darn fun! Tomorrow morning we're going to be putting your sack lunches together to eat on the go or to set out front and relax. Wren In The Willow is ready too - hope we see you then!

By the way, this has been a busy birthday week. Happy Birthday to my friend Connie in Tennessee (I miss you) and today is friend Debbie's birthday in northern Michigan. Can't wait to be able to celebrate with each of you in person!!!

Have a wonderful evening.

Until next time...

  2. Lovely "new" furniture -- it all looks great! I think a feedsack slipcover sounds so nice!! Please be sure to post pics (listen to me -- don't mean to be bossy! I don't know how to post a pic myself!) of it when it is done. I know we'd all love to see it!

    Have a wonderful night and a great time at your "Evening in the Country" tomorrow -- you do the best things in your village.....
