~Mixing Vintage & New..Perfectly Charming~

A few days ago I shared with you some fabric I was going to use to make a rag quilt. I had decided to keep it for my living room. A few years ago I found some wonderful Scalamandre fabric online and recovered these old chairs; one is an old Morris Chair that my hubby got at an auction for 20.00(directly above); and the other one is a homemade chair that we also bought at auction for 5.00. They are tiger sawn oak and the wood is just beautiful which is what attracted us to each of them in the first place. This quilt looks fantastic with the colors of the chair fabric! So...it's ours!! The house is quite bright today as we finally have sun, so the colors on the chairs are a bit muted, but they just look wonderful together! Next...new curtains!
I also wanted to mention that I have been pouring over several series written by the author, Terri Blackstock. If you ever find any books by her...pick them up! They are fabulous. Newpointe 911 is the series I have just finished...great!
One last thing, I was looking at gardens on the Internet the other day, as I am planning to use our acreage for beauty as well as sustenance. I ran across a blog that was so beautiful I wanted to share the loveliness with you. Sweet Maria at Casa Dulce Hogar in Santiago, Chilie has the Most Romantic gardens and Gorgeous landscaping! You won't want to miss this!
Blessings Everyone!
P.S. Is this music fun or what?? It is called, "The Way, The Truth, The Life" by John W. Watilo
It makes me want to get up and DANCE! Bless you!
