My heart skipped a beat when I came across this fabulous chair. I had my husband sit on it while I rushed to the counter to buy it. When op shopping, it is the quick and the dead!!
This is a close up of the fabric.... don't you just love it? I am still at a loss as to why anyone wouldn't want this beautiful chair but it has found a loving home with me and is certainly cherished. I have it in our bedroom, away from messy teenagers, and is just perfect for quiet reading or just thinking.....

I bought a heap of quilting squares at a garage sale recently.... not for quilting, but for my cards. I often put fabric on my cards and they seemed just perfect for what I had in mind.
Yes, I know this one is crooked...I was trying for a slight angle but it didn't quite work out the way I wanted. My daughter has her birthday in a few days and I know she will love this card.

They had made themselves at home in my dollhouse! They were in the loungeroom....
And in the bathroom, I hope they didn't overflow the bath.
They were in the bedroom... oh, that could have been awkward for me.....
In the kitchen, but who is supervising the toddler in the highchair??

Sunday lunch is always a civilised affair.... and being serenaded on the piano was such a treat...
