I’ve been working on several projects and finally finished a few. The first is a group of lovely ladies I named “Little Women”. They were a great find. I had originally planned to replace the caning in the backs until I weighed out the cost and time versus covering them.
I can only take credit for the sweat and time, my inspiration came from Marian’s beautiful French Chair and dinning room chairs.
Definitely from the “70’s” and definetely not French but I think the new look gives them a cottage feel. I REALLY wanted to keep them but I have no place so they are off to a local shop.
A few before photos
Next is a little footstool I’ve had so long, I don’t remember where or when I acquired it. Three of the legs were barely attached; the fourth was off completely. I liked the dark finish so I just repaired and re-attached. I call him "Stan."
I used fabric I had left over from the “Little Women”. The cover is just slipped over so it can easily be removed for laundering. "Stan" is now residing in our living room.
And my latest project was for a client. Her name is Miss “M”.
She is a sturdy gal, just needed a facelift.
And afterI have another client job to complete and then I think I’d like to tackle a project in our home.

Spring has come very early this year and we are up to our eyeballs getting the yard and house ready for summer. (Summer tends to show up right behind Spring around here) Till I get some of my project photos on my computer, I just have a few minutes so I'm linking up again this week to I heart Macro over at Studio Waterstone. Please take a moment to stop by and take a look at some of the amazing talented photographers.
I call this one

Have you heard of "i heart macro"?
Lori from Studio Waterstone hosts a link party each week where you can post your macro/closeup photos.
Beautiful photos by talented folks. Not having a DSLR I normally just browse. Then in a reply to one of my posts,
Lori encouraged me to enter with whatever camera I have so here goes.
This photo is actually from last summer's Lily garden.
