New Look ....

I am so excited to share our new chairs!
Dean and I have a special spot where we sit in the morning and have coffee. 
Finally after all these years we got the chairs and slipcovers that we wanted...or I should say that I wanted.
Dean found the chairs at the thrift store for $50.00 each. 
I wanted to use Nonno's flour sack print and other vintage fabrics....and Voila'
My friend Elizabeth made the slipcovers for me
she is amazing! 




I miss spring! These are the last flowers from the yard.....




I received a huge box during Christmas....it was filled with gifts from my sweet friend Cindy. These cute cups and plates were part of her gift. She knows me really well,
and the sign below too
Keep Calm and Carry On

Thank you Cindy!


So...let's keep calm and carry on. It seems January is one of those months trying to clean, organize, plan the year......

Wishing you a wonderful weekend

Ciao for now
Rita

    Mi piacciono da matti quei tessuti grezzi a righe rosse! Io ne vorrei fare un paio di sdraio questa primavera.
