Stop. Breathe. Catch your breath. I am going at a crazy pace lately and trying to get it all done. And wanting to get ready for the Fourth of July in addition to several fantastic events. Yesterday I went to an event for EcoLife Foundation, for which I was to style the two buffet tables. It took me three HOURS to get there, and when I arrived the event was starting. Gulp. But I have to say, Bill Toone is amazing and I sure hope to help the Foundation out in the future. Despite the traffic and stress, I tried to keep a smiling face. The hostess was ill and did not attend, and her dear husband did the two tables not knowing I was coming to style them; it all worked out fine. Our hostess is also growing fantastic sunflowers; this alone would make you smile after three hours sitting in traffic~
Arriving home last evening I made a late dinner for my parents and got ready for today; time to trot out the red white & blue~
My booth today~
The front table is draped in a newer bunting. Looking at it here gave me a great idea….hmmm…..
After helping my former partner with her storage unit and making a crapload of sample food for my sis for her event next weekend (she loved it; I’m on), I got home at 7pm to get to a little work….my little mossy chair which was formerly the Romantic Homes burlap slipcover chair in the Give Freely shoot was ready for another makeover. I have had lots of inquiries about mossy pieces, but this was really just for Earth Day. And after three events, it was looking pretty shabby, so I started to deconstruct it.
First the top part~
then the horsehair seat; after several photo shoots it was time to remove the muslin, the moss & glue was a MESS!!~
Here she plain & simple~
BUT lucky chair, this week she gets a patriotic dress, of some sort….~
Get out the measure~
Hop to my trusty sewing machine (Mom’s)~
Get a little moral support from the Limoges Leopard, long one of my favorites~
and with a little pinning and sewing….
and then glueing~
…she starts to take shape, my pretty new Patriotic Chair!
She’s dressed up and ready to go to Market tomorrow morning. Another post to follow tomorrow~
