Chairs, Chairs and More Chairs

Last week while working at Queen City Marketplace, I saw this beautiful
corner chair and bought it and brought it home.
I am a sucker for a corner chair, this one has been painted and has nice fabric
on the seat, but not in my colors. So I have picked some fabrics to try on the seat
and will reupholster it.
I moved the slipper chair in the guest room to my dressing room, i sold my pretty
Schumacher slipper chair that was in there on Ebay by accident, forgot it was still listed.
I also had a hefty  price on it and had it on there like for ever. I brought one home from
my space, see previous post, but it is too wobbly and needs some work.
Good fit!
I found a beautiful little chair out at The Factory a couple of weeks ago and had Laurie and
Andrew reupholster it in a fabric sample of a line I no longer carry. I found the trim at Robert
Allen's outlet. I love how it turned out.

This is a beautiful Federal Style chair with brass details, it fills a space in my
dining room where I had a Victorian bamboo chair I had in my kitchen that I also
sold on Ebay. Is there a lesson to learn here?

I also found this cute purse at TJ MAXX by Nenette Lepore for my August purse of
the month.

My Farmhouse Porch and Garden Beds

Here is a sneak at my farmhouse front porch, this house is in the city,
I pretend that it is on a farm because it has a big yard with a garden shed
and a huge garage. Here is my heavy, large urn filed with what I bought for
my self for Mother's Day.

 Mint, Rosemary, Dusty Miller, Impatient and Delphinium. My small urns on pedestals
by the front door with a sun hardy impatient.


My hanging baskets from Martens with fragrant Petunias and Verbena.
Flowers and foliage that I brought my last house that have come back this Spring.

Hydrangea and Snapdragons replanted.

I had two Dianthus plants, only one made it.
A Pincushion I planted in the ground this spring. And things I planted from seed from
the Wild Flower Seed Company.


Cosmos and baby Snapdragons
More pictures as things develop.

Floor Move at Queen City Marketplace

Last Thursday I gave my spaces at Queen City Marketplace a big
rearranging. I sold a sofa, which opened up the floor a little bit. It
was time to freshen things up. It always helps my sales to move things
around, people see things in a new light. Here is a few shots of the space.




I still need to paint the turquoise walls, not my color at all.






All the items you see can be purchased at Queen City Marketplace or a few are listed
on my Ebay and Etsy Shops.
