Is there such a word as cottagey?  Well, I guess there is now!  Happy Day all!  Sorry I have been MIA from this blog for a bit but I have been giving my sofa the "slip".

Now back to the "cottagey chair" which I think turned out so very well.  It sat all winter in the dark recesses of the garage and when I moved my bedroom chair out to the porch, I found this little chair would be a perfect replacement.  That is, with a bit of sanding, cleaning, paint and fabric for the seat.

The fabric on the seat is Liz Claiborne's beautiful linen.  I LOVE this fabric and you will see how much once I have finished the slipcover in my livingroom!  It washes well and even though some thread escapes the little circles which are embroidered on, I can live with that.  The color of it reminds me of beach sand.  Sigh.  Guess I won't be seeing much of that for a while since we got a huge amount of SNOW the other day.  Ugh. 

Well, back to the slipcover....
