Still recovering!!!!!!

From my trip!!  Boy, that was a lot of driving!!  Whew!  One thing I enjoy about driving though is that you can take as much luggage as you want and you can stop where and when you want too!!  I love that!  No matter where we stopped to eat or gas up; we met the friendliest people.  Fellow travelers and waitstaff...so wonderful!  And I already told you how great our motels stays were.  Super time!!  But still trying to get my "sea legs" back. 



Wanted to share my Easter still life with you.  I just love this bunny.  So sweet and the flowers were a gift from Dr. John.  He is so sweet!



The glass cloche and the tall glass cake stand where my great finds at Hobby Lobby.  Don't you just love them??  I have my felted desserts inside of them. 



These are two chairs (out of six) that I painted and recovered in vintage fabric.  I love how they turned out.  The vintage fabric I waterproofed so they would be durable as dining room chair covers.  The wooden chairs themselves came from a shop that imports from Mexico.  I got them for a song!!  Sanded them and painted them!  What do you think?  I love how they brighten my dining room.  And boy are they comfortable.  Here are a couple of close ups!





Hope you enjoyed my Thursday interlude.  I just needed to post some spring!!  After driving through a blizzard yesterday; I needed it bad!  Luckily, the snow didn't stick around.  But still....give me spring already!!

Have a blessed and magical day!!
Hugging you
SueAnn

I KNEW IT!!!!

As soon as I saw those chairs, I started singing La Cookaracha in my head and then you said the chairs came from a shop that imports from Mexico. Awesome. Come recover my kitchen chairs? As a reward, I'll have Juan our cabana boy serve us Margaritas out by the pool. Hey... you said you wanted to come play. Well... what are you waiting for?

I love the chairs. I used to make that drive a lot back when I was married (the first time) to a guy from there. Or rather, he would drive and I would sleep. You know I've popped in now and then but we have so much in common besides the chicago drive. 60, been married 34 years (#2), been an artist 35 years. How come I haven't followed before now? I have no excuse.

The chairs are so spiffy. I hope that is a word. Anyway, the chairs are colorful, happy, and unique.

SueAnn, I really liked your easter flower arrangements and specially your very cheerful and brightly coloured chairs. You are very talented. Bet you have a great sense of humour? - Dave
