BE STILL MY HEART...

AND THE FEED-SACK STYLE JUST KEEPS ON COMING....

This chair can be found at the uber-fab
"Paris Hotel Boutique" and if you have an extra $825.00 and about $300 for shipping, well...go for it!

Wonder what the hubs would think? Okay, no I don't. I already know... :)

Funny thing is, we have a chair that looks almost just like that (its been recovered twice by us since we got it from hubby's grandparents) and our media room adjacent to my office looks a lot like the room in the picture -- right down to the white leather couch and the cowhide rug -- so I'm thinking we just "NEED" that chair, don't we??

Not thinkin' this "logic" is going to work. And besides, I guess we do need many other things around the house than yet another chair. Another fabulous, awesome, drop-dead-gorgeous, so-chic-I-can't-even-tell-you chair...

Well, perhaps one of you out there will score this beauty in all its French beauty....

Have a great day!

Hi Ruth ~ Love the chair too…and that rug! I have a favorite chair here at home covered with red velvet that has a down cushion that was given to me by my mother ~ only because I threw a tantrum (and my body over it) when she announced she wanted to recover it with another fabric! ;-)
I was mortified! I will have to do a photo shoot of it and share with everyone. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great evening!

Very pretty! But I'm still swooning over the feed sack rug!

Hey Lisa!

Then "hold that swoon!" 'cause the rugs will be in in just a few weeks! :)

By the way, I'm dying to try the lemon cake on your blog!

Take care!

Rebecca! You bet we want to see pics of the old red chair (hey, that kinda has a "ring" to it!). :)

Funny, because
1) I don't have that money to blow on a chair....would rather spend it on veggies and flowers for the garden
2) Here I thought that burlap was OUT of style....

All I know is that I REALLY like that look, and am constantly shopping the resale shops to get a chair to recover like that!!
with a big Na-Da Farm and logo of a chicken on it.............

This is so pretty. If I had unlimited funds....sigh.

I have a serious chair thing. I can't get enough of them - and burlap? I mean, who was the genius that decided we would all love that.
It makes you want to grab a staple gun and go crazy.

Andrea said...

The chair is gorgeous...and that rug...oh yeah, that's gonna be mine!

Hi Andrea!

I adore having cowhide rugs -- I NEVER imagined I would, but they are fabulous and totally low maintenance! I have even gotten signed up to be able to sell them in the store, but I never have - yet.

Great to hear from you! :)

Ruth,
I am so glad I found you, your store and your blog. Fabulous!!! And I was going to blog on Lynn's chair today. Oh, you beat me to it! Love, love, love that chair. I too will be donating for the butterfly event in D.C. Good karma brought me to your spot. Life is good and beautiful.

I loved that chair, too! It's SO awesome! I'm thinking of recovering a similar one I have and seeing what happens.

Have a great weekend,

Hi Ruth
Well, I know I won't be purchasing the chair at that price, but I am sure there are some at a flea market close by....It is beautiful though! Lovely post.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I have camera in hand and will be snapping pics this weekend!

Have a wonderful day!
