About Me

I have always considered myself to be a creative person, and I LOVE to scavage thrift stores, junk stores and Goodwill looking to fulfill that obsession!! It really is an obsession, you know what I'am talking about!! LOL

Wow!  You Ladies really know how to hurt a gal.  I sign on, only to find another loss of a follower.  Hey, I know that Iam not the bomb or a fountain of information, never claimed to be, But it is really discouraging, especially since I only have 63 anyhow.  (oops, 62)  About 2 weeks ago, it was 64, then 63, and then 62 again.  Sorry Iam sooo boring!! 

I was going to post about my first re-upholstery job on my grandmothers antique chair, but, now I think I will just go woller in self pity..  

This is the ugly old green vinyl chair,  It had thousands of tacks and dust bunnies.  It had several layers of fabrics.  It is a product of the 50's green and yuck.  Iam not sure of the true age.  There is dark wood trim that goes around the top and sides.  The back part looks like a face.  I still have some work to do on it, but here is what she looks like now. 
I still need to sew the cover for the seat, Its just wrapped around there at the moment,  I have some nail heads to put in, and, I need to work on the wood trim a little more.  I'll get er done eventually! 

With all of the cold and freezing weather lately..yes, a broken MAIN water line..only cost a mere $1200.00 bucks....There goes my Valiversary present!
Oh well, its only money!  Here is the area right next to the chair..A cool metal desk, and some yummies.

I really do appreciate all of you ladies who have NOT deleted me from your followers list..It means A LOT to me!! 
Rhonda  (oh crap!  Guess I really am a bug!!)


  1. Don't worry, there is no way I would delete you from my list. Your blog is fun and so are you.
    I've had it happen to me and I just figure that I said or did something that upset someone. Maybe it's blogger too. One day you will have one less than the day before.

    Your chair is going to look wonderful, I love it already.


  2. Rhonda, girl the followers are just numbers..I have been blogging now for over 2 years and I will tell you I love the quality verse the quanity...Anyone can have tons of followers but most of them never take the time to even comment back to you...I'm still one of the 62 girl..
    I love your chair did you add the wood trim to the back and sides of it?? Hugs and smiles Gloria

  3. You did a great job on your chair. I am not a seamstress at all.

    As for the numbers, it happens to most of us. It happens to me. I am sorry it bothers you.

  4. Hey sweet lady! So fun to share an anniversary date with you! :) I'm more in love with my hubby today than I was on my wedding day 26 years ago!
    Your chair looks great...so much better than that old green! :)
    Now who would have the nerve to delete my buddy?! I'm not going anywhere...you'll have to kick me out..or delete me~! LOL

    Love ya!
    Ps...sorry about your water line break..that stinks! :(
