Hi Vickie, I just love your blog and the pretty pics of your house! Its so inspiring especially on days when I don't feel like sewing much! I had to smile about your lounge dilema. I was in a position where I could either buy a new lounge or take my mother in law's old one, which was that country blue/cream stripe looking kind, which meant in the first option the kids(3) couldn't do what they wanted on the lounge and I would be forever telling them to get their feet off and sit properly or take my mum inlaws one, make a slipcover for it in the fabric of my choice and not have to worry about it! Ofcourse I went for the second option, which was a real bargain as it was free, only cost me $150 for the fabric and I love it! Both the lounges in your pics are nice, I like your taste. Its exactly like you said, if you buy secondhand and get tired of it you don't lose a fortune to change it and thats what I really love about shabby chic. Look forward to reading more of your blog,,, take care, Maryann


Hi Vickie,
Thank You for putting together an amazing blog post, I have enjoyed looking at all of your pretties that you have purchased to bargain prices. I love how honest you were about prices & I too am an ebay-a-holic!
I look forward to seeing what you find next...

Hi Vickie you have some lovely pieces of furniture. The tables look great and that mirror is so lovely.
Good Luck with finding the right lounge suite.

Hi Vickie,

My goodness, your home and your furniture are just gorgeous. But that MIRROR, that is one of the most beautiful mirrors I have ever seen. Really! No wonder it's one of your favorites!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Gorgeous finds Vickie and I love how you were able to transform them and have the vision to see the beauty in them!!! GREAT bargains!!! And your home looks amazing, it doesn't at all look mish-mash or like it has been put together from odds and ends, you have made it all tie in perfectly! I adore your two tables. they are perfection! xo
