Tufted Chair & Ottoman/ with Spring Pillow

It's been a long week of of dreary weather...
But I think Spring may have finally arrived! 
Sunny days and warmer temps are in the forecast for this week!
Lately I've just fallen crazy in love with tufted furniture.
So you can imagine how lucky I felt when I found this sweet chair and ottoman  recently at an estate sale.

I won't tell you how much I got it for because you'd probably never believe
So I just won't tell you ;-)
I love it's very frenchy curved lines and cream colored jacquard fabric.
But of course it just had to have little color!
So, as luck would have it again,
I found two beautiful floral napkins at my local thrift shop
and thought they were just what this chair needed.  
 One I used to drape over the back in a triangular direction to
show off the Springy looking tulips!
The other I decided would make a great pillow in a rectangular shape. 

It couldn't have been any easier!
Just folded the napkin it in half right side together and did a quick machine stitch around the edges, then left an opening to insert the batting,
then hand stitched the opening closed using a
"blind stitch". 
I gotta tell ya, that sewing term has taken on a whole new meaning for me!!

I also got this lovely silver teapot that looks oh so sweet
on my favorite silver tray I showed you recently. 

They have both found a new home here on the ottoman along with some pretty Camellias I picked from the front yard.

Here's a look at the curved back... Ooo la la!

Well friends,
I've got sooo many Spring projects I want and need to do,
I'd better get busy, busy, busy!!

Hope everyone has a great week filled with lots of sunny Spring weather!

Hugs, kisses, and sunny wishes!


I'll be linking up this week with several party's

Hi Sherri! Oh, what a beautiful chair you found and the napkins are so pretty! Love that you made the pillow - it's perfect.

What a wonderful little chair for such a bargain price! Your vignette on the tray looks so pretty and spring-like, Sherri. And you have such gorgeous flowers growing already! Lucky duck...
It is still chilly here- Ohio has finicky spring weather. LOL

Hi Sherri, you sure got a bargain on the cute little chair and you made it look adorable with the springy napkins. I envy you the flowers but especially your orange tree - I would LOVE that! No citrus trees growing in PA, that is for sure. Have a great week!

Hi Sherri, your chair is darling. What a bargain. I love the way you've dressed it up with your pillow and scarf on the back. Now the silver tea service stole my heart. Oh my gosh it is gorgeous! I would love to go thriftying with you, your eye for a bargain and details is wonderful. hugs ~lynne~

Oh Sherri,
$20! Really? What an awesome deal! Your chair is gorgeous. I would have snatched it right up too. Love the pillow you made from the pretty napkin and your tray and tea set vignette is adorable.

Hugs and Kisses,

Hi Sherri,
well I'm supposed to be in bed, but I saw that you had come by and thought...I haven't been to visit Sherri for awhile so I think I'll go say hi and saw that you had posted a couple of beautiful posts and I'm so glad I visited.
You got a wonderful chair and pretty silver pot. The chairwas such a beautiful find!!! I love tufted furniture!

And then I have to tell you I was a little jealous over your orange tree. But wow, you are so cute standing on that ladder girl!!!!!! that I couldn't stay envious for long.
sending hugs
