Little gems....

Remember these little gems I got at my friend Sissy's tag sale? It was love at first sight....
They were actually in pretty good shape but still needed a bit of a make over to make it to my living room. 

Lucky for me I have an 11 year old that likes to paint and  is actually  good at it!  Here's a tip... Benjamin Moore makes a paint called Advance,  it goes on like an oil paint but cleans up with water. If you know anything about paint, the cleanup is the biggest pain when dealing with oil paint.  But an oil finish is always prettier and smoother and worth it when you can use oil. Thank you Ben! 
So... after  L was done off they went to be upholstered and voila....
Please excuse the photos... my phone really likes outside pics best :)....
They are done and made my living room!  They opened a can of worms and made me clean, rearrange, re hang art etc.... but they love their new home and look fab!  Are they not vintage goodness???

And speaking of vintage goodness...
Addie was in a class play and wore MY DRESS circa 1979. Thank you Mom for saving this little jewel. The appliqued deer, bonnet girl, ruffled sleeves... swoon... I mean I must have been adorable in this dress. I am sure the collar took away from my buck teeth and hopefully the dress originally came with a bonnet to hide my bowl cut. Bet I was a looker... 

Addie was pretty cute in the play and the teacher loved that she wore my dress. She announced to all the parents that Addie wore her Mom's dress from the early 70's. LATE 70's MRS. TEACHER!!!

On a less traumatizing note, I came home to find my 3rd stitch fix waiting for me!!! Yahoo!
And in it... this cool jacket I can not wait to wear! Yes... camo! 
I actually kept the entire fix this time! So... if you have not signed up and tried it yet, give it a go here. I mean who has time to shop when there are so many blogs to read! 

Let us know if you get a fix and what was in it! 
Happy Week!...-A

bye, bye birdie,
