White Wednesday - Chair Covers

I wanted to show you my wonderful, new chair covers. They were made by 2 special ladies at Etsy. I am so pleased with the fine workmanship, attention to detail and excellent value.
If you would like them to sew something for you their link is
They were made to fit my dining chairs - spindles and all. They have lovely deep ruffles. And they make me smile.
I wanted to paint the old dining furniture white, but DH did not like the idea. (There is more than one way to skin a cat!) I hope you all know what I mean by that :)

This is the before pic. Nasty looking, aren't they. DH seems to have the idea they are some kind of valuable antiques that should not be painted over the wood. I have heard that alot of men are the same way. **smiles**

More Little Birds

Photo credit
I have been on the lookout for a curtain rod to hang some embroidered sheers in my dining room. I found some white ones in the Fall 2010 Sears catalogue. Really darling with little white birds on them. After our yard sale this weekend I will measure up my window. I think these would look quite fun.
Happy White Wednesday, everyone.

White Wednesday - Three for Tea?

I read somewhere that anything over three items is a collection. I guess that means I have started a collection of white tea pots. This one was a great thrift store find.
A little more detail.

This one sits on the back of my stove. It is in the kitchen because I am creating a French bistro theme there.

This is my newest one. I could say that I bought it for my ladies summer tea which will have a bird theme. But really, I have had my eye on it for quite awhile.
The funny thing is, I don't drink very much tea. I am most definitely a coffee person. But tea things are so much prettier and feminine than coffee things. Don't you agree?

There is one more tea pot I would like to add to my collection. Maybe this fall I will order the Pumpkin Tea Pot from Scarlet Rose, if she still has them in stock. You can see them in an older post here.
This is the 50th White Wednesday, Thank you Kathleen for hostessing.
