 WOW it's March. 
It has been cold here in Florida and no one from up north wants to hear my complaining. 
But I didn't move far away from those I love to have cold weather here in sunny Florida.
I have been busy entering information into Artgirlz books to be able to close them soon. 
It is still a bit sad except the extra time I have to do creative stuff. 
Imagine that. 


Midge and I loved going to estate sales when we first moved here.
Bargains usually abound because the kids want to sell all their parents junk and get back home. 
One of our first finds was this mid century chair we purchased for a $1. 
We refer to it as our dollar chair.

Well, in perfect Artgirl style, not knowing what I was doing, 
I reupholstered the dollar chair.
I painted the legs and arms black.
I covered the icky old chair with polyfil and then covered that with muslin. 
That allowed me to work out some of the problems. 


Not being patient was one of the them. 
Not having enough fabric was another. 
Tracy and I rarely buy more than a half yard. 
But with the help of Google I found more fabric at  Cia's Palette.
She even had the heavier weight I was looking for. 


The red cotton ball fringe was the perfect kitschy topping. 

I also wanted to add some of the color from chair to the rest of the living room 
so I worked up this big pillow with a giant flower.
It still needs some finishing touches like filling 
and definitely some red ball fringe.

Oh my gosh!! I have that same fabric! I loved it so much I bought two yards of it which is really unusual for me. I just cut into it this week after having it for like two years! I'm using it in a quilt with paintstix and batiks. Love the chair and pillow!

Oh my, my, my!! I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this chair! I have a chair sitting in my garage that I have been meaning to reupholster -FOREVER....but never seem to get around it to it. You just inspired me to rethink this "chair thing." I do have to agree - the ball fringe is the icing on the cake with this funky chair!

I love what you are doing here, and definitely think the painting and collage work you have been doing recently have primed the pump and given you a fresh new perspective!
