Pink Chairs and Surprise Prezzies!

Hiya my sweet friends! I hope you're all having a lovely week so far :)
Im home today feeling a bit 'icky and blah' but thought id pop out of bed for a little while to show you some sweet eye candy!

This is a gorgeous Victorian chair that i have finally finished (you know, one of those jobs that get started and then pushed aside because a million other things have to be done before it..??).





I am sooo tickled PINK with how it has turned out.The fabric is from Urban Gardens and i ADORE IT. Ive covered a zillion things with it.
I have it listed on Ebay now (Oh much to Sams horror) with the matching footstool. Poor Sam, i had to re-assure him that i have another one that im keeping for us...what can i say, the apple doesnt fall far from the tree with my boy.

I also got busy last night making a little something for someone i think is super sweet. Its a surprise so i cant show the whole item or the name....but someone will be receiving this prezzie in the post in a few days. I love giving presents for no reason whatsoever so this was fun to make for such a sweet gal.
I hope she is surprised!


Ok im off to lay back down and pop a movie on (Fools Gold...Matthew McConoghey and Kate Hudson)...anyone seen it??? I thought a bit of 'man candy' might make me feel better..LOL.

Have great week everyone. We are off tomorrow night just for the night for Shanes work.Sam is super excited to be staying in a motel !Oh to be a kid again hey.

Love N pink kisses,
Shann

Hi Love~Bug... Sure am so sorry to learn that you're not feeling well... makes me sad. I wish I were near enough to bring you some warm chicken soup and fuss over you some. I'll be sending up prayers for a swift recovery!

You know I'm just loving the chair and foot~stool you've just finished. It is simply stunning, but anything that has had your hands upon it always ends up stunning! And I think that the surprise present you've done is way cute!! I even saw the petite lil legs of a dancer peeking out! ~swooooons~ A very lucky and blessed girlie will soon be smiling at your talents and kindness!

I hope that you, Shane, and Sam will enjoy the get~away and relax... how cute that Sam gets so excited!! Please take care of your sweet self and feel better as quickly as possible... God bless...
