OMG! My New Sofa Creation Slipcovered in Vintage Chenille Roses Bedspreads

WOW!!! This one is my best yet!! I love creating these slipcovered pieces. I use chenille bedspreads mixed with lovely roses fabrics in shades of white, pinks and aquas. I love brush fringe and have just scored 7 rolls of thick white fringe on ebay. I bought all they had, found in some warehouse- new old stock. awesome. i am already on my second roll (at 72 yards each, lol!!)
The fabrics are just yummy with beautiful roses and scrolls. there are 3 pillows included with luxurious down inserts, the center pillow is an awesome and rare needletuft chenille with a pretty flower design.
I was lucky enough to collect two beautiful white vintage chenille bedspreads with an all over rose pattern. They are some of my favorites to work with. They are so thick and durable. The ruffle trim is 600 linear feet long and took one entire bedspread. You can find this at my etsy store along with many more lovely things to beautify your home. Big hugs, donna :-)

King Jeffrey

Hmmm hade trouble uploading pics...retrying..

Jeffey The Store Kitty King of Vintage Chic Furniture

OMG!! This is the GREATEST cat ever !!! He actually let us put a crown on his head while he posed for us. He is the best and coolest cat I've ever had!! My friend Thea Couglin fabulous baby photographer , does some wonderful newborn photos. She has used many of my furniture pieces for her shoots. After the last newborn shoot at my store, we placed Jeffrey on the set , put a crown on his head, and he happily posed for us. Can you believe a CAT ??sat there and posed??? AND let us put a crown on his head ??? while he sat there ??? As far as cats go, that's almost unheard of !!! He is just the most awesome kitty EVER!! Also, in my older posts, you will see that he was on the front cover of April 2010 Life At Home Magazine. He is a local celebrity. He could be a professional Kitty Model :-)
