Counting My Blessings

First I want to say that I have the pleasure of creating beautiful things every day. I am surrounded by beauty. For that I am truly blessed. My friends and customers remind me of this often. Their comments of my shop and creations are heart warming. I am so humble in my success and I guess I don't realize Just how fabulous I am ( they keep telling me so) These things I make are for others to enjoy and surround themselves with beautiful things that warm THEIR heart. It is a way of giving back, making people happy, people I don't even know. I recycle and help the planet. Just a by product of what I do. I am truly blessed and feel grateful every day for where I am and what do. Thanks to all :-)
here are a few of my latest creations.

Chenille bedspread slipcovered sofa in my customers home

How wonderful it is for me to see my fabulous creations in their new homes. This is my second ruffle slipcovered sofa made with vintage chenille bedspreads in white with an all over rose pattern. the ruffle takes one whole bedspread. I calculated aprox 600 linear feet of ruffle. Then i have covered the cushions and back pillows with the most yummiest shabby chic fabrics in shades of white, pink and blue. I have them shipped from half way around the world, coming all the way from Asia. My customer was a dream to work with and I was able to get it shipped to her in time for her big party, where she was so proud to show it off to all her friends and family. She was proud, I was prouder. I wish I could have been there to hear all the oohs and aaahs and comments on the beautiful new addition to her livingroom. I shipped it across the country to her residence in California.
I know when I had it in my shop, I heard many gasps and sighs, as well as my own. Every time I walked by it I was so amazed at what I made. It was just sooooo pretty. Then I sat in it.....ahhhhhh, it was so cozy.... Was it cozy because it was a really comfortable piece of furniture?....or was it extra cozy because it was so beautiful??? I have to say, I remembered having it in my shop after purchasing it and sitting in it with its original tan muslin upholstered cover and not really thinking much of its coziness. Once i finished the covers, I sank into it and it felt so dreamy, like one of the most comfortable things I've ever sat in before. I think it was more cozy now that it is beautiful :-)
I look forward to the next pieces I create and I am as excited as my followers to see what I make next. Each piece gets better and better. I look forward to making more wonderful slipcovered pieces using cozy and heartwarming vintage chenille bedspreads. Find more of my pieces at and contact me if you would like me to make a special creation just for you. big hugs, donna :-)
