Sweet & Cheerful!



Isn't this the sweetest little tablecloth! I couldn't pass it up when I saw it at the thriftstore (I went back to see if they still had the other two white slipcovers). Can you believe I found one...just one! Where is the other one? It could be anywhere in that store! So now I have three. Sigh....




Finding this cute homemade tablecloth eased my pain somewhat! Don't you love the sweet lace edging!




What could be more cheerful than a few sunflowers?




The two are so sweet and cheerful!





Oh, and my husband finally hung my sign that I made from a fence board!



I had a root canal yesterday so it's going to take me a while to get around to everyone that left a comment on Sunday's thriftstore post. So don't think I'm ignoring you, I'm just not up to my normal energy level yet!

That is a sweet tablecloth and I'm really hoping you'll try one more time to find that last slipcover or soemthing like the "3" you have now. A root canal? Oh! Sending you lots of "healing" vibes.
Hugs.

Sorry about the root canal. :( Been there more than once. Wished you could have found the other clip cover.Did you paint the tray? If so did you prime it first?
Hope you feel better soon.

Your tablecloth is so sweet and I also love the colors of your chairs and the tray in the center of your table. Did you paint them yourself?

Ok Ok I have the other slipcover.
No I'm kidding. LOL
But I will tell you this once my dear mother saw you got those slipcovers she went over there to look at them and she only found one she wondered where the other one was also.

I think I'm heading back to my Goodwill tomorrow to buy the two vintage pink hobnail lamps I saw today....shoulda just bought 'em!

Sometimes things like root canals force us to rest- which is a good thing.

When do you blog Manuela?

How much time do you give that each day?

Laura

Hope you feel better soon. Then, maybe you can make another run to the thrift store to see if the other slip cover shows up. Hope so. Sally

What a happy tablecloth! I'm really loving those chairs that are all different colors too. I absolutely love your decorating style. I wish you could come "fix" my house and make it look so beautiful.

Hope you feel better soon!

Love your tablecloth...I've been dreaming of making a tablecloth for my table, trying to think of something "cute" to do. You really found some cute things this week.

Root canals aren't as bad as they sound. The crown prep was worse. You will be feeling better soon enough.

I am so glad you at least found the third chaircover. Maybe next time they will have found the 4th in the wrong place and put it back and you will see it...here's hoping. We check out the junk stores but don't see much these days. :( But once in a while we go to the antique stores and I get sooo much inspiration seeing what they do with the things I already have! :) They use things in different ways or putting two things together to display them etc and I come home All inspired! We haven't bought a thing but I love seeing how they do their displays!! It is like coming to your blog and getting soooo inspired with your resorcefulness! :) :) Cept I don't even have to go out of the house to take a peek and new ideas!! :) Thanks for showing us how to love our homes and families.

Love your cheerful tablecloth...I used to have yellow gingham place mats and I put them in a g. sale! What was I thinking? Oh well, I hope the buyer is still loving them! :) I also enjoyed seeing your thrift store finds featured on your previous post and I am REALLY impressed with your grocery shopping skills! It's such a thrill to find good deals at the market!
Hope you're feeling better! Dana

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Oh no! A root canal is NOT fun! I just had my first one a month or so ago, so I know it's rough! I hope you are feeling better! On the brighter side, your tablecloth is so sweet! And your ladderback chairs are wonderful! I love the colors you painted them, and the numbers on their backs! So cute! :)

Gretchen said...

I can't believe you found at least 1 more of the chair covers. I'm so sorry the 2nd one wasn't there.

I hate that you had to have a root canal. There is nothing worse.
