Hovander Homestead Park.....









Sorry about not blogging lately. I just haven't been feeling it.

However, I did want to share the probable location of our wedding with some folks who were curious. Please keep in mind it's nasty out and the pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the place.....

New Upholstery Project.....


I picked up this chair at Value Village for $9.99.... You'll see the finished upholstery soon. I chose linen for the fabric. I still have to put the back on it.... the only part that requires sewing...grrr.





Here it is torn down. It had really great hand-tied springs in good condition. I sat on it just like this, with no upholstery and it was still comfortable. That's my test for a good design. It was stuffed with cotton and straw rather than horsehair. I think that's fairly common. I had to keep the vacuum on hand and tear off the seat on the porch because of the straw bits.
