A little fluffing done here and there about the house,
that’s about all I can do these days, trying to recuperate from “The Shingles”.
There should be a horror film, titled, “The Shingles” as it is truly “horror-a-ble”.
I am not one to sit . . . I get fidgety.
I was sitting on the sofa, looking around to see what I could do
that would not take much energy or movement . . . the key word being movement
and not get the attention of the resident Hall Monitor.
Ah ha! The light bulb moment.
On the vintage settee is a grain sack pillow that
used to belong to my friend Martha, my friend that moved away to the Lone Star State.
Oh yes, I bought the quilt on the back of the settee from Martha too.
As you can see, I used the grain sack pillow as a pillow. 🙂
Previously, I was contemplating having my friend Linda make me a cushion for the settee.
But the light bulb moment negated that idea.
Hello!….there was the cushion staring me right in the face.
The face, one of the parts of my body that does not hurt . . . good thing,
not being able to talk would not be so wonderful. 🙂
The vintage grain sack pillow really fit perfectly on the seat of the settee
as if it were made for it. Martha, don’t you just love it!
The vintage French Wine/Picnic basket that I purchased in France sits beside the vintage settee
that I purchased at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta a few years ago.
I am so happy that I had that “light bulb moment” and was able to make this settee
look even better with that grain sack pillow as a seat cushion.
Did you see the post-it that says, “do not sit on me” 🙂
It was so great to create something wonderful with very little effort,
because I have a resident Hall Monitor and if he catches me doing too much and not resting,
I just may get a detention! But I have a note from the doctor!
Have a beautiful day!
