Have I got you scratching your head with my post title? LOL...here's the deal, there are three amazing challenges out there that I am DETERMINED to participate in this week and two of them are set to close tomorrow. The third I have a lofty goal to make more than one project for and, like so many of you out there reading this, I am short on creative time lately. Thus, I present you with my three-fer for the Color Throwdown Challenge #90, the Shabby Tea Room "comforts of home challenge", and the Three Cheers for Chairs Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Whew!
*sigh* oh do I love a cushy chair with pretty surroundings plus a good book. This is one way I refresh and take little me moments whenever I can. I would love a hideaway as gloriously girlie as the one above. So far I haven't scored a vintage chair as pretty as the one above from the Graphics Fairy blog but I do have a color palette in my house that is very similiar to the throwdown colors this week.....especially in the celery color department.
I still love this set from Stampin Up called Handbill Headlines...hmmm, based on the last couple of posts, I must be having another honeymoon with some of my faves from SU! despite their earlier retirement. I paired this juicy Refresh stamp with the sleek swirls from Papertrey Ink's Fancy Flourishes and a chandy stamp from Studio G that has been patiently waiting it's turn to be stamped. Tiny bling from Want 2 Scrap accents the lamp shades and the center of the "F" on refresh. Let's see, what else? Oh! That length of lace was a major score during a local thrifting session! It is oh so pretty!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you can also throwdown your shabby chair and REFRESH soon! And for all you mommies out there, I hope you get to do whatever refreshes and renews your heart and soul next sunday, May 9th, Mother's Day here in the states.
