The Ottoman

A while back....
 mr. & mrs. frenchi
came to life

i have been waiting patiently for the
arrival of their inevitable

but with a bit of
she now joins her parents

we don't have a
~ruffly home~

i wanted ruffly....
so i wasn't quite sure what to do
thought we'd try a box pleat...

loves sitting here and putting his feet
up on the
~extra heavy duty~
 leather we put on her!

  5. Hello my DEAR Kathy!

    Oh, I have been missing your inspiring blog! I'm so sorry, but I simply can't find enough hours in my day. Matthew just started on solids, so it's super busy around here! :-)

    I love this, Kathy! You're so good!!!

    Wishing you a great day, my friend.

  6. I love it! I have been looking for a candidate for an ottoman for our house - yours is fabulous. I put my girlie-ruffly things in a spare/guest bedroom - otherwise the house is a mixture of English - French Cottage - so glad you visited that I might return the call and become your newest follower!

  7. I think you got it exactly right - and if it suits your husband, well then you get double A+!!! It's so nice to see you back, blogging, and to be back reading, myself, after some time off for the wedding. One of these days we'll just have to get together on your island or mine!

  8. You have an amazing talent and I love following amazingly talented people. Wow! I've been taking a little stroll down your blog and I do believe we are kindred spirits. . . only you're the one with the most creative ability. I also love Goodwill, yard sales, flea markets and I blog about my projects in furniture re-dos, art, paper crafting, photography, etc. I am your newest follower. Please accept my warm invitation to visit and hopefully to follow me, too. Connie :)

  9. Hi Kathy, Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting and thank you even more for following my little blog. Blogging has certainly enriched my life. I have met so many lovely creative people and the sharing of ideas is more than I even could have imagined. Besides all that, it is saving me probably somewhere between $150 to $250 a year in magazine subscriptions. Who needs magazines when you have friends from all over the world sending you gardening tips, decorating and craft ideas, yummy recipes, travel and history reports, etc. Every time a renewal shows up in my mailbox I just rip it up. I have fallen head over heels in love with this new social media. I'm looking very forward to visiting your blog and to becoming good blogging friends. Connie :)

  10. That is just the cutest little ottomon Kathy. I think every girl need a little ruffly!

  11. Oh, yes! It looks wonderful. What a great job you did and I love the pleats you put on the skirt! You did a fantastic job.
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia :)

  12. Oh yes the ottoman is gorgeous as is the room and the view outside!


  13. Hi sweetheart,

    I hope you're enjoying your summer and have a wonderful 4th of July!

    Wishing you a really blessed week, sweetie!
