The Best Seat in the House...Finale

Okay, time to "fess up".   For some reason I stalled on finishing this slipcover last Summer.  It finally occurred to me that I wasn't going to get it done.  So I commissioned my good friend, Julie, who makes slipcovers all the time, to finish the job for me.  All I cared about at this point, was completing the project.  So here you go...one year later!!  I know...............

Old photo of the chair, below:

Julie, you're my HERO!!!
This completely AMAZING pillow, below, came from Pottery Barn and was a birthday gift to me last month.  It's 24" inches square.  LOVE IT!!!
I leave you today with pics of my new "do".  The photo below was taken just a couple of weeks ago.  You can see how dark my roots had gotten.  My highlights were disappearing. 
Kim to the rescue!  You're a miracle worker, friend. 
We also put lots more layers in.  I hope you're enjoying your Summer!

You look so cute...what beautiful hair you have! Love the pillow and you did a great job on the slip cover. I wouldn't know where to start! Happy summer!

I love your slipcover! I love it when a project finally gets done! I love your hair! You look so young. Definitely not old enough to be a grandma. Mimi

How good does it feel to have another project completed?!! I'm loving your new 'do' too...colour & layers are gorgeous, add so much texture!! Seeing your stars & stripes cushion cover brings to mind all the union jack accessories available in the UK at the moment!! With the Queens diamond Jubilee & the Olympics we can't get away from patriotic merchandise!! Nice, but in small doses please!! Tasteful, like your cushion! :D

Hi M.L. Julie is my hero too. She taught me to slip cover. I've since given that particular chair away but am thinking my front room chair may need a lift in the future. Thanks for sharing.

P.s. I've never known you to "not" look cute. You are beautiful inside and out.

Receber sua visita será uma surpresa maravilhosa.
Gostaria que também seguisse o meu espaço que, a partir de hoje torna-se extensão de sua casa, para minha alegria.

With love to you!

PSALM 23

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD,
That's Relationship!

I shall not want,
This supply is!

MAKE ME WALK IN GREEN PASTURES,
This is rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters,
This is refreshing!

He restores my soul,
This is healing!

GUIDE ME FOR THE PATHS OF JUSTICE,
That's Guidance!

FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR NAME,
This is on purpose!

THOUGH I WALK THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH,
That's Testing!

I will fear no evil,
That's Protection!

Thou art with me,
That is fidelity!

YOUR STICK AND YOUR staff they comfort me,
This is discipline!

Prepare a table before ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES,
This is hope!

UNGE MY HEAD WITH OIL
That's Consecration!

And my cup runneth over,
That's Abundance!

SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY A follow me EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE,
This is a blessing!

AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
That's Security!

FOR LONG DAYS,
This is eternity!



May the Lord bless you and keep you!

Lucy.
