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!

Summer Changes to the Front Porch

Just a short one today, to let you know I'm still alive. I've just been very busy with lots of Summer projects inside and outside of the home.
My inspiration for the arrangement above, came from the magazine photo, below. 

Below, I recently found these new chair cushions at Home Goods.  LOVE that store!  : )
I hope you're all doing well.  I know I've been MIA.
