A Thank You and a Chair

Yesterday when checking email and comments on my blog, I was pleased, honored, and oh, so excited to discover that my chicken feeder plate rack post..... drum roll please, was featured on the Have a Daily Cup from Mrs. Olson blog, hosted by Jann! Jann hosts a blogging party once a week on Thursdays and invites bloggers to "share" something you love. Please visit her blog, and join the party!!

I have had a couple of pretty rough days at work this week, and this was such a nice surprise! Having one of my "creations" chosen to be featured....well, I just can't say enough about how great it made me feel!! Thank you so much Jann!!

Today as I drove into the driveway of the Xavier Ct. House, I decided that the front of the Xavier Ct. House needed a little something more in front of the birch trees....

I had an Adirondack chair in the backyard and thought maybe it would be better in front of the birch trees....

I love the red, but the chair needs a fresh coat of paint.... I was thinking about using this as inspiration....

but in looking at the pillow, which was given to me by one of the Flea Market Friends, I think I may go with the blue in the pillow...

What do you think?



  1. Congrats on being featured!! So exciting!! I think the blue or a minty green would be pretty!! Have a great night!! xo Heather

  2. Well, you know I love red, but the blue will be pretty,too.
    Love the vintage pillow.

  3. Blue's my favourite colour but a sage green would look good I think. I suppose it all depends on whether you want it to blend in with the garden or make a statement! Well done on being featured. I hope you have a good weekend to make up for the not so good week at work.

  4. Blue would be really pretty. Or you could go with the pinkish-red that's in the pillow. (different from the orangish red that the chair is now.) That might look cool with the roses.
