Day Dreaming About Dobby

Yes, I admit it, I took these pictures sitting at my desk at work. I often stop and day dream.

I bought these at the 9 3/4 store at San Pancras station, London. There was no way I was going to pass on these beauties!
Dobby is delightful, even cast in metal. Dobby will always be alive in our hearts 🙂

Furniture with soul

I am addicted to restoring old pieces of furniture that I find. Each piece of furniture that I refurbish has a story to tell. This chair was full of horse hair and springs, dating back to somewhere around the 1930’s.

I found this beat up rocking chair sitting in the street, for free. For less than $40.00, I gave this old girl a lift, a tuck and a snip! I chose not to fix every nook and cranny because I want some of the wear and tear to show, some of it’s history. I had some left over fabric, so I made a quick pillow.
