The Green Chair and More...Mid-Century Style

Do you start one project and before you finish that one start another one, and before you finish that one, start another??? Well, I do. When inspiration strikes, I change gears and go!!! In the midst of trying to finish my studio and the "old girl" chair, and trying to keep my etsy shops stocked and special orders up, I have redone another chair. It is a 1970s dining chair in sort of a Mediterranean style. I painted it avocado green and covered the seat with a vintage mid-century barkcloth in a mobile design. She turned out really funky - green is my favorite color and I have been into this shade for quite some time now. I just don't need to get carried away and buy myself an avocado green leather sofa - that would be a huge mistake. So here she is along with some other mid-century style items from one of my shops...

Crocheted Scarves

Remember that saying from the movie Field of Dreams...if you build it, they will come. Well, that is sort of what happend with my scarf making. I had so many made up and I was not sure what I would do with them, kept thinking I would run into a herd of people with cold necks one day and just give them away! LOL! But right before Christmas, I received a scarf order from a company out of California for 40 scarves. I was thrilled and what made it so fabulous is that they wanted them all to be different, no specifications, they set me free to create. And those of you that craft and are artists know that that is the most fabulous thing, to be free to create, no holes barred! I already had about 30 in my shop, so I cleaned it out and pulled out all my yarns and got busy creating - oh, the bliss! I wanted to share with you today a few of my favorite creations. I love mixing the yarns, blending them and using them in blocks. It was such fun and surely did help Santa out with his shopping list...

Thanks for stopping by - have a great week!
