A tattered toddler chair

Hello my friends ~ This is going to be my project for the weekend ~

My tattered antique toddler chair ;-)

Hubby and I found this at the bi-annual Treasure Hunt at the local Heritage Village for $5.00.  It has been neglected and is a little tattered and torn  ~ BUT.. this weekend I'm going to LOVE her.  After all Valentine's Day is coming, isn't it?   I will share her with you when I am finished.

Before I go, I also want to share with you the nice little pretties that I received in the mail today ~ sigh ~ I love getting pretties in the mail ~

I visited SaltboxTreasures etsy shop and found them ~ aren't the tags absolutely adorable and the lavender sachet ~ well it just smells divine ;-)

So ~ what are your plans for the weekend?

  7. Love that little chair! What a deal you got. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  8. That chair will be so sweet when you are done, I am quite certain and I look forward to seeing it done.
    This weekend, let's see, I will go shopping tomorrow morning, get groceries at Super Store. Then in the evening we are having a couples night and the men in our church are taking their wives to dinner at a nice Steak house. Should be lots of fun! It's always fun to spend time with our best friends. Then Sunday is church.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs, Cindy

  9. Hi, me again, I meant to tell you that your tags are very sweet, I want to learn how to make those.
    And also, I was very sorry to hear that you lost your mom at age 27. I know you felt like you still needed your mom, I know I did and I was about 34.
    Hugs, Cindy

  10. ooooh, oooooh, ooooooh!!!! I love this chair!!!! and $5.00!!! WOW!! That is awesome!!! I cannot wait to see your pretty transformation, and I KNOW it's going to knock our socks off!!! YAY!! fun fun fun, I LOVE makeovers!! :) Love the tags too, and lavender sachets are the BEST. Lavender is the best!! I could not live without my lavender linen spray, puts me to dreamland every night. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend friend, and I'm eagerly anticipating some gorgeous Toddler Chair photos!! xoxo

  11. Thanks for coming by and visiting. Well if you ever do get chickens it will be life changing. I have a friend that we loved going antiquing and out to lunch and all of those girl things, Our kids got married and we had a few empty nests, she and I both got chicks, then we started going to each others house to sit and watch chickens and the we would talk about different chicken things for hours. Who would have thought
    so I still love antiquing, and going out to lunch, but there is nothing like sitting in the back yard watching chickens and having a tea party. :)

  12. Hi Marianne, Thank you for the very sweet comments! I'm glad you are happy with your items! Thank you so much for visiting and shopping at my etsy shop!!
    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  13. Hi Marianne:

    Home from Houston with a thank you for stopping by.

    The weather there was beautiful this morning as I walked the golf course they live on with the warmth of the sun shining on my face and the promise of a new day. In the mid 60's.

    Happy to be home, even if it isn't quite as warm here.....happy to see my husband and he was soooo happy to have me home.

    Your Valentines Day celebration table was precious!


  14. Hi Marianne,
    I cannot wait to see the chair all done! Hurry, hurry! :-) Have a wonderful day.

    Hugs and Kisses,
