Taking Stock

I'm sure all readers of this blog know about the "thrill of the hunt."  I love poking around estate sales, glancing up and down alleys, and making frequent stops at the resale shops.  Coming home with a bargain that I'll be able to turn into something is a thirst that is never quenched.  However, we all know that can lead to a pile of stuff we never get to because, we are out there getting our thrills as we chase down that next great deal.  Staying close to home these past few weeks got me poking around in my own stuff.

  And this is what came of that.

I had sample piece of this Osborn & Little fabric.  After turning it into a pillow this is all that remained.
I bought a strata lounger about a year ago at TFA. This week I decided it could use a pillow.
The trim is something I have had for at least 10 years.  The colors in the trim are a deep purple and a dark green.  It worked beautifully with the fabric and....I had j-u-s-t enough to make it around the pillow.  Actually one inch more would have been nice, but I made it work.
I spend more time than I like to admit in this chair.
Reading, watching TV, playing on the computer, and sometimes even sleeping there through the night.
The flower in this fabric is a color I have elsewhere in the room.

You may remember it from this post.  My goal is to start pulling this room together.  This represents one small step in that direction. 

And I am giving myself a pat on the back for making use of two items I had on hand. 

Actually I had the pillow form and the pillow back fabric as well.  So, a big win!  More room in the closet, something completed for the bedroom project, and justification that "I'll use that someday", is really true.
