Meeting again


Just a quick post to let you know I’m still around…. kind of. The past couple of weeks have gone by so fast, and still there is not really much to tell you.

This is a chair I have upholstered nearly 5 years ago. I just liked to play with the fabrics and try to make something out of this plain grey chair. It is still one of my favorite pieces in the house and it is holding up quite nicely.

I had some fabrics left and this time I used them for something much easier: a simple draught excluder.

It is just half an inch too long, but I did that on purpose, because the draught on this door is really too much, and this way it definitely will help ( I at least hope so).

And then there is this:

This year I didn’t have any New Years resolutions but one; to read more books in English. It is so easy to read only Dutch translations, but as one of the reasons I started this blog was because I wanted to improve my English, there are more ways to do so, and reading is actually one of the most obvious. So for a good start, I bought these three novels ( and read the first two).

The covers of these books are simply amazing, don’t you think?

Groetjes, Dorien

What a wonderful looking chair Dorien - it looks comfortable as well as cheerful wth it's new fabrics! Hopefully the draught stopper will do it's job well. The books do look wonderful! Hope the stories were as good as the covers :-)
Blessings

I love the chair and a great idea to make a draught excluder. The books covers were certainly a delight to see, they certainly drew your eye. Take care.

So lovely to see that you are reading REAL books too lol
In this ever technological age of Ipads and tablets, Kindles etc.
You cannot beat the feel, the smell and handling of a real book : )
That's a fantastic chair renewal and a sturdy, practical and attractive draught excluder too!
