Grandma Ruffle

Introducing my latest cushion

GRANDMA RUFFLE..


I really should have taken this shot holding a broom or mop
or maybe even a vacuum cleaner...
As none of these jobs were started while I was
preoccupied with this gem...
And what a gigantic task this was...
But I am more than chuffed with the result...


Trying to take a pic thou was tad of a dilemma...
I wandered aimlessly through the house
trying to locate a item
any item that would...
One-look good and Two-be the perfect colour...
I had almost given up until
I stumbled upon a very old
and half string less guitar that the kids
had been mucking around with...
I do recall picking it up a few years back at a garage sale
and yeah! it fitted the criteria...


When all set and ready with camera perched on a chair and
hitching up my sagging behind
I waited...
You see although I had thought of everything
I could possible think of
I did forget one detail...
The weather!!!
You see it was in fact a glorious day here at the cottage...
Too clear and glorious I might add...
You see
Mr Vintage is now so shiny that when the sun shines
upon him he "bling's"
Not a subtle "bling" either
a very glary can't see a hand in front of my face "bling"
So I had to wait and wait and when I had almost
decided that today might not be the right day
to take a photo of the most
Wondrous "Grandma Ruffle...
It happened...
A big fluffy cloud strolled over from nowhere
and "click"...


I will be updating my etsy shop with this and more
in about a week...
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend
filled with sunshine
and the occasional white fluffy cloud...
