So in the previous post green with envy or is it just the cording, I posted a photo of a chair I slipped for a client. This particular chair I have coveted ever since I completed. My husband and I combed craigslist for what seemed like years to find a chair similar in style and shape. The above is what we were able to come up with and we love it!! It is a Federal Period Wing Chair circa late 1700's. The chair measures in at 46" tall and 32" wide, you would never think finding a chair taller than 43" would be so hard until you try to locate one for yourself!

Have you ever completed a project for a client and thought, "Geez I wish that was mine!" Such was the case with this chair. Even before I slipped it I was in love with the shape of the piece. It is a large chair with graceful lines that seems to swallow you up when you sit in it ... I LOVED it! I was in such despair when I delivered it to the client; I thought I will never find a chair this great for myself. Good news it took over two years of combing craigslist daily and scouring antique markets but I was able to find myself a similar style chair. Check back later and to see the pics of my new chair which is in need of a little love) and hear the story behind this truly fabulous find :)
Leave me a note I’d love to hear about your hard to part with projects!

I have been creating keepsake garments for little ones now for almost seven years. So you can only imagine how I felt when I found out I was having a baby girl. Ask anyone I love having a son, but you can only sew things for your little boy for so long before it becomes odd. While I was pregnant with my daughter I used to spend my days dreaming about making an over the top Christening gown. I was so excited that I finally had the opportunity to create such a gown for my own child!
I have always been a big fan of Martha Pullen and all her knowledge of heirloom techniques. This dress combines one of her dress designs along with some of my own special details, which I added to make the dress more a reflection of my own personal taste/style.
I am so happy that I had the opportunity to create such an elaborate gown. I can imagine her as a grown woman holding it and thinking about how I stayed up late at night when she was a just a newborn to create a special garment for her blessing day.
