FRENCH CHAIRS~ WELCOME TO FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY!


Since it's a day for some green ~
I thought I would share my favorite french needlepoint chairs.
I shared them before, they have since moved over to the fireplace in the bedroom.


I L*O*V*E these chairs.


LOVE them.


I found them a few years ago


and
instantly fell in love with their perfect shade of apple green velvet,
the pink and yellow needlepoint roses.


The fantastic french carved frames with shabby old white patina...
oooh... Perfection!


Love when you find something that is just perfect for you and fits in your home
just like it was always meant to be there.


The carvings are absolutely beautiful ~
the ribbon and details around the back and the colors in the
fabric and needlepoint are just fantastic.


Did I mention yet that I LOVE them?
lol!
:)

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!!

*** The recent events in Japan have been devastating, as you know.

  22. I love your chairs! So beautiful! They remind me of my "honorary grandmother", a dear old lady who was the grandmother mine wasn't. She loved to show off her house, so every time I visited her, she always stopped at two chairs similiar to yours and told me how she did the needlpoint herself when she was very young.

  44. Hi Courtney,
    Looks like your party is growing! Congratulations! You have such a pretty blog and put so much effort into all you post. I'm happy to see you growing.

    I kept coming back over to check out the links being added and each time kept looking at those chairs, I've decided that I like them too.

    They are very different and almost quirky in a way. All rooms need something fun and quirky...I think so at least.

    These chairs are also a testament to needlepoint! That is something I lack the appreciation for. (being PC here lol) However, I can honestly say needlepoint would be allowed to grace my doors, ONLY if you decide to gift your fun quirky chairs to me. =0) hee, hee

    Thanks for such an eye-opening post.

    Hugs,
    Shanna
