Perfect souvenir? circa 1985

11 Oct

Needlepoint canvas purchased in France

“Margot, Creations de Paris.  LE CASTEL d’apres Laura”

Yes, this canvas was well within my budget for a souvenir from France in 1985.  The merits also included being light weight, easily packed and a remembrance of travels while needlepointing.  The problem is… it is still unfinished in 2017…over 30 years later!

I’m back to work on it with great lighting, a support frame and good seating.

From Houzz: Desks for small spaces

Unintentional…. furniture theme this month, thanks to inspiration from Houzz Ideabooks.  My August 2nd post featured a reproduction “Ice Box” used for shoe storage/dresser plus a link to “Savvy Shoe Storage”.  On August 16th, I posted a photo of a pair of upholstered barrel back chairs paired with link to “Antiques Today” from Houzz.

Here I go again.  My favorite small desk from the Houzz Ideabook is number 4, the drop-down secretary from Pottery Barn.  Surprise! maybe not… I have this small cherry drop-down writing desk of my grandfather’s in our guest room.  It is paired with a chair featuring needle point seat cover made by my mother.
