Grandma Eleanor loves growing flowers and she loves to share them. So most of the time when I pick her up, she has some fresh picked flowers from her little garden. Most of the time it’s roses. This time it was zinnias.
Aren’t they pretty?
And check out Cowgirl Eleanor’s purse! Isn’t she a hoot? I’ve seen her carrying this a bunch of times, so it must be her favorite.
Eleanor finished the ottoman last weekend while we were out of town. She did a great job on it. I’m completely happy with it. She put a pretty big hem in it, but I think I can live with that.
And for your enjoyment, another video of Eleanor while we were fitting the slipcover on the chair for adjustments.
Eleanor sometimes talks about sex, oh my goodness, is that ever funny (no, didn’t catch that on video). We all just look at each other with big eyes and pretend that she is not talking. about. that. subject. Basically we just have to ignore her when she gets into that mode. I won’t even tell you what all she says. 🙂 She will blurt out whatever’s on her mind at any moment. She has a man friend right next door to her that she visits regularly and calls him Pop (or old fart, interchangeably) and he’s even older than she is. He lost his wife many years ago and they are friends. She said to me on the last visit that Pop’s son had been over there with shorts and t-shirt on and sure was looking sexy. 🙂 See, she’s a total mess.
We are working on the chair one more day this week and then I think it will be finished. Hallelujah! I’ve got the houndstooth fabric cut out and I’m going to sew those myself. With some braided trim. 😉
See! I’m getting brave.
If there is enough interest, I’m going to do a beadboard wallpaper party in a week or two. If you used the beadboard wallpaper and want to join the party, let me know by leaving a comment. I’m just not sure how many will participate, but I think it would be fun to see all the different projects ya’ll are using it for. I know I’ve seen at least 2 other blogs using it.
