In Love with my French Love Seat

I am tickled pink today.  I have just picked up my latest eBay purchase - a beautiful French Love seat/sofa.

It ticks all the right boxes for me.  It's white

It's upholstered in genuine Cabbages & Roses fabric in a lovely soft blue and taupe combination.

It has beautiful detailing.

And I bought it just the way it is.

For once I was able to find something completed just the way I would have done it.  No sanding, no painting no wrestling with upholstery.  The reason I didn't have to do anything, is that this lovely lady had already done the hard work.

Donna is a lovely lass from the UK, living in Brisbane with her husband and 2 little kids.  She restores furniture and sells it through eBay and direct to clients who've discovered the wonderful work she does.  You can find her on eBay as don-don-down-under.  She is pictured here with a beautiful french gray dresser she has restored for a client.

I am so happy with it.  I keep looking at it and stroking the fabric.  Come on, I'm sure I'm not the only one?  One more look at it.


I am sharing all Donna's hard work at these parties - Yippee
