A Chair...A Donation...and Lots of Rain!

A wonderful customer of mine asked me to turn this vintage chair into a flower planter. ( I forgot to take the before picture) She wanted something to match her vintage orange enamelware bowl that will be placed in the seat.
And she has a passion for paisley, so if you look closer, you can see a few paisley flowers in the mix. She will finish the transformation by taking the seat of the chair out and fitting the bowl.
This one she wants blue, green, and turquoise flowers.....I will post a picture when I get it finished.

About 5 miles to the north of us is the Buckeye Community Club. They are having their 2nd annual quilt show, where quilts will be on display from Northern Colorado and Cheyenne Wyoming Heritage Quilters. I made this sign for their silent auction.
It is painted on a very old door of a set back cupboard. This is a Renee Mullins design.
and finally...
THE RAIN......
We had almost 2 inches of rain last night in about 3 1/2 hours. The picture is not good because of the night time, but this is the sidewalk to our front got pretty soggy!!!!!


  1. Love the chair Doris,and the sign is adorable! We too have had alot of rain here in New Zealand, so far this month we have only had 2 fine days-getting really soggy also!

  2. Love the chair. That sign is awesome! Love your work.


  3. You do beautiful work !the chair is absolutely gorgeous .Cute signs too. Hugs,Jen

  4. Good evening Doris, I love the chair. The painting is absolutely beautiful. You're friend should be so happy with the results. The sign is also cute. Love the saying. We are getting rain as I type, the first since the storms passed thru the south about a month ago. Mr. P has had to water our garden almost every day because of the hot temps and no rain. Sounds like music to our ears hearing rain dropping outside. Have a great evening.
