After a lovely although wet week at the caravan, we are ready to start packing. Finally the family room sofa and chair were taken away today and I could open the packaging on my new chairs. The chairs have been piled in the playroom for the past three weeks and I have been dying to get the plastic wrap off!

They are so lovely and I am really pleased with them!

They look so clean and new that I have had to set some ground rules! No food or drink to go any where near, no shoes and no dark jeans! I didn't tell them I paid extra for the scotchguard but better safe than sorry. I finally got hold of some grain sacks and they arrived at the post office today. Haven't been to collect them yet as I still have to pay the customs charge. I forgot that I would have to pay that as well as postage from the states, so it has ended up quite expensive! I am hoping to make them into some cushions to sit on my nice new chairs, will have to keep out the sewing machine when we pack!
We have now some space to start piling the boxes up so I had better get going. Two weeks today!


  1. Hello! I am stopping by from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia - I LOVE the new chairs!? Where did you get them? I especially love the first one, it would go perfectly with the english rolled arm sofa I am searching for!


  2. They are both really pretty. Hubby would like the second one. We need to replace his chair and this would be great!
