French Style Confession Time!!

What can I say?  I love chairs!  Yep, I admit it!  I love chairs!
And lately I'm drawn to the...dare I say...French inspired!
Not only chairs but any item that resembles Frenchy!!

I know, I know...is it a sickness?  The only cure that I know requires some shopping...
( well really a lot of  LOOKIN'  ) ...a J-GRITS must have a plan!!

 For example take this French Gold Chair...the fabric against the gold frame is just eye popping!!

Or this shiny white leatherette studded armchair...

Constructed in North Carolina the Cora Chair...

 Check out this wonderful remake...

Many of you out in blogland have restyled and reclaimed so many wonderful 'frenchy' things and this chair represents just one!   I couldn't list them all but do not fear I have looked at several!
(say hundreds, no thousands)

 Oh yeah, about my addiction...
Shopping at our local Home Goods... 
(Don't y'all just love HG? As my grandfather use to say 'you could lose a crop in there',  
meaning I spend way too much time in that store!)  
...I found several French inspired thingys...

Notice the nailheads...
Covering a box...
And the sides...

Another side...

Well I have the inspiration.  Now to find the perfect item to restyle.  I've looked through my stash and nothing 'hits me' as the ONE! Does that mean more shopping?  Yes, I think so!

Need to stop by my local fabric store...

How about y'all?  Do you have a 'confession' to make too!!

See ya down the junkin' road!!

Just a Swingin' on the Porch

Second verse, same as the first

Earlier, I shared gorgeous porches that were featured in one of my favorite magazines, Southern Living magazine.  Today I will feature some of the swings that make porch living absolutely fantastic!

Notice all the comfy pillows too!

Extra long custom made swing...invites napping too!

Notice the brick floor...love the mantle!
Adding the perfect rug...
Screened in comfort...
Swings...a must have on a porch!  I'm toying with the idea of adding a swinging bed to our porch!  Now to get the hubby liking that idea too!

See ya down the junkin' road!
