Just Rockin' That Toile!

Let's start by saying I am so excited to be a spanking brand new blogger! 
During the summer of 2011 B.B. (Before Blogging), I'd just mostly snap some quick pix of finished projects out on my front porch.  Sometimes I'd stage them a little and at other times, not so much.  This vintage rocker in "Scenic Savannah", a black Waverly linen toile edged in burlap was a salvaged sweet up-cycle...

I also took a run-of-the-mill brown pressback & finished it out in my favorite cream...

The original caning was punched through, so I just tore it out and had my dear husband make an insert from plywood.  A little foam, batting, pulling and stapling made this "biscuit" seat...cute? 

But oh, I think that rocker is rockin' the toile best of all...whatcha think?

Thanks for stopping by...I so enjoyed our front porch visit...come back anytime!

Now this new blogger is off try some links.  Oh boy...wish me luck?
