Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity

By Desiree68 @pullyoursocksup
At a creative loose-end on Friday, I got a call.
"I've got to clear out some of your old stuff in storage, do you want it back or shall I dump it?"
Errr ... can you deliver now?  If so, yes please!
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity A pair of hideous chairs arrived and were the first to be attacked by my cleaning cloths and screwdriver.
I unscrewed the seats, hacked off the cruddy fabric, cleaned up the vinyl then ...
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity Tah dah!!  I used some of the gorgeous 1970s thick cotton fabric I found for a buck at Aid for the Blind a wee while ago.
Upholstery tacks kept the fabric in place, seats screwed back on and I'm stoked.
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity Another piece of thick retro cotton was used for the other chair.
I don't like matching furniture sets, so these chairs make me VERY happy.
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity So is Lily.
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity Next victim, this old kitchen sideboard I found on the side of the road years ago.
It's lovely to have her back, she makes the kitchen look homely.
I enjoyed jigging about with old treasures like these Holly Hobbie framed embroideries I bought from eBay about six years ago.
You'll notice the wee speakers on the left, there's a great lumping sub-woofer under the sideboard because I seriously CANNOT cook or do anything productive in the kitchen without music.
The gun is staying.
I can't have too much twee in my life and dancing with a plastic gun and wooden spoon is kinda awesome.

Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity This area of the lounge got some de-clutterfication treatment with this old bookcase, another roadside find several years ago. I like its different sized compartments, but I didn't realize we had so many books cluttering up corners of the house. At least they have a home now and I can enjoy lying on the comfy couch and admiring them from afar.  That's all I can manage after lumping all that gear about.
The glorious tutu frock was a gift from Hotcheeks Helga and is simply too gorgeous to hide away when it's not being worn! Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity I created a bit of a music center for The Phoenix using the hall table from the lounge, which had been cluttered up with board games.
Gotta find an easily accessible spot for the games now.
Finding homes for everything can be hell!

Like Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaign in the 80s, I don't think it had much effect on anyone.
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity Unlike these naughty boys.
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity Oh now that's better, that wall really needed some lovely nastiness to pep it up a bit.
Too much frilly frou-frou simply will not do.
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity Yesterday I was all sweetness and light again and made this cushion cover.
Patchwork on one side and this seersucker cotton I bought from Vinnies.
Rare Flashes of Manic Creativity Wanna see some party action at Tamera's virtual birthday bash last weekend?
It was a BIG night, someone left their snake behind and we lost Clare.
