Sitting Pretty



I bought these chairs and table from different places; yard sales and second hand stores. Last summer I found the table at a garage sale, it was marked $5, but I got it for $2. I love it! They are very sturdy, but need some work. I am not motivated enough to go through the process of sanding and painting and putting on the finish right now. But I wanted to give Rachel a pretty place to sit when she plays house. So made these zabutoun (Japanese for floor pillow).





She loved it!! That afternoon we had a tea party.

What a lucky girl to have a mom who makes such pretty things. My poor girls don't! Plus, I don't think I'd trust my girls to play with anything so pretty!

Those pillows you made Rachel are really cute! Speaking of fun places to sit, have you ever introduced a kotatsu in your home? I've always wondered what those were like.

Those pillows are so cute. Perfect for a tea party or a little quiet reading. The Japanese sure have the right idea don't they?
