The Big Fish & A Little Sewing

Happy Tuesday!!!
Thought I would share my beautiful whites with you.
This chair I received in a trade from my friend Debbie.
It is down wrapped and the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in.
She made this wonderful slipcover for it which makes it even more special.
I have added some down pillows to make it oh so soft!!!

Ok, so you all know sewing isn't my cup of tea. It's not that I don't know how. I am a former quilter, its just I cant find the time. With soap & lotion making, working full time, being a mom of three girls and my junkin fun there is just no time.....However, I had this problem with a pillow cover that just wouldn't stay closed. The pillow kept falling out driving my little mind crazy...
Sew I Sewed two little buttons with ties and ta da.....Problem solved.
Very Pretty!!!!

Saturday night Christopher caught the biggest Chinook Salmon I have ever seen.
It weighted 45lbs. I have never seen one up close.
Boy are they ugly and some serious sharp teeth.
This fish took Mike over an hour to cut it up and two batches of brine to soak it.
It turned out sooo good!!!

Be sure to come by Saturday and say "Hi" at the Camas Vintage Street Fair.
Check out the Kindred Roses Blog for more info.
Also, I will be taking over some new treasures to Monticello so be sure to come check it out.
Have a great week
Blessing Julie
