Shabby Pillows & 3 More Sleeps Till The Little Deer Market!!


December 2, 2015 by Terry

Most people do not know this but I suffer from low back pain caused by a small ‘deformity’ in my low back.  I was born with an extra vertebra that has fused itself to my hip.

After months of injections to relieve pain, my Dr. decided I would be a good candidate to have RF Neurotomy performed.  For those of you who do not know what that is, it is when they take a metal probe and burn the nerve endings along the spine to deaden them and relieve pain.

Well, yesterday was the big day and I nervously went and had it done.  I was super scared!  The words ‘burning’ and ‘nerve endings’ should not be in the same sentence as far as I’m concerned  ;)

After having five children you would think I shouldn’t be afraid of the pain but…

Anyhoo!  I am so happy to say that all went well and I am feeling just fine.  I feel a little uncomfortable today but that is to be expected.  I am looking forward to some pain free DIY in the near future!

I know I should be relaxing for the next couple of days but I am sooooo excited over this Market that I can barely sit still!  I thought I’d share some DIY shabby pillows I built for the market.  They aren’t anything super fantastic but they are simple and pretty!

Don’t forget to pop by tomorrow for Making Broken Beautiful!  It’s an all things Christmas party for the month of December so anything goes!  Link up all your Christmas goodies, crafts, recipes and projects!  Have a great day all!

    I’m glad the procedure went well and I pray for a swift recovery. It sounds like you’re excited about the market coming up soon. Love the pillows!! They look fabulous!!


  4. Oh my, that doesn’t sound like a fun procedure, Terry. I hope you’re feeling more comfortable today. Your pillows are so pretty! Good Luck this weekend at the Little Deer Market! If it’s anything like the ones I attend here in the Edmonton area last weekend, you will be one busy gal!

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
