The DIY Showoff Featured My Houndstooth Upholstered Chairs

I'm back from BlodPodium, the Canadian Design Bloggers Meetup & the Interior Design Show.  What a fun weekend!  I can't wait to share with you who I met, what I learned and what I won.  But first, some news:

I enjoyed an internet-free weekend because I forced myself to spend any computer time on the first chapter of my dissertation - due tomorrow.  Eegads.  So you can imagine my surprise when, upon returning to the world of internet and popping in on a few blogs before bedtime, I spotted my very own DIY project on The DIY Showoff.  Roeshel previously featured my DIY Framed Bakelite Brooches and over the weekend featured the houndstooth upholstered kitchen chairs Hubby & I just completed.  I love Roeshel's blog and am so flattered she has found my projects DIY Showoff worthy.  If you've seen her recent stairway transformation, you'll see why I consider kind words from her about my DIY prowess a high compliment. 

These chairs got some love from The DIY Showoff.

These framed brooches got some love, too.



  1. Congrats on the feature! I'm glad you had fun at the Meetup, and I can't wait to hear all about it. Good luck on the dissertation.

  2. Another great feature for you...congratulations super star!!! I'm dying to see your photos and hear all about your fun weekend.

  3. Well deserved love too, I might add! The chairs and framed brooches are so lovely and inspiring!

  4. Thanks everyone! I appreciate the support.

    I'm not trying to be all "braggy" about the project-love. Just making sure I send some blog love back to The DIY Showoff and thank Roeshel for the feature. Some lovely new blog friends have been made as a result :)
