Pink Saturday Rescue and Revive…

Last summer I found several items at a thrift store. Things I thought I would eventually up-cycle. I don’t always have an exact plan as to what I will do with an item at first. Often it takes months for me to decide what technique I’ll use. One item I found was a little stool. I sanded it a little and painted it white. Then it sat for months. Nothing would tickle my muse. I glanced at it one day and thought perhaps I could make it into a little tuffet. I considered painting it with pastel designs or making a little fabric cushion for the top. I could not decide and walked away from it again. Then one day I was browsing through the free images June at Dezinaworld has in her Olde Curiosity Shop. Oh my! There she was, the perfect little image for my tuffet. The perfect image for my “Little Miss Muffet Shabby-Chic Tuffet!”  Thanks once again to June. Another one of her awesome vintage images provides the just right inspiration to spark my muse.

The nursery rhyme is; “Little Miss Muffet, she sat on a tuffet eating of curds and whey; There came a great spider who sat down beside her and frightened Miss Muffet away.”





I’m going to put this rescued and revived shabby-chic footstool in my Etsy shop. The stool is about 10 ¾ inches tall and 8 inches wide. It has the complete “Little Miss Muffet” nursery rhyme written around the edge of the seat. Below the verse is a layer of soft, pale pink, lace. Cotton Candy and Crystal Stickles glitter drips down the legs. Strands of pearls decorate the leg turnings. A sweet addition for a little girl’s bedroom or playroom; a perfect place to perch a stuffed toy, doll, or a stack of vintage nursery rhyme books.

Thank you Beverly for the fun party each week. Visit here at “How Sweet The Sound” to connect with more Pink Saturday participants.
