A Great Find For My French Chairs and French Hats~

I have been looking for some new chair pads for my antique French bentwood café chairs for awhile. Most cushions left me feeling a bit like Goldilocks~too large, too hard, too thin, too something….
I finally found some linen pads from Wisteria that work fairly well. When I purchased them they were on sale for $13. (A steal!) I see they are now back to $19. Compared to other companies that is still a good price.

Even after a few weeks the cushions are still so fluffy that Sweet Boy exclaims “It’s almost like sitting on a whoopee cushion.”

The fabric is nice and machine washable. My only complaint is that I wish the ties were longer as I like to tie chair ties on ballerina style.

Many of you have asked about my favorite hat. Here it is in aqua, brim flipped up:

Some of the reasons why I love this hat are that it comes in many colors, it’s lightweight, you can roll it up into a suitcase and it pops right back into shape. Another reason to love it right now is that there is a giveaway going on for a free French Basketeer hat and basket at Art By Karena.

Comments are turned off here, so that you can go toss your name in the hat. (Sorry I couldn’t resist. :)
