New slipcovers and dining room changes

I love change!  When it comes to my house, that is.
I am a chronic "refresher".  I don't need to new furniture, but I do have to frequently change pillows, throws and accessories or just rearrange the furniture.

I got these new Ikea slipcovers for my Hendriksdal chairs from Ebay.  Love the vintage feeling floral ♥
It balances and brightens my dining room to prepare for fall
I put my french toile quilt over the back of the bench
 The pillows are new ones my in-laws brought with them (my sweet sister picked them up for me from Ikea and they delivered them when they came to visit).  Right now I'm using the striped reverse side.  When I'm ready for a change, I'll flip them back around to the front bright floral side.

I'm very happy with the look of my room right now.  It's calming, peaceful and just a little funky.

    I told Mel, over at Mel's design from the cabin that I would copy her comment on her blog so you can read. It reads:
    I've tried to make a comment on this blog, but blogger won't allow me....RATS!!
    Blooming in Alaska is a sweet blog...I wish I could tell her that Blogger! I've noticed that when the comment section doesn't give the option to list the blog name and web address, I can't leave a comment...this happens when I try to under the Google Account that it tells me to change email addresses...the problem is...I only have for my blogger account...hummm ...anybody else having this problem?

    I hope some of you can and tell her for me I like her post about pillows and the bench for her diniing room table....

  6. Thanks Mel. I left a comment on your blog!

  8. I just found your blog this morning at Savvy Southern Style. I am seriously loving the ruffled curtains in the dining room & kitchen! Funniest thing, I'm headed out today on the hunt for curtains, although I'm already not expecting to find what I'm wanting {think I'm ganna have to make them}. Would you mind sharing where you purchased these ... or did you make them? Also love your various pillows. I think I need to shop on Etsy more. Any recommendations you have, I'd gladly take =) Blessings.
