Reupholstering an Antique Chair

In the last couple of months I have been a stranger to blogging. I have retreated in to my own private world.

During my absence I have begun to fix our home with do it yourself projects.

My latest creation was completed recently. I reupholstered an American antique chair from the early 1900s. I repurposed hand woven ikat fabricate from the Philippines.

I then made an ottoman/step stool to match my newly created “masterpiece”.

In the next post I will show how my husband and I transformed one of our home’s vintage 1950’s bathroom to a cool and modern space.

A neat and uncluttered home makes our family happy! Till next time…

Ebates…A Way to Make Money While Doing Your Holiday Shopping

Thanksgiving just came and left.  There were so many things to be grateful for, especially my wonderful family. 

Even my sister from San Diego (www.sandwichemporium.com) and my cousin from the Philippines were able to celebrate the festivities with us.

During the visit my cousin told me about a wonderful site called Ebates.com.  It is a shopping portal that gives you cash back for shopping at major retailers like Toys R Us, Macys, Dell Computer, Target to name a few.

Since this is now the gift giving season of Christmas and Hanukkah, discovering this site was such a blessing.  I am planning to buy gifts for those I love, so why not make and save a few extra bucks while buying the items I was already going to purchase?

So far I have made $41 cash back from items that I bought in the last couple of days.

 There are still a few people on my Christmas list so I know I will be going back to Ebates again!

Soon there will be presents under our Christmas tree from Santa Claus and the family!

Happy Holidays!

(Note: Ebates did not ask me to mention them in my blog.  I added them on because I think it’s great to get cash back!)
