    I love the photo of the old chair with a rush seat. Do You know where I can get a new seat put in an antique chair???

    Thank you for these pretty pictures. I will stop by the next time I’m in Cashiers…

  2. Stunning!! I have a very similar piece to the one in picture #4, slightly worrying. I must have that mirror. Naturally, Dovecote Decor has a natural affinity to Dovetail. Spread the word. We have a huge $500.00 giveaway on HGTV Freebie Friday this week. Lets talk soon, I’m CBJ’s friend.
    Best,
    Liz
