Parasol and Paper Swap!

I received my swap package from Kerryanne English today. Make sure and check out her blog! The swap hostess is Shannon at Paint Mine Pink!

What a treat!! She sent me a copy of her book Shabby Doodles, music paper that she painted roses on, and beautiful tag with a parasol painted on it, purple blank notecards, chocolate, A gorgeous hand painted hanging of a girl holding a parasol, and some gorgeous faux cupcakes.



Here's a closeup of one of the cupcakes....yummy! Kerryanne is definitely talented!



Thank you so much Kerryanne!! I hope you get my package soon and I hope you love it as much as I love yours!!

I am trying to pick a fabric to recover the stool I got at the garage sale. Please help me! Which option do you like best??

Option 1 - This fabric is quite stiff, so I don't know how easy it would be to work with.



Option 2 - This fabric has a light green background. I hope you can see it in the pic.



Option 3 - This fabric is gorgeous...but I was just wondering if it was "too white" when you compare the color of the legs.



Since I don't know how to do a poll, please leave a comment and tell me which one you like best. Remember you can click on the pictures to make them bigger.

Thanks!!

my vote is for option 2 it looks aged enough to fit the finish of the stool.
I like the scale of the pattern as well. its a nice size and seems to fit the style of the stool.

I like 2 as well, but the 1st seems to go best with the legs -- at least in the photos.

My favorite is option 3. I think the beige in the rose leaves goes well with the stools antique white color. Option 2 is my second choice.

My first choice is #1, but I like #2 also. I do think #3's background is too pale. All the fabric is great though.
