Deer Season. . .

And in the South---Deer Season is alive and thriving--why not a footstool to capture the spirit! Yes, I have designed a footstool that would be perfect for the cabin, a den, or even a modern urban apartment. The fabric was a real find--one I couldn't wait to use. The footstood is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy, AL and at

Another One . . .

Yes, I have another stool--or maybe a table. Personally, I see it as a table (sitting next to a wicker chair), but to each his own. Regardless, this is a white-washed, distressed table that has vintage postcards decoupaged on the top. The forget-me-nots on the postcards are lovely. Believing this would make "The Perfect" friend or "Secret Pal" gift, it is currently available at On The Square Antiques, Troy, AL and at

Catching up. . .

I'm always scouring thrift shops, estate sales, and even trash beside the road for "finds". I especially like to discover small stools and dresser benches. These transform easily into beautiful accent pieces.

This particular bench needed a small repair and then was ready to be "re-done" with new floral fabric, featuring a Blue Willow vase. The small skirt gives this bench an entirely different look.

Footstools are always a favorite--they are (usually) easy to transform. With the classic 50's legs, this footstool features a patchwork chenille fabric with moss green fringe.

The stool below is covered in a cranberry twig print fabric and surrounded by lush red and green fringe. It is available at On The Square Antiques, Troy, AL and at

A Treasure

Ordinary is an every day occurrence--only few things really stand out.

Several months ago I found an antique dresser. It was painted mustard yellow and had fabric (yes, fabric) glued to the front of the drawers! In spite of all these issues, I knew the piece would be a treasure--it just needed some help. After prying off the fabric and loads of paint scraping, the finished piece emerged. It is a favorite of mine!

Better Late Than Never

I've been neglegent with my writing but not my creating--visit me at to see my last 6 months of work. Hopefully, I will be more faithful with this blog and my attempt to keep you posted on my latest additions.

Lately, I finished two benches--both constructed from vintage beds. Each bench is different--always dependend on the character of the headboard and footboard used. The cream yellow-white bench features a craclked
weathered board in the front. The pillows and seat cushion have a warm cream background with rust colored
roses and sage green leaves. The bench is "at home" in a bedroom, porch, or family room--a great accent piece!
This bench is available at Old South Antique Mall, Dothan, AL and at .

Another bench just completed is a mahogany color with off-white duck canvas cushion and pillows
This bench is perfect for curling up with a good book This bench is available at On The Square Antiques in Troy, AL.

Let Me Introduce Myself

Located in southeastern Alabama, Miss Hettie's began 10 years ago as "Cloth Art", a flourishing craft show business specializing in one-of-a-kind women's jackets and dresses. The business has since transformed into Miss Hettie's, named after my mother, Hettie Flavia. Of course everyone from the South knows you NEVER address an adult female only by her given name but alway precede the given name by "Miss" --thus "Miss Hettie's" was born. Today Miss Hettie's specializes in reclaimed vintage furniture, hand selected vintage treasures and trinkets, and children's clothing constructed from vintage linens.

Shopping with Miss Hettie has never been easier. You may view her creations and treasures at:
or at "On The Square Antiques" in Troy, Alabama.
