Genius Jodie Carleton Does it Again!

Genius Jodie Carleton of Ballarat, Australia has done it again! She is the creator of the selvage dress and the parasol (shown at right on this blog). Now she has made this upholstered chair! It's stunning, elegant, expertly crafted, charming, makes-me-want-to-do-my-happy-dance and kiss somebody! Oh Jodie, you are the best!
