.............So, I have been buying living room furniture a piece at a time. First came a table, next a sofa, next came the loveseat and yesterday I hauled the fourth piece home - the chair. Getting the chair in place and dragging the old one to the curb has given the room a look of unity. By myself, I got it out of my Tucson, and into the house. I thought for awhile it was going to have to sleep in the garage last night but I finally managed to get it in.
You would think that four legs equipped with threaded bolts would be very simple to attach! I got them screwed in pretty easy but they have three flat sides and one curved side and it took me forever to figure out which way they were supposed to be turned!! I am waiting for someone stronger than me to put the screws in each one. So, if you stop by, don't sit on the chair!
I'm glad it looks right at home with the rest of its family.
The sofa and love seat both came with four loose pillows. I'm not using all of them - it was too much! But, a couple of striped ones makes the striped chair look like it belongs.
You wouldn't believe how many pictures I have taken of the red pieces and nearly all of them made the red look orange. This dark picture has the red about right.
This one makes the walls more like they are but there is that orange (I hate) glow on the sofa again!
I have never thought to take a picture in this direction before. There is more walking space at the side of the loveseat than this picture looks. The opening is the entrance to the kitchen and most of the white you see is the door to the garage.
After seeing this train station clock looking so miniscule in the last picture, I decided to show a close-up of it.
Another thing that came into the room yesterday is this wool pumpkin. I am almost as excited to have it as the chair! It is a boy pumpkin. Well maybe it would be better said, it has a masculine look.
I was in Winter Park yesterday with some friends and we went into Coldwater Creek where just a few minutes before, they had started a good sale - the only way I ever buy anything from Coldwater. The pumpkin was $10 to start with, which was amazing to me. In that store I would have expected much higher. It was marked down to half off plus they were having a 30% off sale too. So they practically gave me the pumpkin. Did I tell you I love it!!!
This little bird was a little more than the pumpkin because it was only 30% off. I didn't see any clothes that I wanted to walk out with.
Now, to show you my latest big tag. I made one similar to this to give to a friend and decided to make this one to keep.
I really like making tags.
That is an old clip earring and it's "jewels" are a pretty amethyst color.
Excuse me while I go sit and enjoy my new things!
