Hello everybody- happy Friday!
I'm tooting my own horn to say that I am now the big….
60 60 60 60 60 60 60 60 60 60
Heading downstate to be with my Mom & Sisters.
So thankful to have them all to celebrate with!
Ok, ok, ok so…..
For some time now I've been wanting a new chair to replace my red coral print chair. Dan was looking for something special for me for my birthday and suggested we go look for a new chair.
The arms have become a bit tattered and I was just tired of the coral print. Our daughter will be the recipient of the chair so it's going to a good home. We started looking in February and I finally zeroed in on what I wanted. To my surprise it came in a week ago (only 4 weeks) so I was very happy about that!
So here she is in a more neutralized color and an ottoman to go with it! She swivels and rocks like my old one.
She's made by Norwalk in Norwalk, Ohio and her style name is Sophie!
Her companion ottoman is called Addison!
I've been slowly working to give the room a little more modern look yet still keeping a classic traditional style going. The fabric has a creamy white background with a golden/brown stitched design on it. It will be super easy to mix this with various trends that I may go through.
After a couple of days went by I made my mind up to try a garden stool for a small accent table. I didn't want to get anything too large so it wouldn't take up a lot of space. I searched a bunch on the internet but ended up at my local Pier 1 store that had just the right look- and it was on sale!
As it turns out the top of the garden stool isn't real level and when I would put a drink on there it tended to lean towards the center which made me nervous. I toyed with various thoughts on how to make it work better and then I remembered this wood charger that I had. Fortunately it's nearly the same size and goes quite well with it. I added a few rubber feet under it to keep it from sliding.
The new pillows I picked up recently and showed in a previous post fit on the chair nicely too.
So that's my new chair and ottoman birthday gift!
This is however my fantasy dream/wish...
This is what I really really really want but I can't fit it in the living room! Ha, ha! Truthfully though this has been a dream I've had for a long long time….perhaps by 65??
Remember the 1970's catch phrase "you're not getting older, you're getting better"!
I'm going with that one!
I'm looking forward to a great weekend and wish you all the same!
