Yesterday we went to most of the furniture stores in town. We separated immediately upon entering the stores! She was searching for leather and I for a "cottagey" slip covered sofa. The salespeople pointed us to our appropriate corners and we shouted out for each other if we found something interesting!
You can see her interests on her blog Skip to my Ewe. (click on name to go there~this Windows Live won't let me make my links another color!)
Here is what I've decided on.
I was Sooo sure I wanted a white slip covered sofa until I brought home the swatches and put them up against the walls and curtains in my living room. Too blah for me.
So red it is! And I think Tammy is choosing at least one piece of red leather. Must be our bashful personalities...not.
I didn't want to get into a red, white and blue color scheme, then I remembered this wingback chair I reupholstered that is in my hooking room now. I think it will bring the room together! Eclectic...Just how I like it.
Poor Mickey said it sounds like I've already made up my mind when I asked him if he wanted to go look at it. He just can't understand why I keep buying couches. The only reason I Hate the one we have now is that the back cushions aren't attached and the seat cushions scoot out every time you sit on it. It's a very soft cotton material, almost slick~pretty...but it makes me CRAZY!
Started radiation treatments this Monday. One week under my belt. Only six more weeks to go. It really goes quickly. I'm in and out in fifteen minutes. The only bad thing is that it's at 2:00 every afternoon. Right in the middle of the day.
Also been working like a dog in the garden. Trying to get everything planted before the side effects of the radiation catch up with me. They say it causes fatigue~as in you have to take a nap every day. YUK! I don't want to take naps.
I've got some livin' to do!
Have a great weekend.
