Somethings New

The past week has just flown by so quickly. A week ago today I was getting the house in order, at least as orderly as I get it, for sister Jody's arrival. It is always such a HUGE treat to have my family come visit. While in the cleaning mode with all it's style and sweat, Kathy called and reminded me that one of our favorite stores was still having their clearance sale. I'd gotten the email notice but it ended there for me. After telling myself I couldn't, wouldn't interrupt my chores I actually did just that.
THANK YOU KATHY. . . AGAIN.

It's not enough to show you the new sofa and love seat . . . two new lamps . . .

Close up of the upholstery fabric . . .

Same view maybe better lighting . . .
Recent $5 purchase - the Cuba travel poster - from Deseret Industries (DI) that's been in the family room a couple of weeks . . . the FUN fabric - Jody's inspiration to recover the chair pad . . . rearranged lamp on table and leather covered clock from an upstairs bedroom . . .

The fabric is in the "tucked in stage" which for me can mean YEARS . . . but it won't be. Plus, I may choose a lighter zebra background print . . .

View from the kitchen . . .
Have you seen enough???

I'm just ticked pink . . . or rather tickled gold chenille.
I sincerely hope this does not come off boastful!!! After so many, many years with ratty furniture this is just such a big deal. And the out of state family wanted pictures. And though I know it is not in good taste to talk price, and I usually do anyway with the family, the sofa and love seat cost less than $390.00 total. Just downright giddy.

It looks like a whole new room. Gosh, you are really going to town now. It's amazing what a little paint can get you doing isn't it? But you're making so many changes, I'm not sure if you will still be in the same house when we come back!!!
Love ya, Skippie
