On my birthday Tim and I went to several furniture stores that sell "fine" used furniture. We found this loveseat in just the right colors for our home.
One of the things we had to consider is the scale of the furniture, how we live in our space and how many people we want to be able to sit on it. I was surprised at how large couches and love seats and chairs are these days! We needed something on a bit smallish scale.
This loveseat is perfect for our space and we like it very much.
It also is a dual reclining loveseat. So cool!
It works very well, and it holds quite a few people at a time.
We also got this chair from Ikea to replace a chair that we put out of its misery. We tend to use up our furniture - the previous chair, a recliner, we'd had for about 16 years.
Today my friend Amy came and spent the day with her children. Her son went with Tim and Kyle to a men's event for church. She brought me these delicious pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting! Oh my! Good thing they are small, so that eating two is like eating just one regular cupcake, right?
We went to breakfast, then loaded up our kids and went to run some errands, get pumpkins - you can see one in the background - and we also popped into some antique stores.
Look what I found!
Isn't it adorable? Did you know I have a thing for red plaid? Well, I do. Oh, yes. The coaster doubles as a lid to keep your drink hot and the best thing? It was 5 bucks. I had a cuppa in it tonight and it works quite well, thank you.
So are you tired of hearing about my birthday yet? Rest assured, my fabulous week is now over. I'll try not to bore you any more!
Church tomorrow, and wonderful fellowship await.
I must go now. I am guiding the kids through showers and prep for tomorrow - they pick out their clothes the night before.
We are hoping to watch another episode or two of Downton Abbey's 3rd season. Lindsay found it online, and we are enjoying it. No spoilers from me, so don't ask, but you could ask for the link....
