Show and Tell Friday

Kelli of There Is No Place Like Home hosts Show and Tell Friday. Today I want to show you my new sofa.

A month or so ago I asked the people who contribute to this meme to help me decide if I should buy a new sofa or get my old one reupholstered. They agreed that I should buy a new one.

Well here it is:

Isn't it beautiful?

Here's my old sofa which now sits outside my house waiting for the sanitation guys to pick it up.

In the next couple of weeks Lazy Boy should call and tell me they are delivering my (or rather my husband's) new recliner. Can't wait!

I like it that you kept the styles and color so similar - you know what you like and stick with it. Jen

We all deserve new stuff. Glad you "indulged" yourself. Looks comfy!

I envision lots of curling up on that new couch with a sof t blanket, a mug of hot hazelnut coffee and maybe a good book or some needlework!


I got bounced today, somehow I didn't quite fit into the guidelines. That's okay, my post stands as is.

I like your new sofa. It's a classic. I didn't participate this week in S&T, but I'm just commenting on others' posts. Have a great weekend. Kathi

Mary,
You and I have the same book rack. That one next to your sofa (RIP) is the very same as the one in my daughter's room....

God bless!
