Last Saturday, my daughter, Kelly, took me shopping for a new sofa. When I moved out of my former home....I gave away my old one....I'd only had it for 29 years, so thought it could go. I made a pact with myself that I wouldn't buy a new one until that house sold. Well, who knew it would take nearly two years to sell that house? So...keeping the deal I made with myself, I did not buy a sofa until now....well, the house sold in March, but it took me this long to make up my mind to go in search of my perfect sofa. Kelly, who was much more patient with me that I would have thought....drove me around until we came across the sofa you see her
sitting on clowning around on in this photo.
Here it is in the store. It is NOT beige. It is a really nice soft "barely" green. My favorite color. And, I wanted to have back cushions that are removable....something that proved hard to find, but this one had them. And, it's about 85 inches long. At five feet tall, I could take a nap on it with room to spare.
I'm not a napper, but, hey....just in case!
So, here it sits in my living room. Yes, it needs an area rug...but that's an expense for another day.
And, yes, as I have often told you....I am, in fact, a hoarder, as is obvious, and I doubt I change anytime soon. I love piddling around with all my stuff.
And, this is only part of the living room. I didn't show you more because you might not be able to handle seeing the whole thing at once.....all that hoarding and such. But, if you'd like....I could certainly take a few more photos....more chairs, a dining table, tv area, and where I quilt, well, as they say....'the rest of the story.' Let me know if you'd like to see. Of course, I'll probably show it anyway, but it would be nice to know someone actually WANTS to see.
I LOVE the sofa....and I think it was worth the wait. I'd love to have another twenty-nine years worth of sofa enjoyment....but, at seventy-one...well, maybe I'll just enjoy it one day at a time.
