A Couch + A Chair= LOVE

Couch + Chair= A Love Story

It’s hard to believe, but it feels like my Tiny Little House is starting to actually come around.  I no longer wander from room to room, box to box in a daze.  There are actually entire areas that are livable and more importantly, actually photographable for the blog!!! LOL

First and foremost I have my new couch!  I got it on Craigslist at a fraction of the cost.

On a side note, I meet some of the most fascinating and wonderful people through Craigslist.  The adorable young couple I bought it from lived in a seaside condo and were both air traffic controllers and pilots.  They loved the couch, but the wife confided that she had always wanted a white couch.  She feel in love with my couch when she saw it at z Gallerie, bought it and immediately regretted it because..she wanted a white couch for goodness sakes.  My reply to her was, you’re young, you don’t have kids, dogs, etc.  Get a white couch NOW before it’s too late!

Somewhat inspired by her, I bought a white shag carpet to go under my new couch.  Since the Corgis are officially ‘outside’ dogs, I think this rug might last more than six months.

And finally…drum roll please!!!…..

Pièce de résistance

…my knock off Eames chair, (click here and here for the before sad pic), which will now officially be referred to as my Eames chair…so sue me Eames Company!  Re-upholstered in a vintage, butter yellow, herringbone fabric, I love it so.  I love it so, I would marry it if I could.  However, I am paranoid about stains, so it’s gotten a shot of Scotch-guard every day for good measure.  The LOML is pretty much banned from ever sitting here.  <3

Believe it or not my daughter actually won this monster at one of the claw arcade games. Proof that it can be done!

A wide shot. My Nike’s match, so they stayed in the pic.

Vignettes are my thing. Squirrel, vintage prom pic, vintage rock posters and a piece of the Getty Museum.

What lurks behind. I’m sitting at the computer in the dining room/junk/sorting area. It’s not pretty.
