It's awesome, right?
News: We have a new piece of furniture (!!!!)
This is very exciting! I inherited the vast majority of our furniture--and it is beautiful. All antiques, every single piece in my house has a story from my parents, my grandparents, and my great grandparents. I am very lucky to have a nice old house that works well with nice old furniture. I love it...but, I have to admit, it is quite fun to actually pick out and purchase a piece of furniture. We had a room (in our quite small house) that only had one chair in it. It was ridiculous, only one person could sit in the entire room! Silly.
So I needed to find a teeny, tiny couch of sorts, so that we could have a conversation in the room. (and at least sit more than one person ;) Behold the powers of craigslist--here is our brand new hand carved settee (complete with gold strands in the fabric because I love loud and gaudy, always)
