After what turned out to be a picture perfect holiday weekend, you'd think I'd have more exciting photos than a picture of my couch.
I believe I was so busy enjoying the moments that I never once picked up the camera. I must say I loved having the 4th fall on a Friday. How great to be able to carry the festive summery feeling right into the weekend. The other thing I loved was the absence of humidity we enjoyed throughout the weekend. I think that's almost unheard of for a summer day in the south. Let me just say that, at least for me, it was a blessed relief and reason enough to celebrate.
So we enjoyed time on the lake, in the lake, grilling, watching the fireworks, in the pool and a few walks were thrown in there too.
Now, about that couch.
After 15 years our family room love seats were showing their age.
Not to mention they were always way too short for my 6' husband and sons to sprawl out on comfortably.
Not too long ago Brett and I had some time to kill while waiting for the car to be serviced. Spotting a new-to-me consignment shop I asked him to drop me off. With no intentions of purchasing anything, I happened to spot this couch. The colors were my home decor colors in a nutshell. Not necessarily colors I see in the furniture stores today. Since I don't want to re-decorate the whole room, I was keeping my fingers crossed that they would fit in with what I had. A bit risky as they couldn't be returned.
We had to remove one end table to accommodate the new length. Other than that, a perfect fit.
Not only for the room, but for those 6' tall men too.
Speaking of perfect fits, I'm playing around with photo sizes here today. I usually choose the extra large size. Today I'm trying large instead. If you have any thoughts on the whole matter, please feel free to share them.
