The Couch is GONE! The Couch is GONE!

by Kay~Kacey on 8/14/2005

It’s a happy day at my house! The couch I hate so much is gone, gone, gone. Yes, it left for college, never to be seen again. I’m sure the faded yucky lose pillow couches look trashy LOVELY at college…Honest 🙄

new couch I now have a new couch. Denim. (I’m a denim kinda of gal) It’s in our family room which I insist on being a real live in room. We eat snacks in there, the kids don’t get yelled about feet on the couch, and they can drink sodas, etc in there. The TV is in there. It’s a family friendly -family room. :mrgreen: See my new pretty couch. It’s like sitting on your old favorite pair of jeans, it is SO SOFT. Now I’ve already told them it’s getting a few girly floral throw pillows… all the males just rolled their eyes when I announced this. But as the only female in the house, I need a few girly things!

My grandmother made the wedding ring quilt hanging over the couch. And my dh bought me the old singer sewing machine table at the far end of the couch that I use as a table. I’m one happy camper. But wait!! There’s more!

We also got this big overstuffed chair. My new favorite place to read! Lots of light from the window. Comfortable as only a cozy overstuffed chair can be. An ott0man to prop my feet up. Notice the table to the left of the chair. It’s a clock! So cool. And yet another quilt from my mom’s family. Doesn’t this look like the perfect place to curl up with my laptop and write?? Now, I NEED to find a leather recliner that my dh wants so he’ll STAY OUT OF MY CHAIR!! :mrgreen:

OK, you are making me dislike my set, and it’s practically brand new. I LOVE yours!

Looks great. Isn’t life grand when it goes right?:bath:

Angela, thanks for stopping by. I DO love this furniture. I swear, it’s like an old favorite outfit you keep pulling out of your closet to wear again and again.

Mary, yes, life is RIGHT in my cozy overstuffed chair.!! :beer:

Tori August 14, 2005 at 12:05 pm

I love the new furniture, Kacey!!! And the quilts and the clock table! How cool!

Suzanne August 14, 2005 at 12:50 pm

LOVE IT, Kacey!!!!! It looks so comfy!! I love my chair and ottoman, too!

I’ve been stopping by for a while. I just hate to comment when I first visit, because so many people think it’s a hit-and-run 😉

I have a process. I click interesting looking links and if I’m “caught,” I bookmark. If I keep being “caught,” I put ya on my regular list of visits. And then, I read for a little while before commenting…

kacey August 14, 2005 at 2:08 pm

Angela, I like your process :mrgreen: If I find a blog I find interesting, I grab it with my RSS feed reader and go to it for a bit, if I keep going back, I comment after I get a feel for the blog.

Or sometimes I just jump right in and comment.

It looks wonderful! That chair is perfect for reading and laptop use…

I used to have one just like it – and yes, it became the husband’s favorite chair.:roll: Hurry up and buy that recliner and save yourself!

LauraP August 14, 2005 at 4:54 pm

Kacey – I love the new couch and that chair & ottoman – YES! Such a cozy, comfy room.

Michelle August 14, 2005 at 5:11 pm

Nice, cozy comfy couch!! :coffee2:

Gina August 14, 2005 at 8:04 pm

The couch looks great. Can’t go wrong with denim.

Jill August 14, 2005 at 8:51 pm

Love the denim!

Amy K August 14, 2005 at 9:40 pm

Looks like a great room! We have denim stuff in the basement playroom/TV room for the kids. Theirs seems a little small though. Yours looks much more comfy. I’m heading over, laptop in tow. 😀

Mary August 15, 2005 at 6:17 am

I love love love my overstuffed chair. I hate hate hate my yellow couches, but they’re only 3 years old, so I’m stuck with them for awhile.

Kelly August 15, 2005 at 7:35 am

Wow – that is one COMFY looking chair. I don’t think I’d ever get out of it. I’d have my meals served there, I’d sleep there, on hot days I’d have a hunky manservant fan me with a palm frond there… 😉

Katie August 15, 2005 at 7:50 am

Love the new furniture – and Love the idea of quilt hanging!!! Such a pretty look.

Sharon August 15, 2005 at 8:30 am

I love your chair. Definitely would be my favorite spot :love:

Kelly =) August 15, 2005 at 10:36 am

Ah, new couch, new comfy chair. You’re one lucky lady!! It is a great reading and writing chair!

Leslie August 15, 2005 at 1:23 pm

WOW! That’s a super combo you have! And I love the quilts hanging behind them! Tres chic, Kacey! Looks so comfy! So… when do we all get invited over? 😆

Melissa August 15, 2005 at 2:16 pm

I need one of those!!! I really don’t have a comfy, overstuffed chair. And winter is coming – with all those nice long winter nights…perfect for cozying up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa. An overstuffed chair is DEFINITELY in order! :book:

Danica August 15, 2005 at 6:32 pm

Looks like a great room!

Megan August 15, 2005 at 6:41 pm

Anything that’ll help you write is a good thing. Congrats on the couch, Kacey! And denim is the new black, or something, right?

StDebb August 15, 2005 at 8:23 pm

Tomorrow is bulk trash day here, and there are TWO, (count ’em) 2 couches waiting by the curb at my house!


kacey August 15, 2005 at 8:48 pm

Laura, Debbie thanks for stopping by. Debbie…TWO couches?? That’s better than getting rid of one!! :mrgreen:

Megan, yes, denim is the new black. I like that…

Leslie and Amy…you’re all invited over…if you all agree to help me clean the house…

I’ve had a long day. I should go sit in my comfy chair and drink…:beer:

Lory August 16, 2005 at 1:43 pm

I love the new set! Looks quite cozy!
(My dh wanted a leather recliner too–what we got looks like your chair and ottoman but it’s in leather. He had to have it but he still sits on the new couch instead I’ve taken over the chair. Great place to read when I’m not sliding off!!!)

I still don’t know what an RSS feed is though. I’ll get there.

Teresa August 16, 2005 at 4:53 pm

Very nice! I like!!

Cece August 16, 2005 at 7:09 pm
