Can You Love a Chair?...
Um, can you love a chair? If that's possible, I think I'm in love.... After stalking the Josette chair at Pier 1 for about 4 months now I finally took the plunge and handed over my credit card. At $199 a chair this was really steep for me. Like a lot of SAHM bloggers I usually do a lot of our home shopping at the Goodwill, Target, Craigslist, etc. but after searching for months for something similar on craigslist and in thriftstores I knew that I just needed to splurge on something. An added bonus is that my husband Jerry really liked the floral print as well and that's saying a lot! Like most men he doesn't have too much of an opinion on home furnishings, I'm lucky if I get an "oh that's okay" cuz usually it's just a grunt! Anyway let me stop gushing over this chair but seriously I am in love... The only con to the chair is that it's a bit short, I heard one shopper say it looks like a children's chair but they are wide and comfy and did I mention beautiful! I think my little guy actually loves them too:)
Welcome to my home decor blog! I have an appreciation of all styles of home decor but Hollywood Regency and French Provincial are my personal favorites although shabby chic and cottage style make more sense for my lifestyle.. This blog will be about some of my favorite rooms, low cost options for furniture and decor, my own DIY projects and just anything related to home decor and furniture.
