The first Saturday of the year and the weather forced me to stay inside all day! I woke to a coating of ice this morning and didn’t realize it until the dog slid down the back deck stairs. I laughed out loud at her and she looked at me with a bit of contempt. I’m not complaining to be stuck inside–I love a little forced home time. I took down all the Christmas decorations and lugged the tree out all by myself. (Thankfully without scratching the walls and with minimal needle mess.)
We got a new couch right before Christmas. I am so enjoying it. It’s big, comfortable, and a neutral colored microfiber so I can change out the pillows when I want. It didn’t look quite so big in the store–kind of made the end tables look like children’s furniture when we got it home.
I moved this antique phone table out to replace one of the end tables. I was surprised how perfect it fit. It even houses books! Two very good ones pictured–The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Last Minute Patchwork.
Happy New Year!
The couch looks great! Can’t wait to see it in person sometime. We’ll have to chat about that visit – I think we said February, right? Over your birthday maybe?
