Will I Ever Learn? .............no.

Do you measure? I mean, when you decide to purchase something, move furniture, relocate pictures, transfer china... If you see a purse that's beautiful on eBay, do you notice it's a bag for Barbie? Have you ever planned to serve green peas in a Johnson Brothers Strawberry Faire bowl only to unwrap a butter plate? Well. I don't. I have often decided to measure, to grow up and fly right... But if you saw this pretty chair and ottoman at an awesome price for sale by a dear friend..
 
...wouldn't you think it might be the perfect cozy chair in your bedroom corner? It's a fabric I adore.Dark floral... I had two lovely rockers like this... It's that ottoman/cozy chair style I love. My
son and I once scored a set of two of these when he was a teen... Such happy times watching movie marathons, snoozing all weekend...
But... It's kind of like that joke, "Which is bigger? Mrs. Bigger? Or Mrs. Bigger's baby?" Of course, a mom is larger, right? Um, no. The baby is just a little Bigger.... Hahahahaha! That chair requires a re-do of my room, at the very least. My son manhandled it home, in, and to the spot I reserved. Nope. Not on a bet.
However, I will pull a Minnie Samantha... My gramma could find a way to stash a fold-out couch in a phone booth. I've seen her shuffle furniture and fit in yet another china cabinet, table, plate rack, recliner, or framed picture... I WILL find a way to fit this chair in my room! It looks amazingly comfy...
For now, just enjoy what's left of the beauty of fall. I took these pretty tree pictures at my son's
doctor's office. He had three visits one week apart to fight off a really persistent virus. Happy to report my son is much better! Love the show of color. Little. Great! Gorgeous! My sister/cousin tells me the leaves fell off yesterday! Sad face.







Enjoy your Halloween week!

*update.  It's 1:35 a.m., and I finally wiggled the big chair in... Not cleaned up yet. Wishing for a big dumpster. I can't get to the light, the bathroom, or the bed... Chair is comfy,..... but only ...with some pillows. I am suffering buyer's remorse...  Mom will hate it. I solemnly promise not to buy anything larger than my space again! I need a good fairy....

Those trees are awesome. I am laughing about the chair. Did you ever notice that when you buy something from a furniture store it looks NORMAL sized in there and you get it home and it has TRIPLED in size? lol I have NEVER had it go the other way-where it was SMALLER than I thought.

Well, I will be anxious to see how all your shuffling goes! xo Diana
