New Chair {Tuesday Morning} vs. New Jewelry

OK…call me crazy!!!

I went to HomeGoods last week to look for a new lamp for the sunroom.

There is a new Tuesday Morning next to HomeGoods now…I popped in to take a peek!

There it was…a chair that I have been looking for…

…..well not quite the chair…but one that would do…especially at that price.

I have been really wanting a chair from Hickory Chair, but a bit pricey for me now…

…..especially when I am saving for my France trip!!

So I pick up my phone and call the hubby…

Honey….there is this chair that I found….

…..conversation goes on….

……….well, he says, I was planning on spending about the same amount for a piece of jewelry for you…

………………..for Valentine’s Day…so you choose…what?..no brainer!!!….the chair!

And, he knows me all to well…he knew what my answer would be before he asked me!

So that night I take him to see the chair…to see what he is buying me for Valentine’s Day!

I discovered a few little “blips” on the chair and found another the next day…

I shopped the house and placed this pillow on the chair…

…..for now the colors are good…I am really looking for a pair of pillows to tie the two chairs together…

……….since they are not a “matching pair”…

I have finally put away all the Christmas decs … yes, I know…

…..and taken down the “winter mantel” and refreshed it with a cleaner look.

Thanks so much for visiting and I enjoyed sharing my “Valentine’s gift” with you…

…..come back and see the other changes that happened in this room.

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!!

  1. Now you KNOW we have passed pitiful when we prefer chairs over jewels!!!!!!!!!! :-) I’m with you, though! Great chair, and you’ll get years of enjoyment out of it on a daily basis.

  2. Love the chair, I would choose that over jewelry too. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  3. I love it. Love the stripes. That is different from the one I saw at TM. I would take the chair over jewelry, too.

  4. It’s a beautiful chair, Shirley! I would have chosen the chair over the jewelry, too. I find I wear less jewelry as the years go on {and I’m not working}, so the chair would make a much better gift.

    Very pretty chair. You know that “matching” is passe. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    A new Tuesday Morning next to Home Goods! Geez, that’s as good as it gets. The chair is beautiful, and I would choose the same. Love it.

  8. Now that is a wonderful chair! Blips and all! I haven’t had terrific luck at Tuesday morning in recent years. Its been more “miss” than “hit” for me, here in California. You scored! Besides, how much jewelry can you really wear?

    Happy Valentines day!

  9. Given the same choice I would have done the same thing! Chair is gorgeous! Kudos to your Hubby! ;)

  10. Gorgeous chair! I would have made the same choice, lol. My husband loves it when I take the pressure off of him finding gifts for me … :-)

  12. It was absolutely a no-brainer. Chair wins! Its a beauty. I know you will find the perfect pillows, too. When are you going to France? Are you going with Kim on that shopping trip? Me and Bill are going in September, and I was telling Kim that it would be so funny/fun to meet up there at one of the markets. :)

  13. I love the chair!!! I love the wood trim. I am debating though which I would have chosen since I still want earrings:):) BUT, the chair would be SO much more practical. I got my rings sized for Valentine’s. When I found out how much it cost I told Joe that was my V’s gift:) XO, Pinky

  14. I vote for the chair too. It’s a great find and as you said, not too pricey. Happy Valentine’s Day.

    I LOVE the chair! I think it’s absolutely perfect! I am always on the look out for perfect little pillows. I think you hit a home run with this one. I love jewelry and furnishings but I think in this case the chair is the perfect gift.

  16. Bobbie Honeycutt says:

    Love the chair! I would take furniture or anything else for my home over jewelry any day! I love jewelry but I love my home more!

  17. That’s a really nice looking chair! It looks perfect next to the accent table. Love your decorating!
    I like the pillow you put on it. I bet a red pillow on it would be all you need to tie it into the other chair.
    I like the styling of both of them! I would have chosen the chair over jewelery too! Far more functional!
    I miss our Tuesday Morning. They left a few years ago.

  18. oh you lucky girl!! how sweet of the hubs… enjoy!!

  20. Shirley~ I’d take the chair over jewelry any day! I don’t have much luck at Tuesday Morning but it’s always fun to find an unexpected jewel! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  26. LOL… I would have gone for the chair too! That’s a gorgeous chair… so definitely a good choice! I need to get moving and put away my winter decor… but then again, it is technically still winter, right? :P

  29. My mom was just at my house this past weekend, and she told me about that Tuesday Morning opening. I cannot wait to go there. What genius thought to put a Tuesday Morning, Home Goods & Kirkland’s all that close together…it had to be a woman!!! Your new chair is gorgeous, especially with the cane back and I love the pillow, too. It’s very spring-like.

  30. Love the chair. I wish my Tuesday Morning has such good stuff.

  31. No question – the gorgeous chair!! The neutral looks perfect in your room, you’ll have so much fun playing with pillows for it! :)

  32. I just like the valuable information you supply in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.
    I’m relatively sure I’ll be told many new stuff right right here!
    Good luck for the next!
