Hello Dear Readers!
I hope you all had a most wonderful Labor Day Holiday weekend.
I know it is time to kick off the beautiful season of Fall;
however, it is still pretty warm here in the beautiful state of North Carolina.
Well, at least where I am.
I had a jam packed long weekend and today I want to tell you about
my new sofa decision, Chinoiserie jar and more!
I love this grouping shown above.
I took this image from the showroom at Furnitureland South in High Point, NC.
While browsing the many, many showrooms with my hubby the past weekend,
he saw that pillow (in the chair above) by Barclay Butera and he said, “I love that fabric design!”
The Sales Rep and I both looked at each other and smiled. We were off to a great start!
But we were on a mission . . . to find a sofa for the new house, as there was a great sale going on.
I sold my previous sofa with the table and ottomans to the new owners of my previous home.
Did you also notice the large Chinoiserie jar on the table in the first image?
The one that compliments that fabric so well? It came home with me. . . and here’s the story.
I narrowed down my choices to two sofas. One of them was my hubby’s favorite;
however, he kept saying that I should go with the one that “I” loved.
I was having a hard time choosing and time was running out as the sale was ending the next day.
My hubby had a tournament this past weekend and it was sort of local . . . just an hour away.
Our friends came to stay with us over the weekend as they are also a part of the team.
Well at least her hubby is . . . and we ladies are the fans.
Friday was the first day of the tournament; however, I had to finalize my decision
and go to one store Thursday night and the other on Friday (skipping one day of the tournament)
Merry (my friend and guest for the weekend) tagged along.
When strolling through my favorite showrooms, I showed Merry the fabric in the Barclay Butera
showroom that my hubby loved. While strolling through another showroom, she spotted
a large Chinoiserie jar that reminded her of the fabric. (I was determined to buy a
Chinoiserie jar that day to take advantage of the sale.)
Then we saw another one just like it near the Barclay Butera showroom.
So I grabbed the pillow, pulled a chair next to the chest and we both agreed it
was a great piece to compliment the pillow/fabric, in which I will be ordering to make pillows
and possibly cover a chair. I ordered the furniture and was able to take the jar (by Sarreid) home.
I called my hubby to let him know that we were on our way home with a beautiful birthday gift
for him in tow. I told him that he would just love it! 🙂
So happy that he has a sense of humor!
Now before I show you which sofa I chose, I want to show you what a friend of mine found
in a cute shop in St. Simons Island, GA …. I have seen this particular brand of
soap/lotion and candle products in many places,
however, this particular scent and name was perfect for the Berry Patch house.
I was looking at the many beautiful labels and scents of those products
and never bothered to see what the “berry design” said, until my friend JoAnn pointed out
that I need to get all of these items as it was the “Berry Patch” collection.
So I bought every item in the Berry Patch collection for the guest bathroom . . . Perfect!
Now on to my sofa selection for the new house. . . . and oh by the way, I also ordered
two chairs and I will share those later.
When my hubby and I walked into the Sherrill furniture showroom,
the back of the sofa caught our eyes.
My hubby loved it and me too! We were looking for a sofa that had a pretty back
as the back of the sofa will be exposed and most likely be seen when you enter the room.
The pleated button design is also on the sides of the sofa.
The sofa shown is a pretty blush color….I chose another color.
It will take at least 12 weeks to have the sofas made, but worth the wait.
Yes, sofas as in two of them . . . I always wanted to have two sofas face each other.
And here is a glimpse into the end of the weekend with my hubby’s team winning the
SPA National Championship, but rather than show you a photo of the team, here are our fans!
Many times we have three generations and sometimes four . . .
of fans cheering on their favorite player and team! A most wonderful group!
The boys holding the banner are the grandsons of our pitcher…truly a family affair!
So what do you think about my sofa selection? It is so very hard for me to select a sofa
in which my feet hit the floor!
Have a most beautiful day and remember to come back on Friday
for another great Floral Friday with my friends Lidy, (French Garden House)
