The couch to the left I bought from a friend this spring. It's a Mitchell Gold sofa slipcovered in a linen looking tan fabric. Solid frame, and super duper comfy!! In fact, my family is a little irked with me for replacing it with a more modern looking and sooo NOT comfortable couch. Oh well, form over function I say.
Email or contact me if you're interested in this one.
It comes with four brand new cushions to replace the originals if they ever sag. The discoloration in the pic. is not at all obvious in person. $300 to the first Chump that wants it. You can order a new slipcover from Mitchell Gold if you want a different fabric. They still carry this frame.
Anyway...I know this isn't Craig's list. Blogging forward now.... :)
I promised you pics of my backyard sometime this summer and I don't know what I was thinking when I did that because it was not a banner year for my landscaping and grass, what with all the heat and lack of rain. However, the beginning of August presented me an opportunity to spruce things up back there because it was my turn to host Team Centrennial's Wine and Cheese night.
Ten of my fabers (friends/neighbors) have been meeting once a month to learn more about various wines and different types of cheese to pair with them. No, it's not an excuse to drink and gossip...we really mean business and have been learning a lot! Of course it does help that we have a neighborhood professional caterer/chef that is part of our group (no pressure there) and she shares lots of interesting tips and facts.
Sidenote...(Ken just walked into the room and asked what the 'blog' topic of choice was today....I told him "backyard wine party". His response, "Oh, oh, will there be tears or cheers"? I think that's his kind way of saying that I've been a little too sappy lately...sorry about that, Chumps)!
Here's some pics of the occasion:
I was not about to pack everything and drag it inside. I hadn't spent any time cleaning or preparing the interior of my house that day. This isn't happening!!!....
Faber once again to the rescue. I borrowed her canopy and the show would go on!
The chicken crate coffee table that we retrofitted with wheels is also at Not So Shabby! I only have one so get it while the gettin's good!
