New Chairs and Winning...
Mr. C and I are "do-overs". We have each been married before to others and now we are married to one another. Why am I telling you this? Well...you might know how it works to combine lives and other stuff. For many years I have graciously shared Mr. C's former kitchen table and chairs in our home together. Some say it is "bad karma" and would never use anything from the former wife. I say being frugal and responsible is better for a marriage. Now with all that being said, here are the four chairs awaiting the donation truck for pick up. I admit I am not sad...at all! These chairs and I have never gotten along well but we certainly have tried.
A couple of weeks ago Mr. C in a weak and rare moment said we could get new chairs. Now he has said this a few times in the past however it always meant driving and searching furniture stores and agreeing on a style and budget. That never worked for us. I showed him a few styles online and he offered if I liked a chair we would buy it. WAIT a minute! Who is this person ready to buy online without seeing and sitting and qualifying this chair??? He says, "Do you want these chairs?" with his finger ready to click "buy". I say, "yes...BUT...what if you don't like them or they aren't comfortable or the quality isn't what you like" and on and on I went. "Do you want these chairs?" "YES!!!"
Well...here they are and without boring you even more we are both very happy with them and they are very comfortable. Now the old table looks rather bleak to us. Oh No! That table is just fine!!! Thank you Mr. C very much for our new chairs. Good-Bye Bad Karma!
During this waiting period of a few days for old chair removal and new chair delivery I WON these beautiful hand quilted placemats and table topper from Connie at Freemotion by the River. I have followed her blog for a long time and I always adore what she creates. Her quilting skills and ability to put fabrics together are amazing. If you don't already follow Connie you will want to click the link and see what she is up to. Last year she and her husband rescued a Pelican and the stories were wonderful to read. Pelly is doing wonderfully well.
Thank you sew very much Connie for sharing your beautiful creations with me. As you can see they look so gorgeous on the table...with the new chairs. I am truly grateful.
This Wednesday we actually had a drizzle of rain. It wasn't enough to measure on the official rain gauges but it was enough to freshen our plants and to help the fire fighters have a slight break from the triple digit heat and horrific out-of-control fires burning so many places here on the West Coast. Thank you all for your continued prayers for rain and no more fires.
Falling into Autumn here with leaves turning and acorns dropping. The grey squirrels are beginning their foraging for stocking up their winter supplies. One little guy came right up on the upstairs deck begging for a handout. I think he found an old Dorito chip under the patio furniture.
Loving all the gorgeous Fall Décor and creative ideas you are sharing here on blogland. Creative Bliss and enJOY all that Fall has to offer...
