Sectioned Out

One of the things we'd like to do in our house is get rid of our GINORMOUS oversized furniture in the living room.  Although it's a super comfy set, it's just taking up WAY too much space for the amount of seating it offers.  Plus my feet don't touch the ground when I sit on it -- which isn't really comfy. :)

  If anyone has craigslist selling tips for us -- do tell!!

 Over the past weekend we decided to go furniture shopping.  Normally we do the same old Hom Furniture, Ashley Furniture walk-through (which we did this time too).  But everything looked the same and so BLAH!  Then we stopped in at Schniederman's Furniture, a Minnesota family owned furniture store with 5 stores in our area.  I've found the furniture store I'll shop at for the rest of my life!  They have gorgeous pieces!  Anyhow, we had gone to look for furniture for a different spot in the house and came across this (except we'd like some green pillows to have with it):

It looks even better in person -- but OH MY!  I LOVE this!  And it's comfortable too!  Could a couch be any better than that?  And we found a bright fun chair to go with our new found love:

Lane Furniture Julia High Leg Recliner

The one we like comes in a slightly different pattern (Kevin even picked out a floral pattern!), but it's the same chair.....which is also a recliner!  These pieces actually allow the same (maybe even more) seating in our living room and they're much smaller so I can put other furniture pieces in the room too!  WIN-WIN!

What do you think?  Personally, I'm a fan of white couches -- but let's just say in our house it would not be a wise decision.  :)

Getting my mojo back....

If you noticed that I've been on hiatus from blogging for the past weeks (that turned into months).....then let me tell you I'm on my way back! :) 

I'm sure you all know how sometimes life just takes a little twist and we have give up some of the things that we love doing to take care of the tasks, work and chores that really matter.   The last few months have been very busy, but we've recently gotten back into a few little projects that I'll be sharing over the next few weeks.   It's sure nice to be back to improving our home -- and I'm SO excited to keep blogging about it! :)  What fun!

And thanks to Pinterest I've been coming up with lots of great ideas on decor and projects too -- LOVE that site!  It's like blog-hopping on speed! (click here to join me there).

I'm so grateful for all my fantastic followers and subscribers that have stuck around while I get back into the swing of things -- I've enjoyed reading all your comments and catching up on your blogs too! :)
