You may remember that I have been going through somewhat of a dilemma regarding our sofas. They are old and beaten up to the point that all the stuffing has been coming out of the cushions and driving me crazy. I toyed with getting them re-upholstered, but that would have been rather pricey, and I am really not a fan of slip covers. I also thought about buying some lovely indian bedspreads to drape over them, but what with our dogs and the girls, I don't think that they would have been very practical. I started vaguely looking for used sofas in keeping with my compacting rules, but I haven't been very inspired. It all seemed rather exhausting until Robert's Dad decided to off load his old sofa and arm chairs. Guess who are to be the lucky recipients of these? They are really nice as well, leather, and in great shape considering that we will be the third owners! I just love that, and the fact that we have a new room makeover for nothing. Now I am wondering what to do with our old ones. I would love to donate them, but they really are in terrible shape, and I am not sure that even a charity would want them. I hate to think of them in a land fill though. Any ideas?
We are also now the very proud owners of this piano! Our kind neighbours are getting a new one, and were planning to sell it. Instead they decided to give it to us. The girls love going over to their house to play it, and are so excited to have it here now. We never imagined we would ever have a piano of our own. How very kind people are. Now we just need to learn how to play it!
