COTTAGE KITCHEN

In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

SHOPPING FOR THE COTTAGE

We went looking on Friday evening for a chair to go with the sofa. We are still trying to decide but I thought this one looked good. You can see a sofa similar to ours in the right corner of this picture. I think they would go well together. I took off my shoes and curled up in it to see if it was comfortable, the kind where you can read a good book. It is extra large but not a chair and a half. It would fit my hubby well as long as we get the ottoman, which we plan on doing. It was warm and inviting..just the way I like it...cozy and comfortable and big enough to add a grandchild next to you. My grandchildren love for you to read to them, even Hunter, although his attention span is about 3 minutes, he loves to open and close books.
Here is the sofa we chose. I think it will work well in our space. It is neutral enough that if I change the pillows and add a throw, I think, it will change the look to keep it casual. I like it when people come over and feel like they are able to sit on your furniture . I want my rooms to be inviting and comfortable where people like to sit and stay awhile. We chose several others but ended up coming back to this one thinking it was the most versatile for the space. When we finally made the choice the price had dropped 100 dollars so we also got a bargain. I just love a bargain...don't you?
After all of that we went to the Buffet for dinner. We don't do this often but I happen to have a coupon and it ended up being a very good night. There was Salmon, Steak, Ham, Turkey then on the other sidebar there was pot roast, teriaki chicken( not sure how to spell that) pork chops, shrimp scampi any ways it was really good. We left stuffed and happy to go home to think about what chair we should choose. I am sure we will take our time and look at a lot more but I will compare them all to this one...it was comfortable and it is a Lazyboy so it should last awhile.
Have a great weekend!!

I love the chair. It looks very comfy; in fact you'd better get two, because you and hubby may compete for that one! Yes, I believe it will go very well with your sofa and make a warm, welcoming setting for friends and fam. Pillows and throws always help things come together. When we bought new furniture last, I bought for comfort. I don't really like what I got now, but its functional and has no loose back cushions. But we manage to decorate around it and almost every seat reclines. Yours looks great!
I really love a buffet sometimes; sounds like you hit a good one.

I love the sofa and chair both. They both look comfy and should be very durable. How great that you got a good deal on the sofa! That makes you even happier. Today in GA would be a good day to curl up with a good book. Rainy and cool and I found some good books cheap at Goodwill! I'm off to read. You enjoy your day and thanks for sharing the photos.

Well, when you play the grandchild card ( needing a place for two to sit because you read stories to them) how can you resist? Nice furniture...looks comfortable and inviting to me!
