Must have curvy legs...

It seems a lot of things go on in my house when i have no choice but to stay home. The laundry gets folded....the dishes get emptied from the dw....rooms get cleaned and dusted....


it's amazing....


okay...you got me...i don't necessarily dust....i mean...i don't get out the feather duster....


but i do get out the ole swifter....


and run it over the hardwoods....


that i do.


This chair.....is one i picked up at my flea market a month ago.....


and i really didn't know where i was going to put it...


till i dragged it up to Lola's room.

I have been on the lookout for a chair with a little curve appeal...

because a girly chair must have girly curves...








Lola's room has been going thru a transformation for the last few months.....


with this was the final piece that i needed to complete it....


and don't worry...i'll show some pics of the final look as soon as i get her bed made..


because i am doing laundry as i write...


and...


her sheets happen to be in there....


i don't know about you....


but ....

oh never mind....

do you really want to know that my sheets don't get

washed as often as they should...







as a matter of fact i read that







sheets should be laundered ....







at least once a week.....







gasp







...once a week!







{just for the record...i'm pretty sure my mother in law is reading this....so i'm just stating it here..







that the sheets will be laundered the day she arrives.....pinky promise}







back to the chair....it's a pale blue grey......













i even love how the button above is hanging off from a thread...with that little pillow being one







of my favorites.....







with the curvy legs and wide seat....{sorta reminds me of myself}......





i'm just saying....














but please let me just mention that i have been hitting





the gym this week....





early...







as in... 6 am early....








i am on a roll.....














I also wanted to mention that i took bryan to see the beloved farm last sunday. He fell in love with it....actually.....he fell in love with the....








man room......








a room of wood ...and beams...and yes...








a mini fridge.








my man fell in love with a man room.








You don't think he gets tired of sitting on our white slip covered sofa's do you?



Oh..and one more thing...



seriously now...



i just want to let you know that i will be one of



those girls.....



yes...



one of those girls...



the over 30 ..married with children...



heading to the movies with some friends..



to see robert pattinson....



aka ..



edward...



yes..that will be me in the theatre...



drooling.











xo

We all need curvy legs somewhere in our abode! And I need to know where to get that sweet little pillow!

Simply Me Art said...

I need some curvy legs like that somewhere in my house. Lola is Lucky! 26 hrs till Jacob, but whose counting.xo

Chablis said...

Haha, I happen to have a pair of very curvy legs. Too bad my own legs were not what you were looking for.

I'm so glad to hear that you're a twi-hard..I feel connected on so many levels. :)

The Little Red Shop said...

Ohh, I wanna go! I went to a jewelry party tonight with most of my local married 30-something mom friends...so, they've probably used up their free pass for this week!

Have fun!

That is the sweetest little chair, xv.

Sandy said...

I am up before dawn on a cold, rainy morning and trying to be very, very quite. What better way to spend my time than by finding great blogs like yours? Love the chair and I had a great time reading back through some of your other posts. I love the way you use your blog.

Federica said...

Lovely little chair.
Hugs,
Federica.

Martha said...

L.O.V.E. that chair my dear...and what about that pillow? Is it okay if I ask that?
I love curvy chairs...I have one of my G-ma's that I love {maybe not as curvy as that one}...it just needs to be reupholstered...which when I finally decide what color...I am sure it will look grand!
I'm soooo glad about that beautiful farmhouse... I just KNOW it will happen for you...and couldn't be better it has a man room or that he is in love with it himself...

*The Beautiful Life* said...

Oh how I covet that chair! Better be glad I can't make it on the 5th -- that chair just might come up missing! :)

Lucky Lola...that chair is simply gorgeous! I really need to tag along with you when you go shopping:) And guess what? We'll be doing the same thing this weekend...except I'm taking my teenage daughter to see "that vampire movie":) And she'll be the one drooling!

Simone said...

Love the chair, it's gorgeous,I never find stuff like that!
Really well done on the gym, I am so impressed...you are really something...something fantastic that is :)
I loved the story about the cute plumber with the tight designer jeans....yum.
And the farm....wow....amazing!
I too have a little boy home with chicken pox, not too many spots though, thank goodness.
Have a good day,
Simone xoxo
PS Do you have a plan for all that gorgeous furniture etc etc that we are going to find in France? Just planning ahead, ya know....

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

what a pretty chair!!

Staying home generally means some things get done as we get bored. LOL

Okay, I admit it, I haven't read the Twilight books.

Yea, Yea, Yea.

Good for you for hitting the gym!

I need to do that too.

Lissa said...

cute chair! You always have the cutest stuff! apparently you didn't see that oprah show about laundering your bed. I'm not going to write about it here because it totally freaked me out and now I wash our sheets all the time AND vacuum the mattresses. Not because I'm this amazing cleaner but because she scared me...

love the whole marshmallow bit... very anthro.

Carmen said...

I love that chair!!! So pretty! And so YOU. I would be washing our sheets right now but my washer is on the fritz! :(

T said...

Now that chair is darn cute! Way to go girl on the early morning workout!

Mary said...

Now I'm seriously thinking I should come on the 5th. You will be distracted and I can slip out with that chair under my coat. I LOVE it! Fabulous find! ~mary~

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

I love you, Kasey. : )

Kristin said...

lOvE the chair; why can't i find stuff like that...sigh...wish my little girl had a room of her own that i could decorate; that chair wouldn't last two minutes in the kids' room; it would roped and hog tied like an old cow...hhhmmm...maybe i should find one so i don't have to be the old cow...;0)
saw the trailer to new moon and drooled all over myself...wish i had some 30 something friends to go with; somehow i don't think studly cowboy would appreciate it if i made him go with me ;0)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Great post! Love love love the chair! Love it! Did I mention that I love it? I also love the pillow. And I too will be one of those 30-somethings headed to see that particular flick tomorrow night. (No midnight showings around these parts...ha!) Waiting on pins and needles to see Miss Lola's budoir!

Sarah said...

Adorable chair and that pillow is awesome, where did you get it?
I love the L on the sweet little dress on the closet door!
SOooooo....what is the outcome, are you guys going to make an offer on the farm??? I am so anxious to see what happens with that for you guys!! Dream, dream, dream!!!
Good for you on getting to the gym!!! Have a fabulous day!

Anita said...

I started back at the gym this week, cause apparently the damn weight loss fairy isn't coming :) The chair looks great chez toi...

I am HOME this week and working on plastering and painting the dining room... maybe I'll update you next week :)

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

I remember being in elementary school and a rather prissy girl informed me that every Tuesday her mom would wash all of the sheets in the house. And they had like 5 kids. Every. Tuesday. In that moment I thought that something might be very wrong in my house....and then I realized that her house was the problem one.

Julie Harward said...

I love your chair..everything about it..the gray blue of it, the buttons the legs. I love curvy legs on everything...tables, chairs, and especially on those cute little grand babies! Enjoy the movie..I want to know if you liked it! Come say hi :D

Mifter's Mom said...

That chair is STUNNING.

You will have to push past this 34-year old mother to get to Edward first LOLOL :-)

Tattered Goods said...

Smiles,
Sheila

paige said...

the anthro girls probably think you're mad at them though.

oh sorry
was that a secret

undomestic chica said...

PamperingBeki said...

Last year I made a commitment to wash all the sheets every Saturday. I lasted about 4 months.

And it was so nice to have fresh sheets all the time.
But what a pain.

I think Rob P. is ugly.
Don't hate me. Can we still be friends?

Debra said...

I'm starting to really like curves in furniture there are so many colors that you can paint furniture. I'm starting to use more bold colors and I'm loving it. What a beautiful chair.

the cinnamon post said...

I think I know where you read that about the sheets...was it "the family at home"? I know...I was kind of freaking out when I read that too...lets just say my kids beds don't get laundered once a week and leave it at that....but I do love that book...and the pretty chair.

Jerri said...

Kasey I could go on and on but just know that everytime I stop by you make me smile! Enjoy "drooling" at Midnight, I hope to be snoring by then! :)

caren said...

Love curvy legs and I don't change my sheets as often as I should,,,so there, I admitted it! i'm lucky to get the laundry done. I'm going to see that vampire tomorrow....friday........can't wait. And I'm way over 30.

Rue said...

Good morning Kasey :)

I love that chair and the little pillow! So cute :)

I'm curious about the farm and what you're thinking of doing... hmmm...

I can't get into the whole Edward thing because he's young enough to be my son and actually only a couple of years older than Alex LOL

xoxo,
rue

Andrea Villarreal said...

What a gorgeous chair! Speaking of sheets my boys both need new ones. Being that last night Tyler brought his top sheet to me and the dog has gnawed a lovely hole in it:) And Zach's sheet ripped almost in half as he was trying to pull it out from under said dog:)Good thing I don't buy expensive sheets!!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Absolutely love the chair Kasey. I'm sure Lola's room is breathtaking:)

So proud of you for getting to the gym...so far I've done it too. Had some sugar... so fell off the wagon there a bit, but today's a new day right??

We hit New Moon next week...can't wait. Go team Edward:)

Blondie said...

This chair is adorable! Sorry I haven't been by in a while honey. I have been swamped! Hopefully all is well and you have an amazing weekend. Kori xoxo

Alyssa said...

So lovely! Lola's got it good ;) I am soooo glad to hear your man LOVED the barn - so when are you moving? Where is it exactly? Is it near the river by chance? I just saw a similar barn for sale. I still dream...

a little bit vintage said...

I ADORE the chair! I need one. :) Happy weekend!

Smiles,
Rachel
