I made a quick stop downtown after having a late nite inspiration search online and on Facebook. I found this couch on a website that I had seen the previous couple of weeks, but THIS couch was not on there. :) I needed something multi-functional - and able to be used as a prop for photography - at my leisure. This double win came as a big surprise...and def. a huge blessing.
These 2 you CANNOT find at Ikea...not even close. Matter of fact, Ikea's cheapest couch is maybe $300 or so....and the 2 of these together were a great price, even on sale. :) AMAZING. They definitely have been loved and used, but still remain in really good structure and soundness. I'm excited to present to you....a more "finished" look for my living room/studio. :)
|My car is filled to the brim with Cobalt Blue Couch!!!!|

|Using my 13yr old 1950's lamps as accessories, plus my lovely glass decanter. I have bought various objects over the years, and it is really really NEAT to see them all come together in the matter of a day.|
The wooden cube came from my previous full-time job...in which as we were downsizing, extra furniture was being tossed out. I had ALWAYS loved that cube. Well, that was 2008 when I got laid off and I got to take it home!!!! It has been in a corner and un-used since 08. The lamp is a twin from a find in Paris TX in 1998. It was the year I saw Titanic for the first time...and these lamps have traveled EVERYWHERE with me since 98 and have survived! They never really "fit in" per say - but at the heart of it - they are totally my style and I was ALWAYS in love w/ the lampshades!!!! I also added the little glass decanter, because I bought that also many years ago. Probably in Oklahoma somewherz, because in 1999 I lived in the Adair/Tulsa area and often found cool things to buy. I probably bought it there. :) But it was not the whopping $40 that I see ppl charging for it - it was like $8. :) Definitely a great find in my wild life of moving.
I said all of this to say.
In one day, all these pieces I've had for years - made sense. :)
I was envisioning the completed project in which I could make various scenarios from these couches...leaving room for creativity and fun. I'm in awe that God hears and knows our simplest desires to illustrate a point. He is out there, and if we let him - he will be a part of our life and live through our every joy and our every moment of despair. :) Thank you God! U are awesome. :)
And yes, even when couch shopping. :)
