SO EXCITED! Indroducing "The Girls"!

Ok, I just can't contain my excitement about my latest thrift find!  Oh this is SO GOOD!  It's like so good I can't even type fast enough!  It's like better than the chocolate milkshakes I would crave when I was pregnant!  Or the first time I had tiramisu, or ran 5 miles, or when I got Flo my 95' Mustang GT 5.0L, 5 speed convertible!  Yes, it's THAT GOOD!

I went to one of my all time fav thrift stores and found this!
Introducing The GIRLS!

Are these not the sweetest thing?!!  Ready for the best part?  The cushions are springs with DOWN FILL!  YES DOWN! Soft, fluffy, cotton candy like DOWN!  It's like sitting on a cloud! They are in amazing shape with no funky smells or stains.  It's like they were sitting in a parlor that was never used!  Lucky Me!

Oh!  Just look at those LEGS! So curvy!  Such detail!  Makes my heart go pitter-patter!  No vacuum scuffs or stray dust bunnies clinging too these beauties!  It's not every day you come across a find as good as this!

Yes, they are pink and blue which doesn't actually fit into my "neutral" world.  But for now, they are just fine.  After finding these, I did order the zipper foot for my Pfaff and it should be here soon. Reupholstering these will be a task as I haven't tackled anything quite like these before.  However, shopping for upholstery for The Girls is going to be so much fun it will make the task well worth it!

Speaking of upholstery, do I stick to my comfortable bubble and go with a beautiful linen?  How about a nice silk?  Maybe just scares me! Water stains, finger prints, not to mention if I make a mistake...Let me rephrase that...When I make a mistake, the needle holes will show. lol~  How about a nice mocha velvet?  Or, hot pink!  My mind is racing with possibilities!

Now it's time to get back to reality!  The shop is doing well, and I've got to get back to my studio to replenish for the weekend!

If you’re a Cleveland Cavaliers fan in the market for a new hoops shoe, then pay attention, because we have the perfect option for you: the Nike LeBron Soldier Curry 1 10 in a Cavs friendly Team Red colorway. Although picking up the “Christ the King” nickname on the Kyrie 1 internet thanks to its similar look to the PE colorways of LeBron sneakers created for his sponsored high Curry 2.5 school in Queens, New York, there’s no official relation between this wine red and gold-accented Soldier 10 and KD Shoes For Sale the school.
