Family "Chair"loom

Well, I will have a stream of posts stemming from this weekend, that's for sure! I had a lot of free time this weekend (my sweetie was away for a big chunk of it, so that's why), and I found myself really getting things done! In addition to the usual housework & laundry that I accomplished, I "got my craft on"
in a really big way.

First off though, I want to share with you a new addition to our home that arrived over the weekend!

I am so excited to show you our new (well, new to us) chair!! This is a family heirloom (thus the cheesy term "chair"loom), and it came from my grandmother's house. It was hardly ever used in her second living room. It is now in our master bedroom, and I am definitely going to put it to use. I already have it in place by a window, with my magazine rack close by. All I need is a cup of coffee & a throw blanket, and I'm good to go.

I love the way this little throw pillow looks on it too. It was one of the things I registered for, and remember being so excited when I opened it at my bridal tea. It has a clear slot on the front where you can put a picture. I chose the one of us cutting our wedding cake. :)

Look at those sleek, curvy lines. Love them!...

I love the little armchair covers too...

My momma & I hauled this out of the house & into her vehicle all by ourselves. We then unloaded it- just the two of us- at my house, and put it in place in our master bedroom.
Yeah, that's how we roll. :)

I love the elegant, vintage style of this chair, and can't wait to enjoy it! My favorite furniture pieces, after the ones Zach & I bought, of course, are these hand-me-downs from my grandmother. It is so awesome to know that she used & enjoyed these pieces, and that they were once a part of the house where my dad grew up. I hope that I can keep them in their stellar condition, so that my little ones can enjoy them for years to come too.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We did- even though my sweetie was absent for some it, we were each having a good time where we were. I spent time with family over the weekend, talking & laughing as usual. He spent a lot of time with friends out of town for his best friend's wedding, where he was also the photog...I'm so proud! He then spent Saturday with his dad at UA for a scrimmage...Roll Tide Roll!! Can't wait for football to begin! Just one more boring Saturday left, then our Saturdays are booked for months! Yay!

Our trio also sang on Sunday morning, and I enjoyed it so much. Three sweet kids were baptized that morning, so that started the day out right. We spent the afternoon at home, just relaxing.

Here's to another great week! I will post soon on my
weekend projects!
