I feel a little guilty not posting and doing any projects the last two weeks, but I have to say I am enjoying living in the slow lane.
Even though it has been a little quiet I have been doing a few things that I thought I would share with you.
I have been out furniture store hopping to find seating for my living room. I love this room, the rug and fabric on the chairs.
I found and liked these hybrid recliners with classic blue and white houndstooth fabric at a local furniture store, but they are not very comfortable. The backs do not recline, only the foot rest goes up… hence the wording… hybrid recliner.
I like the fabric though and wish I could have it made on two really comfy recliners that…
…Ed likes that we saw in the same store and made by the same company. We were told we could not get the fabric I liked on the comfy recliners. :-(
I wish furniture manufacturers would allow you to use any upholstery fabric on super comfy recliners. I want to find out why they only offer overdone trendy print fabric or leather for recliners. I want to change “furniture manufacturer fabric option mentality” in this regard!!! Why not allow feminine fabric styles on super comfy recliners? Comfort + Style = Win/Win for all and no one, as in couples… have to compromise.
I will keep searching and furniture store hopping until I find or get made what I envision… I know I could get it custom made at a high-end designer showroom, but I need affordable.
When I haven’t been out looking at furniture I have been doing a lot of reading.
I bought a Kindle Paperwhite right before we went to Mexico and I am loving it. I use my local library, Overdrive and Amazon to get my books for free. If you don’t know about Overdrive, here it is in a nutshell:
If you have a library card, you can have access to a huge amount of audiobooks and e-books that your library carries, all completely FREE. You have to check them out online just as you would a normal library book and return them online when you’re done, but all free and EASY to do right on Amazon. Yes… the libraries use Amazon Kindle to check out and return books… again all for FREE! To see if your local library offers it: Click here to visit Overdrive.com
I just finished reading this series for a second time. It is what I would like to do when I retire, minus stumbling upon murders.
Currently reading this. I am not sure what to read next… Any suggestions? What are you reading now?
I bought this double ruffle sleeve shirt. I hope it fits. Perfect for wearing out and about in the southern autumn. It also comes in white, green, and black.

FUN FACT: Ever wonder why font typefaces are displayed like this…? The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog.
Answer: It is because the sentence is a pangram that contains all the letters of the alphabet. Important when you are trying to see what every letter looks like in a certain font when you are considering it to use.
Another pangram: Back in my quaint garden jaunty zinnias vie with flaunting phlox. Do you know any others?
My new fave on the makeup front… When we went to Mexico I got a trial size of It Cosmetics – CC+ Color Correcting Full Cover.
A few readers asked me what I used on my face after seeing this photo and this is what I was using. This week I bought a full-size tube of it. It has the best of everything in it… it’s lightweight, anti-aging, UVA and UVB protection and my skin still looks fresh at the end of the day. :-)
So what have you been up to lately?
Next week I will be posting something new I added to the hallway of darkness…so stay tuned for that and more. XO
