Red Toile

My mother in law is at it again and has bought herself a new sofa, sooo she wanted to know if I wanted her red toile sofa. Well, YES! We were going to put it in our den but it was like a sofa showroom in there so we decided to put it in our front room. This is a funny little room that was originally the dining room but with a wall removed and an addition it is now just a funny little room. We have our piano in here and it is nice to have some extra seating. I can see the cushions need some adjusting and I need to shop for pillows.


A new rug is a must as the old green one does not match.

Our little Chi has already found her way up on the new sofa. I am sure it will be a favorite of the cat who will want to look out the front window.
