Welcome to the family, bright orange chair.

As some of you know, I have been on the hunt for another chair to go in my living room. I had one wall that really needed some seating, and I was dying to have a chair that I could curl up in and read, nap, whatever...I just wanted to be able to sit on something other than a wooden chair or this leather sofa...

Well, after this weekend I am happy to say I finally found one, and I love it! When I got it home from Macy*s CLEARANCE Furniture Store at Town Center Mall. I purchased a roughly $1,200 Martha Stewart chair for a whole $188. That's right, I got my lovely new chair for about 85% off...yes, I am serious. I just love bargain hunting!!
When I first put it in the living room, I must admit, I was overwhelmed. My living room is not a large space, and I am used to seeing a lot of open wall space around my window. Monday morning, however, when I woke up and walked downstairs I thought "I LOVE this chair!!" and last night as I curled up to watch the Bachelor (thank you LG, for your swivel TV) I thought "I LOVE this chair!!" So needless to say, I am happy to welcome my new orange chair into my home.

I also brought home a new ottoman from the Macy*s Clearance Floor. I purchased it intending to sew a striped fun cover & make it my new living room ottoman, but when I placed it at the foot of my bed to sit for a few days while I hunted fabric, I realized it was perfect right where it sat. This purchase was another huge bargain. I was told the original price was $400-ish, and I purchased it for a whole $44. Did I mention you should go to this clearance store if you need furniture? You should. And ask for George, he was so helpful :)

PS, Valentine's Day is less than a month away...and since love is so sweet, my (very minimal) decorations equals one cute candy bar in my living room :) Some guests love it, some hate it...ahem, elizabeth ;)
