My $1 orange tufted chair--
perfect for my bedroom;
I was thrilled.

The lady at the garage sale thought no one would want it;
she probably would have given it to me.

It's very comfortable.

Carrot-orange and velvety...
It couldn't be better.

(My man also got us a [new] set of fire irons. No more poking with a stick. A happy thought indeed!)

Don't worry...I have since cleaned out the dusties from the tufts of my chair! :)

Foogalicious!!!! I love it!! Orange/velvet/tufty/retro/junky-chic! It's a bone fide category, I'm sure. In my mind. :-) We definitely share the aesthetic drift. I won't take credit (or blame). Maybe I got it from you. Anyway. Love this chair. And it's just out there enough that you'll have a few months of enjoyment before it becomes all the rage and orange tufted seventies chairs can be found on the cover of Country Living. hehe.

That is one GREAT chair! I had the same one in hot pink for a few years (mine was $2 and covered VERY securely with a quilt :D)

The little blur in the bottom corner of the middle picture is the part of the whole post though!

Garage saling time. Hooray!!! What a good deal you were able to get! Our city wides are coming up in May I think and I am very excited! Time to start thinking about another baby to provide for, and garage sales are soo helpful for that! How fun too have fire irons too. They always look so neat and homey sitting beside a fire. Miss you and little Greta too;o)

Dear Katya,

I used to have an orange chair also, but I couldn't bring it to the cottage - no room:(

Yours looks exactly right in that corner...all it needs is a pillow and maybe a throw...

blessings on your Monday,

Lady M
