Joe's birthday chair!

Many moons ago, I planned on getting a chair for Joe. I love my man so much. He works so hard! But at the end of his long, hard workday, he would have to come home, and relax on a tiny, very uncomfortable sofa made of vinyl. Vinyl is not comfy or cozy. So, I plotted, and schemed, and made a trip to the local Lazy Boy, and waited, IMPATIENTLY for his birthday to arrive! Well, Joe turned 35 without the chair, as we had to wait a few more days (still a surprise) and finally, as of this morning, look what Joe gets to come home and snuggle up in!!!
It is MUCHO comfortable!!! And when I lose a few more pounds I can snuggle up with him!
Happy birthday my love of eternity!

I picked out this fabric because the saleslady told me it, being tapestry, would last through the millenium. She told me that with its lifetime warranty, and the chairs lifetime warranty, the day my kids leave for college, the chair will still look the same as today. Of course she sold me at that statement, its what she does. I am helpless against sales techniques. But even so, isn't it gorgeous? Look at the stitching! All of the detail on those leaves are raised stitches!!

YAAAAAAAY!!!! We have an iconic piece of furniture!

I must echo the statement made by the sales lady. We have had our tapestry couch for 14 1/2 years, and it still looks as good as the day we bought it [it has been cleaned occasionally!]. I am hoping that it will NEVER wear out because I love it. My children tell me that it is very old-fashioned, but I don't care. I love the Victorian look and always will!
