My new chair says ..."IT'S ALL ABOUT ME !!

 Be still my heart....

Most of you might know that 
I LOVE BLACK AND WHITE...

I have a lot of it throughout my home...

A good and sweet friend is selling her house and a lot of her furniture and
she had this beauty 
to sell to ME....!!

A frenchy TOILE Ladies Chair....$200.00...can you believe it..??.....meee, either..!!
and my heart skips a beat every time I think,
 IT'S MINE....!!


OOPS....in the first photo, I'd forgotten to add the back, fluffy pillow....

 

OOO....and a beautiful matching ottoman came with it.....

...can you see why I get so excited to add this perfect set to my new master bedroom  ??

and the great, GREAT thing about Black and White....
ANY pretty color goes with it...
just like TURQUOISE.

OK....you know how one new thing calls for something else...

Yes, ma'am...I needed a small table to go beside this beauty....
just something to hold

a cup of  coffee or tea.......

a glass of favorite wine....

candle.......

a vase of  beautiful flowers....

You know....
all the things that make us feel special..... 


Some of the friends that's been reading SWEET NOTHINGS for a few years might remember
this little unfinished table I bought a few years back for $2.99.
 
I painted her in a beautiful
RED....

and have enjoyed using this little table ever since.



Well, it's the only small table I have...so I thought,
"OK, I'll paint it black...or white."

No paint on hand so I just sat the little table, dressed in RED, beside 
the new chair....

UH.....OHHHH...

 
I'M  IN  LOVE  !!!!


 I just simply FORGOT that RED goes with ANY color under the sun....



..
Yes, ma'am....

I love the red mixed in with the black and white and turquoise...

gives it that unexpected element we love for all our rooms.


I put my large BRASS tray on  top....


Put the two Black and White
cardboard
magazine holders on the lower shelf...

I bought these at Target, last year, I think...for about 39 cents each....

TARGET is my go-to place !!










This is going to be a wonderful place to glance thru and drool over new magazines,
have a cup of coffee or tea....
or
watch a JOHNNY DEPP movie on tv.....UH HU !!


OK...CUTE CUP...
let me borrow your cute SAUCER for a minute....









I just took some
SUGAR COOKIES
out of the oven..




I found this vintage beautiful book
AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS
about 4 years ago in an antiques store....

SOOO, let me see:

1.  this good book...
2.  some "just out of the oven" Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese Icing....
3.  this comfy and pretty "new" chair

WOW

HOW BLESSED CAN ONE OLDEN WOMAN BE.....??


 Yes, I am thrilled to have this chair in my new bedroom....

but I am more thrilled to have been given the blessing of being able to help out a dear friend, even in this tiny way..

XOXO bj
