The Happy Couch

Where can I find happy furnitureLots of good stories are sad in the end.  This is one of those stories, but I thought the subject matter was so cute that you’d want to hear about it anyway.

Even though this has a sad ending I really did get a lot of satisfaction out of thinking about it.

I was at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and I saw this couch.  It spoke to me.

It spoke to me like no other piece of furniture ever has.  Look at how amazingly cute it is.  I really wanted to buy the couch, but there were two problems.  First, the couch cost $908.  And, YES, that is the sale price.  Second, I literally have no place in my home to put this couch.  Happy looking furniture

I thought about building on a sun room to accommodate the happy couch.  But…my accountant assures me that this isn’t a possibility at this time.

This is probably the cutest, HAPPIEST, funnest piece of furniture I have ever seen.  I’ve been thinking about buying it all week.  “Thinking about buying something” just happens to be number 221 on the list in case you’re keeping track. It totally counts for a Pleasant Event.

I even went back to Hobby Lobby a second time just too look at it.  The Happy CouchDon’t you think me and this couch belong together?  So do I.  But the reality is that we can’t always have everything we want.    2013-03-25 14.42.29

On the way out of the store the second time, I noticed a similar, but much smaller sofa at a much smaller price, $350. It’s not quite as happy as the big couch, but it’s still very cute.

It would be perfect in my bedroom. I could throw my clothes on it at the end of the day instead leaving them on the floor like I do now.

If it cost half what they’re currently asking, my husband might actually buy this for me Mothers Day. He’s very neat and gets tired of seeing my clothes on the floor.

But for now, I’m just enjoying thinking about buying it. But, you never know.  They say  thoughts lead to actions, and I’ve been thinking about it a lot.

    This is the cutest, fun, spring couch in the world. Put it on your front porch and you may just find me out there drinking coffee in the morning:)

      I know, right…I might start drinking coffee just to have something to do out there. I might just have to find a way to build the sunroom/greenhouse on my porch. That couch wants me.

    Those couches could totally go with my “decorate with whatever the heck we have” motif! I love your taste. :)

    That couch is totally you. I saw it last week and thought it would be amazing in my craft room, but since my craft room is still not finished and I have no money, it’s not going to happen. :(
