My Lobsters are happy, and so am I. The possible future sofa I posted about yesterday now belongs to me. It's BRIGHTER in person and it's actually orange, yellow & red. It's in AWESOME condition "Better than I even expected." And I paid $50.00 for it.
This was the photo from the classified ad, (Which I decorated a little.)
The seller was a friendly older woman named Eleanor who had quite a lovely 1940s - 1950's home.
One of the rooms in the basement of her house had 1950s bi plane wallpaper on a whole wall. It was really cool and I totally wish I had took a picture to show you guys "But I didn't want to look like some weirdo snapping pics in a strangers house."
The seller told me that the couch had belonged to her parents who died in the 1970's. She then took it and had it in a spare room in her basement and and had only used it 4 or 5 times.
The seller also had a HUGE aloe vera plant sitting in the window sill of the room the sofa bed was in. I told her it was nice and looked to be thriving. She then asked if I wanted some of it to re-plant. The next thing you know shes digging in her aloe plant pulling me out some pieces.
I planted what she gave me and I hope it survives the moving shock. I will show you my newly acquired aloe in my next post.
The fun doesn't stop there... I was then asked if I wanted to keep the bedding that was on the sofa bed because if not She was just going to donate them to a thrift store.
I have not taken a good look at them yet they are still in the vehicle and I need to wash them, but I know that two of them are vintage wool 50s - 60s blankets and for sure one has satin trim. There is also a 60's floral sheet.
*Sigh of happiness*
Thank you Eleanor!!
This is the bed mattress inside the hide-a-bed.
As I type this I am sitting on my new to me Sofa. When I suddenly thought to myself... I hope I don't wear the foam out in these cushions of this couch because I like it way to much.
"I seriously think the weirdest things"
Apparently it will give me a HEALTHFUL sleep too so that's a bonus.
I am looking forward to garage saling on Saturday morning.
Maybe I will find some throw pillows.
