If You Want The Best Seat In The House...

This sign hangs in our sunporch:


 
The springs on our couch are shot, so we've been looking for a new sofa.  Haven't found what I'm looking for, but we did find this great chair and ottoman on Overstock.com.  Delivery was just $2.95, believe it or not, and the chair was on sale!!


You think she can read?

And on another animal front...Do you see the suet feeder on this tree? 

 No?  That's because it's GONE!  It's the fifth one we've 'lost'.  We think the raccoons have a stash of them someplace.

Love the pattern of the chair and ottoman. Deliver price is unbeatable. Enjoy!

Our dog, Nessa, occupies the center section of our sofa in the rec room so that she can rotate periodically to put her head in each of our laps in turn. No favoritism here.

I really like that chair and the stripes. I too need a new sofa, and this time I'm getting plain arms not rounded ones. Ikea perhaps.

When you get a new couch, just put the old one out on the front porch. That's what we do here. ;-)

I love the new chair and ottoman. Do they have sofas at Overstock?

How about this rain?

Kay said...

That's beautiful! Ummm... $2.95 delivery? You are so LUCKY you don't live in Hawaii!

Linda said...

Just like a cat, always feeling superior.

Loved the racoon story. I suspect you are right.

Lena said...

LOVE the new couch! Nate Berkus always talks about Overstock.com as a good place to get stuff. I must check it out now for sure!

George said...

If your cat can't read, she certainly has a fine sense as to what is comfortable. Will she have any input into the decision regarding the new couch?
Thank you for the birthday wishes.

Kitty has a lovely new chair. $2.50 seems like a rediculous price for delivery? Where was the warehouse, next door?

Kimberly said...

Good Lord, $2.50? I have to pay 10 just to have groceries delivered. Although I am NOT complaining because otherwise I'd have my knuckles dragging the ground. Love the new chair though - and what it holds. Miss my kitties.

I know this will sound horrible, but I despise raccoons. I aim for them when ever I am driving:~?

Gilly said...

Its the squirrels over here........

Lovely chair, too!

HI Kathy, You always find the BEST deals. You did get a great deal on that chair and ottoman. Can't wait to see what kind of deal you will get on a new sofa...

Sorry about your suet feeder... We lost two of them to the raccoons until I started using one of those heavy-duty black clips... They can't budge it now.... ha

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Kathy,
Guess what? We have the same chair and ottoman and love it...it's in our computer room and guess who sits on it the most? Hurricane!! Yep, he thinks it is his chair. I will have to find a photo of him sitting on it and send it off to you...I love the color also. We have a maroon fleece blanket draped over the back...It's a great find!

What a great looking chair and ottoman! Your sign certainly is fitting for this post. LOL Good luck with the couch shopping. It's always fun to look for new things and find a great bargain.

Oh how funny.

I really do like the chair and ottoman. I've never tried OverStock.com. My daughter-in-law buys from there at times. I will have to check it out. I am looking for a few things.

Amy said...

$2.95 for delivery? Where do you live?!! That's unheard of!! Great buy.

The chair and ottoman are very pretty, I love the colors and pattern. The chair looks great for reading in too...and I have no problem moving the cat, cute as she is!
