My Mom's Day Surprise!

***edited to add give away info***
... and a give away. 
Please read to the end for give away information. 

Saturday morning Honey and I had to drive to Dallas we had some business there and we visited my Sister in Law who is hospitalized there. 
We were gone about 5 hours. 

When I got home this is what I had waiting for me. 

I couldn't believe my eyes! 
L@@k for yourself!

I saw it from the road. 
You may not remember this settee and chair. 
I know you're probably getting sick of hearing about Bargainland...
but I posted about it here.

As I said before, 'it's rough around the edges' 
It has beautiful ball feet. 

It has nail head trim and curvy lines. 
I've been reading online how to re-upholster furniture. 
Found some good ideas and tips at 

My kids got a really great price for this furniture too. 
The price was marked down from my original post. 

The talked 'em down like they were pros! 
Wonder where they might have learned that from? 

I can't wait to get to work on this couch and chair. 
I'm thinking it will lead to a total living room make-over. 

Happy Mom's Day Indeed! 

And now the give away information I was telling you about...
Please visit my new bloggy friend at Trials of a Townhouse
She is pretty new to blogging. 
She has lots of talent and ideas 
and is posting plenty of great show and tell ideas 
as she and her hubby remodel and remake their Townhouse. 
I spent quite a while there this past weekend just reading her archives and viewing her pictures. 
She is offering this give away of 'Jewelry' that she makes herself.

The pair is fantasic! You will find yourself logging many hours restoring them, but your results will be nothing short of amazing. Really. Very much wish I could go to Bargainland.
