The New Fainting Couch

Before we left for Louisiana, our beloved fainting couch started falling apart! Mabel and I were both afraid of it! The day we got home, Hank and Sue's Mom, the thrift store aficionado, told us there were several fainting couches at our amazing magical thrift store (another blog post I need to write!). I found one that would suit us...very sturdy, well made. The down side it was peach...not the best for a black dog that rolls in mud daily! (The pillow behind Mabel is the color of the new couch.) And...it was part of a set...dirt cheap but still a set of two. Since the redneck in me has always wanted a sofa on the back porch, and the fainting couches I had prices were more than double the price of these two... I did it!


And I LOVE them both! The new fainting couch is wider and I don't need to pull another chair over when Mabel starts stealing my space. And it's longer... we both have spots to curl up in! The porch sofa??? It's the bomb! I curl up on it after swimming and watch the stars! And the other night when Mabel had a tummy ache and wanted to be outside at 2 a.m... I fell asleep on it! 

So, we've joined the "blanket over the sofa club!"

Sounds like a win -win for all!!! Mom puts sheets on the sofas here - so much easier to just toss in the wash than to steam clean the fabric:)
