My High Point Purchase Is Here

5.13.2013

Don't you love when a big brown box shows up on your front porch? Especially when you really thought it would be much later before it showed up. My order from the High Point Furniture Market showed up last week and I love it.

Here I am with the fabulous Courtney of French Country Cottage, who I was beyond thrilled to meet, holding my purchase. There may have been a loud gasp when I spied this pillow and I was tickled that I could purchase one and have it shipped.  I could not wait to get this in my home.

Do you see it?

I knew it would be perfect on my brick red sofa in the great room.

Of course I made a few changes to go along with my new pillow. I did have this dough bowl on the floor under the table, but decided to place it on top and fill it with books. I think the old dough bowl and the cow just speak French country style.

I got this preserved boxwood ball from Antique Farmhouse a few weeks ago and placed it on this old clay pot.


I was so thrilled to get to buy this at wholesale price. Bad thing is I don't want to pay retail again.


I replaced the red wool rug with a new sea grass rug from overstock.com. I like the lighter look for the warmer months.

I have also made a little furniture switch in here and will share it soon. So many changes happening around here. Something new is being installed today and I will share that soon, too.

Busy, busy I have company arriving tomorrow.
Have a good one!

  1. What a beautiful pillow!... and it still amazes me how you transform a space with just a few simple changes. Not everyone has an eye for that.

  56. Due to your post, to start my day I read the wiki definitions of cow, bull and steer because I wasn't sure which I was looking at. I'm still not sure, but I like the pillow anyway.

    You ladies look marvelous!

  74. Kim, I'm so behind on my emails and just read this post. Love your new pillow! Looks perfect on your sofa. As for sofas, I've been looking for a new one and am leaning towards a red color very similar to yours. I really want to add a little more color into my living room. You might have had yours for some time now, but I would love to know who made it. I currently have a King Hickory...just not loving it anymore. I love the color and design of yours. Would love to know more about it! thanks!
