Happy Birthday to Me!

It's not for a few weeks, but I received an early present last night:

I found it on craigslist for a great price and Keith very sweetly decided that I could buy it as an early birthday present.  And then my sister very sweetly offered to go with me to pick it up.  [It was a fun mini-road trip -- we cracked up hearing our GPS say "Punkin Town Road" in its very serious, computer-generated voice.]


It used to sit at a wedding venue in the brides' room, where I'm sure it was the perfect backdrop for many beautiful wedding photos.


I love the scale, the feminine lines, the slightly more rustic upholstery and wood details......it's perfect!  Thanks, honey!

P.S. As another early birthday present, I found out late Sunday night that our paperwork was shipped to Ethiopia two weeks ago!  Bring on the referrals!

It's beautiful! Congratulations on the sofa find and the adoption process! Could I ask...what kind of camera do you use?

Britt said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks Deborah! I have a Canon Rebelxsi that I am in the process of learning how to use. Even with my limited skills and knowledge it takes much better photos than my old point and shoot. If you're in the market I would definitely recommend a Rebel.
