Settee Update

So, remember the gorgeous piece of furniture I snagged at the thrift store the other week? As it turns out, I am finding a lot of similar pieces at furniture stores and on-line. Check this one out. $1,399 + fabric costs (ouch, that could be another $700). Now that is a pricey foyer piece.

And mine? Drumroll...

A whopping 50 smakaroos. That's right, friends. 50 big ones.

Of course all the fabrics I am seriously considering for reupholstery are ungodly expensive, but totally worth it, right, honey?

Let me know which one you like:

I have always been into patterns, mixing styles, and I love a more wordly look (as opposed to traditional and matchy matchy). The sofa would be chocolate brown or charcoal.

I already e-mailed a trusty friend for her thoughts, but would appreciate yours as well!

Adventures in Eating

Check out these chompers (still only 6 teeth, but she can eat ANYTHING):

Thanks to my lovely husband, Dalia pretty much refuses to use a "baby" cup (sippy) anymore. And while this seems like a good thing, it makes my life harder!

Enjoy some Dalia photos, oh how my child loves to eat:

Dipping the spoon is her new favorite thing:
She claps for herself after she makes it to her mouth.
And, the big girl cup!


Don't forget to VOTE FOR DALIA, photo #1! I think she is still in first place, but don't forget to vote once daily until Sunday!
