Mystery Chairs: Partially solved

Ok, so remember my mystery chairs?
I have a pair of these that I got on ebay for a song. well, maybe a song and a half but still a good deal and it was within my budget.

Recently, as we've been thinking about where we will live when we sell the house, we've been talking about recovering them. It's been a fun "dreaming project" where every time we walk by them we say, "Hey honey, what about a yellow floral?" .... "Hmm.... I think a retro print, maybe in a blue?"

Tonight I did a little google image searching after finding my old ebay purchase listing to know what key words to search for. Enter search terms: Hollywood Regency Slipper Chair.

BINGO. I found a pair just like mine. I mean CRAZZZY. Granted this set has been recushioned/reupholstered and is for sale in a fancy store. But they are just like mine!!!

The bad news is, they don't know the creator either. Boo hiss... They are listing them as 1970's which is totally cool with me. And for $2400 for the pair, I have plenty of wiggle room on the reupholstery costs.

Oh Happy Day

PS - I turn 28 today.

This picture just about sums up how I am feeling today, sending some major wishes out into the universe.

Some details...

After the big FOR SALE SIGN surprise last week I wanted to share some details. Granted, this won't be all the details cause we are still working out some of the details and therefore I can't share them since I don't know... but here goes.

Eric and I have been dreaming about a simpler life in a big city. Oxymoron much? Not quite. You see, we bought our beauty of a house (selfish plug here - is for sale, email me), when we thought we would settle down and start a family, put down some roots, buy some furniture, etc.

Fast forward a few years and thats not really our dream anymore. Well, it still kinda is, just not in the same way we thought it would be. Now, we have dreams of living in a much smaller home, having only 1 car, walking to the grocery store, living with less, traveling and changing the world.

Why now? Why not? Since I have another year in grad school, it will be a little while before we make any MAJOR changes but since we know our home will make someone very happy, and we are zoned for awesome schools, we thought we would see if someone might want to call it their new home before the school year starts.

So, that's about all I can share now. I hope you don't mind if I get a little philosophical about making these life changes - I hope you'll share with me too.
