Bartering Rewards


Did Ronnie do good or what??? The cushions on these dining room chairs match the sofa & loveseat we have in our parlour.
This was part of the deal that we recieved from the antique dealer who was dragging his feet about paying my husband for a large job he had done a few months ago.
Now...my husband is a pretty reasonable, patient, and fair man.(He has grown much) but when someone tries to beat him out of expensive work already done...Its not gonna happen. I thought Gosh, I cant imagine "what or who" hes going to come home with on the day he left saying " Oh...TODAY Im "getting" paid" I really didnt want another kid especially someone elses! so when he pulled in with a truck full of antiques and not so old and even pretty nice furniture as well....I was pretty happy!
I am going to buy some remenant fabric in a soft, sage green, vertical stripe, for large pillows Im going to make. The sofa and love seat already have 2 large matching floral (fringed yuckky) pillows, but they gotta go..... I thought it would look nice to incorporate a stripe. we shall see. Off to Joannes we go! I need a few last minute supplies to tighten up the large doll order finally getting mailed out to Kentucky this week.


Ronnie was finally absolved from bringing home "thee" UGLIEST" sofa home years ago. I actually grounded him from ever bringing anything home without my permission first! That grounding has been lifted, He has been forgiven and has once again earned his right to barter, hunt, tag sale & or flea market without me! (folks, Im not kidding, this sofa he tried talking me into all thoses years ago,was orange with BIG gold and red flowers on it and... it was velvet!!!! the only thing missing was a cheesy velvet painting of Elvis, a naked chick(w/ pointy you know whats) in the back of a van OR a bull fighter!))
I am thrilled!
Ronnie is once again a free man...
