Hello, dear friends! Now, I know what you are thinking. How could this shabby chic PINK girl have bought RED chairs? Well, what you don't know is that there is a WALK ON THE WILD SIDE RED girl just waiting to come out!! A couple of months ago, my friend Jean, and I went to IKEA. I had heard that IKEA carried Cath Kidston items, and I was wanting some of her tin canisters. I had never been to this store before, and let me tell you, it was quite an experience. The store was very large and kind of like a maze (I later found out they had a store map). In fact, I felt like Gretel and thought maybe I should leave bread crumbs behind so that Jean and I could find our way out. I did not find any Cath Kidston, but I did find these red chairs and instantly fell in love with them. I loved the cute printed cherry apple red material they were made of and also the shape of them. I was really wanting to change my living room up and so to make a long story short, I bought these chairs. I also bought two white chairs to replace my sofa that I had for several years. You may remember that I have said if I find something I really love, I buy it and then find a place for it. I began looking around my living room to see if I had other reds, and I did. I had a red and white checked wreath, some red in a pillow, and some red in pictures around the room so I felt that my red chairs would fit in nicely. I also found the cutest kitty cat embroidered pillows to go with the chairs. Well, what do you think? Is this red working for you? I hope so because I am loving it! I hope you have had a good day today. I am back to tutoring at my school two days a week. I am enjoying being with the children again. They are so precious and so eager to learn. I love each and every one of you and wish you the very best in all things!
