Happy Spring!

I sure have missed you guys!! So sorry I have been MIA lately, my Mom was here for a visit and I was enjoying spending time with her and honestly it went by way to fast ): I miss my MOMMY already!! Today I was busy trying to visit everyone and catch up on what has been going on out here, I feel so detached from all my blogging friends! I was honored to see that Cindy mentioned ME and my Ikea couches on her famous and inspiring blog she is going to sell her couches and will be purchasing new ones from Ikea. So I thought I would show my living rm pic again, I haven't had much time to take any new pic's recently. I hope everyone is enjoying Spring and starting to feel some spring like weather, I know alot of you have been freezing and could use some warm weather!! You could always come here to FL for a visit?? That would be fun, I have plenty of rm for guests, LOL. Well I'm off to finish catching up with everyone.

I am curious to know how you clean the fabric on the couch. Can you launder it yourself or is it Dry Clean ?

I think it's a wonderful couch.

Hi Kelly,
Love those couches, I can not believe they came from IKEA, they look like really expensive designer ones! Let me know too, how do they wash, and how do they feel, I have three big guys that really tear up the furniture. I had to install a big 2" thick board under mine not to long ago.

Happy Spring to you, and give your precious dog a kiss on her head for me! We are sure enjoying my sons bulldog Bentley, they have such sweet personalities.

You were wise to enjoy your time with your mother. I lost mine two years ago and wish she was still here. I love your livingroom arrangement.

"her famous and inspiring blog"...Haha you made my day with that comment!!!

Again, thank you, if I hadn't seen how beautiful that couch looks in your home I probably wouldn't be buying one! I sold my couch today so I'll be off to Ikea tomorrow! I can hardly wait!!!

Hi Kelly,

I saw the post about your sofas on Cindy's blog and your living room is so pretty. I really enjoy your posts and you have a lovely home. Boy do I know what you mean about missing your Mama. It's hard to see them go.

Hope you have a GREAT week!!

Glad you're back, and that mama time is important, so hopefully you've got pictures if you went and did some fun stuff and we can see them! I would love to be in Florida, right now in Michigan it's cold, gray, and chilly!

Heather ~Pretty Petals said...

Hi Kelly, I love your living room! I have been contemplating getting the ikea couches too... and was wondering if they would hold up ok?? If you get time maybe you could let me know if you are happy with that? I mean, they are a GREAT price next to those ashwell ones! lol

Your pink shelf above your couch is SOOOO amazing!
