Wow! Maureen called early in the morning to say there was a great flea market going on a few towns away on the mainland. I fell in love with this chair! Definite inspiration. So, I bought it, squeezed it into her truck and am going to do my living room around it. What color walls, though?
Even more exciting is that Dad is coming to visit tomorrow. If I were to guess who would be my first guest from home, it certainly would not have been Dad.

He figured Luther was one of them. It's evidently a serious problem in many vacation areas.

Which Color Wall Looks Best?
