A BIG Surprise!

 While shopping in Home Goods with my mom last week I came across this fabulous chair! I've been wanting to get a new chair for my living room to replace the rocker I had, and when I saw this one it was love at first sight!! Now on to the big surprise, my mom bought the chair for me as an early birthday present:) My birthday isn't for another 3 months! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU MOM xoxoxo.


 Now a new chair needs a new pillow to go with it right!?! I found this one in HG too for only $16.99!






  Here's a before with the rocking chair. I have plans for this chair if I am able to convert it. Stay tuned for that one.

                           So much better!!                     

          Thank you mom I LOVE my new chair!
                           Love you, Martina

I adore going to Home Goods even when I walk out with nothing purchased. It just makes me feel good to be in there. I always wish those chairs were comfortable, but they certainly are pretty to look at.

Your corner is much improved. I have not been in Home Goods for several weeks, and I never seem to find things as pretty as the chair and pillow!

Andrea said...

What an amazing find! You have one heck of a mother.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Absolutely perfect...and it means so much more since it was a gift from your Mom. The nearest Home Goods is a 90 minute drive so I don't get there too often...but what a great find. Enjoy just looking at it!

Lori said...

so perfect with the little table too! Yay for Moms and birthdays.

I ♥ your new chair, Martina. It just accents that little cupboard above it so well. The nearest HG is an hour away and I haven't visited for a while. Of course, I never buy furniture there (wonder why...) but the accessories are always something I look at. Cute pillow to go w/your early b-day gift. :-)
