In Which Goldilocks Gets a Chair of Her Own

Except I don't actually have gold locks, and I didn't break & enter to try out different chairs. Dr. M called me on his way home from school & asked if I wanted him to stop & pick up the chair we'd decided to get. Of course I said yes - no more shopping for me! So I went from this...


To this (with my wigwam as a chair cover)...


To our first new piece of furniture since 1997!


Oh! Oh! And I didn't even notice in the store - it's a recliner too!




So even though I didn't really want a recliner, I have one & I'm sitting in it right now with my feet up & I love it. Sweet!

Now I'm going to see how it works as a crochet chair...

  1. I miss my recliners. My apartment is too small to fit one but you look fine in yours. I loved mine. It was a Lane Recliner.

  2. We both have recliners and we love them. I knit while in the recliner all the time so I'm sure you can crochet in one. Lovely chair.

    1. I have a great easy chair with ottoman that I have bolstered (it was butt sprung) and I am very happy in it. Bug is SO comfortable in her chair, and I am SO happy!

  4. Once you've reclined, there's no going back. Enjoy your new friend.

  8. I like your new chair very much. Mostly I like that it IS a recliner, but DOESN'T look like a recliner. They are great to have when you're sick, too, and can't breath. Great for sleeping. We keep talking about getting one, but I don't like the way they look. Love the style of yours. I'm very picky. I need to start looking.

  9. I love that it has legs and a concealed reclining mechanism! It is a great style, and has both stages of recline, so she can even lean all the way back if needed!
