Which one are you?

Which one are you?

Leather chair- $20 at half off Saturday
Fabric Vintage Chair- $10 at half off Saturday

I’m gonna hope by now, that if you have been reading this blog for a bit, then you know which chair, both great in their own rights, that I chose.

If you picked correctly right away, then you know me better than I know me.

Because clearly, I’m the one that’s been loved and that has character and quirks and is really comfy- but sometimes I think I should be wanting the shiny and new and leather and impressive one (the one on the left). So that’s what I did. I picked that one first. I took the tag off and was gonna buy it, and then did a little soul searching. Did I really want that one? Or was I trying to be impressive to God knows who? It maybe impressive with its stateliness, but I like a little more ‘come sit on me and everything will be alright, I’ve been doing this for awhile’ kinda chair. A chair with experience.

So I put the tag happily back, and with a peace in my soul, removed the tag from the other chair (coincidentally saving me $10), and bought that one.

Obviously, I’m not just talking about the chair, I’m talking about life. The goal doesn’t always have to be the shiny new item, and ‘making it’ doesn’t mean possessing these things. If you like old and used and comfy, then go with it, and be happy.

So I did, and now she sits with two throw pillows purchased in past years sitting stop her, making her even more comfy, and pretty, the best combination.

I’m sure that leather one will find a happy home somewhere, but not with me.

And if its with you- that’s fine. If that’s what you want 🙂

Happy thrifting and living…
-Jaime ❤

    I like your “live and let live” attitude . . . and the chair you chose!
