How can you say no to a granny couch?!
I mean really. It just has some strange appealing quality about it. Paige and I happened upon a home with a lot of things by the street with a sign on the mailbox. The sign bore a single word: Free. We walked around looking at things and finally decided to stuff this moth-ball smelling couch into her blazer. Yes, you read that right. We stuff a full-sized couch into a Chevy Blazer! Paige also picked up a working sewing machine, and I grabbed a sweet gold frame, which I plan on turning into a chalkboard.
We felt a little weird about just taking it...but the sign said free, so we assumed that was literal. We kept the couch in the garage for a bit, but the mothball smell isn't going anywhere. I put it out in the open air before I left for the conference, so hopefully it will be a little better when I get back. I am going to deodorize it with some Arm and Hammer eventually.
Well, that's all for now. I hope all of you would have done the same thing that Paige and I did...bring that free couch home! At least we saved it from the dumpster, right?
