some women are jewelry people.
i am not.
in fact all of my jewelry comes from the clearance bin at target.
which means it's plastic or wood.
don't get me wrong, i've bought some cute jewelry at target.
but i have never bought fancy jewelry nor have i received fancy jewelry, apart from my engagement ring.
i'm cool with it bc i probably wouldn't wear it anyway.
jewelry is fussy and not comfortable, so no complaints.
i think that affords me a leather sofa.
i mean a leather sofa is one, really fancy ring.
or one fancy necklace.
or a SUPER fancy watch.
or a thousand bags of fancy marshmallows.
the leather delusion continues....
one thing i have discovered since this leather chicanery began..
at one time i thought no way could you have a room with more than one, maybe 2 pieces of leather...tops.
but i was wrong about that..
i DO think however that the room needs to be sizeable.
which means my living room could not handle the heaviness of more than one piece of leather.
it's a brass and leather klismos chair.
which i am also accepting in lieu of jewelry.
i would not turn down any color leather sofa if it were the right shape and size.
but if i could CHOOSE a color...it would be black.
buttery soft, faded to a soft silver in places...black.
or this one in black...
don't get me wrong..this color is very nice.
but i just think black is better (that's what she said).
i think you can do more with black (that's what he said).
i think it can go many ways...fit many whims of your decor flightiness.
but i'd TAKE any color and make it work.
such is the mindset of a craigslist shopper.
this one will do nicely too with it's PERFECT black leather condition.
that means i can age it myself. with spills and cat pee and kid vomit.
i'll take it with this coffee table..
and this mirror...
that's a good start.
and christmas is coming and just before that is my birthday.
so many opportunities for you to practice good logic.
