Well, I have been a little lax with the old bloggity blog of late, but I haven't abandoned it yet. I just haven't had the money or inclination to visit Etsy.com much for inspiration. However, I noticed it's May and that's anniversary month which means--time for the annual Red Couch search (which I always find energizing)!
For those who don't know, I look up red couches for sale on Etsy every year in the month of May which is the anniversary month for my blog. The red couch is in honor of the lovely red couch at the top of my blog layout, and for the red couch in my blog logo which you can see on the right side of your screen (feel free to add my button to your blog/site). I also only include three items in my search because when I first started writing this blog, I used to only include three items per post, so it's kind of a nod to the good ol' days I suppose.
The search this year was a short one, but I found possibly the three best red couches TO DATE! Enjoy my friends:
Shop: Heaven Antiques
Let's start small with a love seat. I would take this piece of furniture home with me RIGHT NOW if I had the cash to spare etc. etc. I do so love furniture but I hate being poor. Poo.
VELVET PATCH - chesterfield patchwork sofa
Shop: Name Design Studio
With the exception of my very first Red Couch post, it seems that I have always come across a patchwork couch in my search. Without fail. So, perhaps I should make it a point to always include one patchwork piece in my future Red Couch searches, eh? [Edit: I just looked back at my previous anniversary posts and realized that the patchwork couches I have found, have all been from Name Design Studio--HA! So that explains why I keep finding new ones to post every year--because they keep making incredible reddish patchwork couches!]
Anyway! I love the patchwork look, especially when it doesn't look frumpy because god knows some patchwork just looks frumpy--this does not! It looks rich and colorful and oh so soft with the velvet. Yum. I will own a patchwork couch one day. *shakes fist at the sky*

Honestly, when I found this couch on my search, in my head, I had a vision of myself pointing at this couch, jumping up and down emphatically, saying something to the effect of, "I WANT THIS COUCH!" So, yeah. I am in love with this couch.
I'm in love with all the couches I found tonight in fact. :) Well, here's to being re-energized and hopefully more productive with my blog in the upcoming months. Wish me luck and thanks for reading, as always!
