Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Stuff Portrait Friday: Letter C

I can't believe we don't have a green or St. Patrick's Day theme today. *sigh* Ok, I'll follow the rules and look at the assignment, which is:

SPF is brought to you this week by the letter C:
Your Couch
Your Coat
Your Candles

First off, we have two couches. One, I bought about the time Pickle was born in 1994. That couch has been through hell and has a slip cover on it to cover all the years of wear and tear. It is now in my office/family room and is the depository for laundry (which is never ending in this house). I had moved it in here to cuddle with my honey, but there is never room because of the laundry that rotates in and out just about every day. Here was the couch yesterday:

My front room couch was given to me by my neighbor. She had gotten it years ago from her now ex-inlaws and she could stand it no longer. Great for us, though. It even folds out into a bed.

My coat. That is a hard one for me. I have three different coats. Foley's had a big sale on London Fog coats one year and my mom bought me a lightweight short jacket, a medium length jacket and a warmer coat with lining that can be removed. Then, I have lots to other things in between. I think being a baby of a depression-era baby has made me a packrat, because I like to have multiples of things because you never know when you'll need it. Each of my kids about an average of five jackets and coats. This is our coat closet.

My favorite jacket is a hand-me-down from a friend and I keep this fleece goody in the car to wear at the soccer fields.

And Candles. We have TONS of candles in this house. My dad makes them and gives me more than I can ever use. So, I burn lots of candles. It makes for romantic atmosphere, too. Here is my stash of candles.

We have candles on the fireplace mantle (although one looks like it needs a new one in the votive.)

Here are a few of the many in the bedroom. The colorful pic is Army of Dad as a preschooler with a fish he caught. Cute, huh? My CDs, too.

And, another set of candles in the bedroom. Gotta love my Ringo and AoD's Manatees' ball.

And, one in our front room.

Go check out who all played at Random and Odd. Following the C theme, my life and SPFs are usually about chaos. Did you play?

    LOL...I had to laugh because of all the candles (I have tons too). I also took a picture of my coat closet.

    Happy SPF!

    Hey!! I have that Supertramp CD too!!

    WOW, so many candles. Perhaps that's why I stopped making them... just had way too many!

    Great SPF!

    Someone has a candle fetish!

    We have a ton of coats, too.

    Know what I love about today?

    I've seen that a good chunk of America (not scientifically calculated) has slipcovers on their couches too. This makes me feel much better.

    Happy SPF!
