Making Choices

   Hi Folks,,

 I know its been awhile but moving after 15 years and downsizing a little has taken more time, thought and decision making than I anticipated.

  Before I show the new items I've chosen , I would like to thank those of you who wrote and asked about how I was doing.. 
As many of you know depression and anxiety is difficult to treat, several medications usually have to be tried in different dose levels before arriving at the proper med in the proper dose....  Then MOVING and the stress it causes all by itself came along and sent me into a bit of a spin.  But I feel leveled out now and realize I'll have my better and not so better days or hours.   I feel very blessed to be one of the people who has responded to meds and therapy , as many with my same illness die of it and are never able to find Contentment or Happiness, again..  I pray for them daily now, since I am aware of the pain they are in..
  Its like the saying goes- you have to walk in those Mocassins to understand.
    The move went well and quickly.   My prior home is leased out now and that makes life in my new home even better.   Knowing she is in appreciative loving hands brings a smile to my face.
  I have absolutely made the choice that I WONT buy anything I dont truly LOVE.
 so now on to the fun stuff,  "a few" of the furniture choices- so far anyway.. More to come over the next week or so and a few I may need your opinions on too, so dont change that dial lol.

::::: These are all internet photos- so they look way different in color due to each sites lighting and photo skills lol.
 its all white , sand or grey beige...  Of course when photographed in my home they will look different then too...:::::

 The liiving room area is 25x19 ..  I think thats right:) close anyway.

PB Pierce sofa-- delivery due date-- 1/27/2014
  This was my favorite because I CANT tolerate sofa's with skirts lol.  I also cant struggle with slipcovers.   I plan to spray it with scotchgard and hope for the best..
  Can ya  go wrong with a white sofa?  Maybe, Maybe not- we shall see.
   2 channel back chairs, Christopher Knight collection.  They are very well made and quite comfortable. Do ya'll remember Chris from the Brady bunch?   Cant believe he's over 50 now- wow, where does the time go.
 its a grey beige tone- very neutral.
1 chair and ottoman  Portfolio Mira- it got super good reviews so I'll give it a try and i its not right, back it goes.
  Guest room bed and nitestands::
  Thats all for now...   I'll be back with more kitchen dining things in a few days..

Thanks for visiting and I appreciate so many of you sticking with me during my silent time..

Tweak It Tuesday over at Brenda's Cozy Little Home 


  1. Love all your selections, Sonny! I love that first chair pictured. The back is so pretty on it. I'm sure you've got a lot going on what with the move and getting yourself organized. Don't let it get to you.

  2. I am glad you are feeling better. It can be a long uphill battle.

    I love the idea of only having things in your home that you love. That is the way it should be!

  3. So glad that you are feeling better and that they have found the right medication. I get a little depressed now and then but try to keep busy.
    I really like all the choices you made on the furniture and I think they will look very well together.
    How fun to get all new things that you really love.
    Have a terrific week.

  4. Sonny, I'm so glad you're doing well and back to blogging. You've been missed. I love all of your choices! I can't wait to see more! ♥

  5. Happy, happy, happy to see you here. Miss the babies in the header. You have the exact couch I am looking for! Where did you find it? Looks like you are getting into the swing of decorating which should perk you up very well. Love you and love to see you smile.

  6. Oh I am thrilled to hear from you and all of your choices look amazing. I can't wait to see them all put together in your new home. Glad you are doing well too. Hugs, Marty

  7. These are all great items Sonny. Can't wait to see it all come together!

  8. Great selections, Sonny. I'll look forward to seeing everything when you get it put together. I know it will look wonderful. You asked me about finding the fabric on the CF chair in my recent post. I think that is an old picture, so they may not make it any more. I love the blue check that you ordered. laurie

  9. Nice new furniture for your pretty new home. So glad you are feeling better.

  10. I love all of your choices and totally agree with you as far as buy only what you really, really love.

    I'm not a blogger, just a follower and have been a follower of your posts for a while now. I'm very happy that you are "in a good place" now and understand full well the cycle of depression. It's not easy to deal with but it can be controlled as you well know. So happy for you!

  11. I swear I looked at that same chair with the lines in the back this morning on Overstock. I've looked at it many time.

  12. Hi Sonny! Oh-I am SOOO happy to see you here. Wonderful, wonderful furniture choices. I love everything. I can't wait to see your home come together and I am glad your other place is rented now.

    On another note, I am so glad that you found meds that work for you. I have a friend and nothing has worked for her...or she is not willing to take what does work. I feel helpless when she is down because you just can't "cheer up" a person that suffers from depression. You are in my prayers tonight, Sonny. Blessings- xo Diana

  13. I don't think that you can ever go wrong with a white sofa. Sonny, I know first hand how very stressful moving can be. I don't usually get depressed, but I have gone through a bit of it since I have moved. What I have learned is to be kind to yourself and eventually you will find your new rhythm.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  15. I can not begin to tell you how happy I was when I saw you had posted.

    a break. I need to seek help with my depression because to hard to do
    It alone

    Can't wait to see it in your new home

  17. Oh, so happy for you! Getting back to blogging is good, isn't it? I was away for awhile and love being back. I do agree, it's the things you really love that you want surrounding you! Have a wondeful day, Sonny~

  18. Great selections and nice to meet you :-)

  19. Hi Sonny! I've missed you and I'm glad to see you're feeling better and glad your meds are working for you.
    No I love all of your pretty new purchases and I can't wait to see you decorating your new home!
    Thanks for popping in to see me and I treasure your friendship.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  20. I'm so happy to hear you are feeling day at a time (or more like two steps forward, one back, three forward, etc.)

    I could have picked these pieces out myself...we have the same taste. Beautiful! :)


  21. Hi Sonny,
    so happy to see you are back, I have been wondering about you, and was
    just thinking the other day maybe
    I should write her and she if she is okay, but then I know that sometimes people just outgrow blogging, as it met a need at one time, and they no longer want to do it, so you also
    don't want people to feel pressured either.
    My favs are that white bedroom set and those channel back chairs, all
    gorgeous, can't wait to see the rooms when you finish, cause I know they will look awesome.
    Glad your old home is in good hands, that is a nice blessing to know......I remember when we left our first home, it went to a young married couple as their first home and they just loved it........
    so that made us happy too.
    Am so glad you are doing well hon,
    and thank you for asking me to be on linked in, but I don't even know what it is and never accept
    them no matter who send them, so don't be offended.........but I definitely want to stay in touch
    with you. Maybe we can email when you aren't posting. You know this post did not come up on my blog roll for some reason, I came over because of the linked in notice I got.......don't know what goes on with that blog roll at times, it is wierd............

    Well, glad life is looking good for you.........going good here too.

    Love and Blessings, Nellie

  22. Just stopping by to see how you are doing. Thinking about you. xo

  23. I am wonder to read your every single blog post. It was really very informative. thanks for sharing & I will visit your blog again. white noise app

  24. Hi Sonny! I'm just checking in on you. I know you must be busy getting all settled in your new home. I'll be anxiously waiting to see inside!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  25. So glad you are feeling better.
    We just moved out of a home of 40 years and it was the hardest work I've ever done. I got rid of so much...and feel great to have it gone.:)
    We are still working onjavascript:void(0) finding places for the things I wanted to keep....but, it's coming together.

  26. Sonny, have you settled into your new home? I'm looking forward to seeing pix of what you've done. Hope you are doing well. Have a good weekend. laurie


Ya'll Come Back Now, Ya Hear :-)
Hugs and Smiles
