Pull Up A Chair. . .

On Crooked Creektt,
"Mr. Ed" and I enjoy entertaining in our 1970's Ranch Style Home!



So~o~o. . .
when our Associate Pastor recently phoned 
to inquire if we would lead a Small Group Study. . .
we said, "Yes".

Knowing ahead of time 
that we are signed up to accommodate eight adults, 
meant one thing On Crooked Creektt.

Time for a re~arrange!!!



Earlier this Spring,
"Mr. Ed" was gifted with a 'hand~me~down' recliner
from our son and daughter~in~law as they updated with new furnishings!

With our previous furniture arrangement,
we could comfortably seat six adults for free~flowing conversation.


Three adults on the couch,
two at this seating area and one adult for the recliner, equals six.



Definitely time for a furniture shuffle
to make accommodations for two more seating spaces.

While "Mr. Ed" aided a neighbor with fence repair,
I moved the sewing machine cabinet,
repositioned the chairs to center the area 
and brought over the vintage four~drawer dresser.



Then, after arranging a new vignette atop the dresser. . .







I moved the vintage sewing machine cabinet
to the opposite side of the couch where the dresser formerly sat.



I began creating a new vignette, 
refreshing this tabletop with a design 
that would span from Summer~to~Autumn.







Not to waste a minute of "Mr. Ed's" absence,
I descended to the lower level and retrieved this chair from Studio One.



An amazing thrifty $30 find 
from our Annual Trout Fishing Trip to Bennett Spring,
I have always wanted to place this chair in the Living Room!



This vintage chair is upholstered in a soft, 
faded gold upholstery and compliments the adjacent seating area.
The hues of the chairs duplicated in this accent pillow
bring about a cohesive appeal.



Soft golds are abundant throughout the decor
in On Crooked Creektt's Living Room, 
making the addition of the chair pleasing to the eye.

Although, you only count seating for seven adults. . .
I left ample space between the seating area and the newly included seat.



As our Small Group guests begin to arrive
there's only one thing left to do. . .
                                                                   pull up a chair!


Until next time. . .



On Crooked Creektt will be joining

Looks so nice, Pat! What fun to have a Bible Study at your house. I had a ladies' Bible Study years ago. We had so many ladies, they were even sitting up the stairs! :)

I tried to leave a comment on your Google+ again....but.....it wouldn't work.
Hoping you can get your name in your comments linked back to your blog.
I know it's been such a hassle for you...so sorry.
Your room looks so nice.
That is one thing we will miss when we leave this olden house.
I can seat 16 in our large living room without moving anything....I'm not sure yet how many we might seat in the Summer House...but, I'll be so thrilled to be there, I'll put pillows on the floor if need be...hahhaa,.
Have a blessed and happy Sunday.

Great rearranging, and with lots of cozy chairs. I'll bet they want to meet at your place again, next time.
