HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Good Afternoon my blogging friends! Today is my birthday. I am so grateful for my life and how God is so good to me. I have had three different types of cancer, the first was thyroid cancer that turned out to be the good kind. (if there is a good kind, of cancer.) The second was colon cancer in which I had to have a colon resection that turned out really well for me. The latest bout was the breast cancer, which I feel has been my hardest battle, I don't know why. So each year I have a birthday , I am truly reminded how lucky and blessed I have been. Our sofas were looking faded and worn, so my hubby being the sweetie he is, decided to buy me new ones for my birthday. I wanted to share my blessings with my friends. I just love the blue gray color of the sofas. It is such a pretty color. This is a contemporary sofa, which is not my usual style, as you all know I am a traditionalist. But when I saw these sofas it was love at first sight! The coffee table we had before was cherry wood and was much too large for this area. I decided to see how the white wicker table would work. I had it originally in my girly loft area. What do you all think? Does it work here? I accept all feedback positive or negative. When we were shopping for the sofas , This rug was part of the floor display. I told my hubby I really like rug, he looked at the sales assistant and said order the rug as well. My hubbie is a real sweetie. a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-H3zCQTHrkiQ/UbSjS_c4DQI/AAAAAAAAFKU/-mksTZZDdlw/s1600/DSCF0185.JPG" imageanchor="1" > This was the vignette that was on the old coffee table in front of our sofa. I had the vignette setting inside a lazy Susan. The lazy Susan was too heavey looking for the wicker so I decided to remove it. The candle stick and the burlap vase are both Ross finds. I had the greenery in my stash of florals. The little dog figurines are yard sale finds. The little dog in the ragged shoe is so cute.
