What's your sign?

It was the pillows that caught my eye first. I don't usually look at the furniture in this thrift store. It's overpriced and our house is already filled to capacity. Unless it's something like a ten dollar treadle in working condition, I'm not bringing home any new furniture.
I don't even know why I was in that part of the store -- I think I was looking for my oldest son. But those pillows caught my eye and I stepped closer to see if they were zodiac symbols and if they were mass produced. Because, at that point, I was thinking that they were so quirky someone must've made them.
Then I got a look at the rest of the couch.

I suppose someone could've bought the zodiac fabric and upholstered it herself, but I'm guessing that it came from the factory this way. I would love to see the room it was purchased for, and what else went with it.

That's some fabric! We all like different things huh?! I'm with you, would love to see the rest of the decor in the room and I so want to know what year it was made. It looks newer than the era when we all talked about zodiac signs (which is a bit scary teehee.) Thanks for the smiles.

Happy New Year!

I LOVE how those pillows look on that couch - - - everything all color coordinated and EVERYTHING!

It is unique! Add in a waterfall lamp, and some gold nesting tables... hey with a little creativity one could really rock this!
You're like me, it may not be my taste, but I can still see the potential, too.

I am a Virgo, but no pretty pillows.

Those pillows are certainly attention getters. Not for me but I'm sure were the center piece for someone's home. Very interesting.

Happy New Year.
