Meet Karl

I have a much-overdue post for you!  In my last media den update ((months ago!) I mentioned that DH and I were busy clearing out the room to make room for the the newest IKEA member of the family: a Karlstad sofa.  It took us a long time to decide on the perfect sofa for the space, but we just couldn’t resist Karl’s classic good looks and super-comfy cushions.  Once we had the room cleared out enough, DH took a quick trip to IKEA without us.  I was sad to miss a trip to IKEA, believe me, but after some extensive measuring we figured out that the only way the sofa would fit into our CR-V was if there was nothing else in the car.  So Sydney and I stayed behind, and DH brought home the Karl:

  1. I miss sofa forts. When I was little I used to build them by tying blankets to the gingerbready parts of a Victorian style wicker settee set my mom had, and I broke them all off. My dad glued them back together with scraps of screen molding holding everything together from inside.
