Photo Shoot - My Favorite Piece of Furniture

Show us your favorite piece of furniture.

This is my throne! When you are disabled the majority of your time is spent sitting and sleeping. My bed is a sleep number bed with a feather mattress topper. My bones still get sore from pressure so I'll soon be adding an egg crate pad (memory foam was too hard). Just visualize the princess and the pea. From there I have a simple computer chair that I cannot use ergonomically due to my angle of typing. I tend to lean on one arm and get sore. Then there is my recliner that automatically reclines, heats and massages. So like Goldilocks, my bed is too hard, my blog chair doesn't fit, but my recliner is just right!

If I'm not sleeping or on the computer I can be found in my recliner. Above me is our daughter's as little girls and as women. On the shelf is our parent's and grandparent's on their wedding day. I've added my wedding picture and our girl's wedding pictures in sepia. Our four grandson's are everywhere else. Do you see a handle to the dining room? It's actually a sideways oak toilet paper holder. That clever man of mine! (click for better close up)

I put my recliner in a location that works best for hours of sitting. I can see Dave, my view, a toasty fire and my TV, perfectly. When Dave is at home I go outside when it's not too cold. Do I get lonely when Dave is at work? I'm never alone...


I have my girl's!

UPDATE:

Tammy's Warriors have raised over $1300 for the Sacramento ALS Walk. GO WARRIORS! I'm making a list of virtual walkers to take with me on Oct. 25th. So that we can all be together! We will have virtual walkers from all over the world thanks to bloggers. Special thanks to Annie, Chasity and Debbie for all of your hard work. Thank you!

Tammy,
Your special recliner does look just right. I love how you positioned it so you can enjoy all the beauty and things you love. The pictures of "the girls" in your lap is just too sweet.

Way to go Warriors! That is amazing, you should feel very proud and loved.

XXXXXXX

Genuine Gem said...

completely awesome on the fundraising!!
I'm jealous of your chair...that looks wonderful! I have no windows in my living room and on days where I sit all day, I feel like I'm in a tomb.I hate it.
You got one sweet spot!

Hi Tammy :)

Is there anything better for the mood or the soul then curling up with a kitty?:) That is such a cute picture, it really made me smile. Thanks for playing sweetie, I have really been enjoying your posts!

Hug, Carly

I just don't know if I can wait till the spring to get there. (You really ARE an A-hole, ya know)

The photos are not enough...I need to be IN them. When I come, can I sit in your chair? Can I pet your furries? (Oh crap, that came out wrong)

Well you know what I mean.

Love that handle Dave made ya.

Love and hugs,
Nancy

Looks so comfortable, and I love that stove!

My husband doesn't understand how our kitty cat (which we've only had 3 months) can bring me such joy.

Congrats on raising funds for ALS.

Hi Tammy, Love your recliner! AND the company that joins you there:)

Giggles said...

There is such comfort is seeing where a friend lives and ambles around. Thanks for sharing this cozy side of your life! I have two similar wall sconces like yours, with round purple candles!

Congratulations on all the funds you raised. Good job!

Hugs Sherrie

Your home is lovely and that chair looks so comfy and cozy - particularly with that adorable addition in your lap! :) Am looking forward to news of your walk - am so glad I can be a part of it, even if from a distance. You are an inspiration and I know you'll be a star on Oct. 25th! xoxox
