Damn Avocado

Its official; craigslist hates me.

I've been on the hunt for a used sofa, with a touch of razzle-dazzle, for the past few weeks and all craigslist has to offer are bulgy leather couches...and that makes me vomit a little in my mouth. But thanks to Project Runway, every time I think of the word, "leather" I turned into season 5 alum Stella Zotis and can.not.stop.saying "leatha". 


Why can't I just find a sofa like this for under 300 dollahs?

Not only is it almost as long as Robert Wadlow**, but I just love that damn avocado color!

Perhaps I'll get lucky tomorrow as I will brave through the Saturday morning crowds and crash some yard sales for some interesting loot. This looong weekend will also include helping my in-laws move into their newly renovated home (!!!) and squeezing in some kite flying time.

What's everyone else doing this weekend? Any travel plans or bbq-ing on the agenda?

  1. When it comes to cosigns I know a thing or two... Loving that couch. I'll keep my eyes peeled as well! :)

  2. I know how you feel. It seems like once in a life time that I find a decently priced item that I am looking for on there! How awesome would it be to find a sofa like that!!! And the avocado color is awesome! Good luck in your search!

  3. awww.. so pretty! I'm wanting a new couch too, but man couch these days are expensive! LUCKY HUNTING THOUGH!! :)

  4. Good luck with your yard saling! (and Craigslisting... surely your perfect couch is out there somewhere)

    We took three extra days off of work this weekend so we have six full days to work on house projects, mainly landscaping. It's been pretty productive so far. I'm totally not wanting to go back to work though. :(

  5. That couch is a dream!!! May I just say that I will DIE of jealousy when you land the perfect sofa? I think I start breathing heavy whenever I see photos of your awesome house. Even though we bought a couch last year, I still look at couches online all the time. I'm in love with the idea of a velvet tufted couch in charcoal gray or a funky color like blue or yellow. Can't wait to see what you find!!

  6. i've been couch hunting for years now. it's oddly similar to finding one's soul mate. i've got a great couch now, which i love very very much...but is it the perfect couch for me? is it the one i want to spend the rest of my life with? the one that will be there to comfort me on those cold and lonely nights? should i feel guilty pursuing craigslist for something else?
