Pièce de résistance

Definition:    the outstanding item (the prize piece or main exhibit) in a collection
  Synonyms: collector's item, showpiece
Part 1:  Let me start by saying God is good, I mean really good to the Culpeppers, we just had a bit of a trying week last week-

Part 2 of this story:  So let me mom got a dressing table and chair for the tink-she was going to have the chair recovered and "it was going to be so cute when she got a bit older".
Last week was a FIASCO in our house I am talking fires, viruses, Daddy out of town checking on name it-we had it...and somehow in dropping off our old kitchen table (because we have a new one) we ended up with the dressing table chair early.
Well we are proof that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, two babies with stomach bugs thought this new chair was heaven on earth.  Its the perfect place and size for a Murphy or a Madden-the only problem is whoever gets there first refuses to move-we are working on "sharing" this week.
Since the moment it arrived eighties floral fabric and all it has made its new home in our den front and center.  Nice, right?  Now the babies fight over who gets to sit on this throne and enjoy its beauty and elegance while reading or watching whatever happens to be on Sprout. Below are some pictures of our new chair and all of its glory.

Also, there are a few pics of my little elephants (SCRATCH THAT) big ferocious tough elephants, I mean Murphy doesn't even have a bow on this year.  I hope we didnt scare the neighbors, by the way, I do think our costume selection could have possibly affected the election....I'm just saying....

I'm so sorry you had a bad week. I hope all is better now. I love the chair. Once it's recovered, it will be perfect and she will love it forever.

That was a tough week. Love the pics, they definitely influenced the elections. I like the chair just where it is!
