Went an auction and looked around. We bought 2 comfy chairs for the living-room, DH bought tons of linens/towels and comforters (1) and then I saw a cute couch I really wanted but figured it would go too high. It's all stuffy and blue (matching the chairs) with a cute wooden back that is all fancy carved.

Then a bunch get put in the camper for camping season. The bird.. he gets 1
