Look at the col­or­ful char­ac­ters I was hang­ing with at the La-Z-Boy booth at the Blogher13 con­fer­ence last week in Chicago.  The La-Z-Boys!

I believe the point was to show­case the con­tem­po­rary and fresh new fab­rics and designs of La-Z-Boy fur­ni­ture. This is not your father’s La-Z-Boy.

The nice folks there are giv­ing blog­gers a chance to win $5,000 of their fur­ni­ture. So here goes. Noth­ing ven­tured, noth­ing gained. Squeaky wheel gets the grease. Ask and ye shall receive.

Please, La-Z-Boy, please send me this Arden chair. I’m still shop­ping for the rest of my $5,000 in fur­ni­ture, so I will let you know. But I wanted you to get a heads up that this is the one I want first.



It’s not for me, of course. Sophie and Sarah asked for it. I’m self­less that way.

I had my Mother’s Day break­fast out­side this morn­ing in the potager. My gar­den­ing com­pan­ion was one of my Papil­lon babies, Sophie. The com­pany was charm­ing and the view was beautiful.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.
