~I have to let you go........~

Dear beautiful beautiful ottoman:
This is difficult for me to write because I love you so much.
You would make a lovely addition to our home, although my husband doesn't have the same amount of love for you that I do.
I am sorry, I know that hurts.
I can see us spending many nights together by the fire watching Divine Design.
Unfortunately I have to let you go.
My husband doesn't like your legs, and thinks you are a little girly
(shocking because I thought he liked girls!)

You will find someone else though.
I hope your feelings aren't hurt.
This is going to be a difficult day for me to get through.
Many tears will be shed.
I hope you have a wonderful life with someone else.

Angie said...

That's too bad- she's gorgeous!! I am glad though to hear it's only the ottoman- from the title I thought I was going to have to live with out My Sweet Savannah and that was just a little to much to handle this morning! ;)

Melaine Thompson said...

Danielle, No, I don't own it. It's from a store called Gatherings. She has a blog on my side bar if you are interested!

Thanks so Much!

Melaine Thompson said...

I agree, love that ottoman!!
Sorry it does not agree with your hubby though.

haleys cottage said...

Girly! I think it would be perfect!

KarenSue said...

I know how you feel. Sometimes we just have to let go. You will be fine-something will come along and you will forget her. It's ok to grieve.

Jen said...

Oh no! It's so pretty though.

Can I confess something? I'm just glad I'm not the only one out there whose husband has an opinion on home decor! lol

Steph said... husband never really has an opinion on the decor...just on the price tags! :)

Cheri Peoples said...

That is a beautiful piece.
Just checking in with everyone and to give an update.
I have a new party starting- Wed Sept 2. So each week I will have the Knock Off Knock Out party on Mondays and the Holiday/Seasonal party on Wed. I hope you come for a visit.
New buttons to grab as well.
Its So Very Cheri

Judy said...

I don't think so....too bad husband the ottoman stays! Classic style with a very classic fabric. He will get use to it!

I gave you a little shout out today on my blog. I so admire your decorating talents. I basically have none, I'm finding, but I love to come over here and pretend.


Farmgirl Paints said...

She was beautiful. I can see why you're sad to say goodbye. I'm sure my husband would have the same thoughts:)

Elizabeth (blue clear sky) said...

It's a classic for sure. Hope you find another you luv as much.

Maxine said...

Yes is it beautiful!!Some one will love to have it!

Velvet and Linen said...

Oh I can't tell you how many times I have had to say goodbye to a beautiful piece because Steve didn't like it. I have come to realize that I must choose my battles and ultimately I would rather say goodbye to an ottoman than say goodbye to Steve! We are celebrating our 22nd Anniversary today, so I guess it's working so far.

Hi Melaine,
I just read this post after not hearing back from you in our e-mail exchange. I am so sad you decided against the ottoman. It is a stunner in person. If there is anyone out there who might be interested, it is still available (along with many other gorgeous pieces I will be posting about soon)! Thanks.

She would look fab over here! Of course she might get apple juice spilled on her or some wild blonde boy would use her as a trampoline.

Artsy Fartsy Junkin Finds said...

NO, you have to keep it, she is girly and great. I love everything aobut it, I would love to have it!! The Men..they never get it!! Tootles, Janna

MODERN Prairie Girl said...

I have some items that are accused of being too girly by my loving spouse as hard to say good-bye. Maybe you could give it to a friend and visit it once in awhile :)
