Plumber is currently at the house fixing the leak in my bathroom.  Sadly, he had to remove tile in the shower area, and there is no tile that matches what is currently there.  My bathroom is completely covered with tile, the walls are covered from floor to ceiling!   Ed and I are off to Home Depot when I get home from work to pick out some tile that will go with the tile on the walls.  I was hoping that they could break through the drywall behind the pipes instead of having to remove the tile work, but unfortunately, it is in the closet, and it is a tight and dark space that is difficult to work in, so instead, they had to bust through the tiles.  Hopefully we can pick out something and have it replaced quickly.  I really miss my bathroom!

I do have good news to report though....Ed was able to get the incredibly large sofa into our place and its looks great!  Its so nice to have a sofa and loveseat in the living room.  We had been living without one for almost 2 years!  Our place reminded me more of Archie  Bunker's home, where there was one chair for Archie and another one for Edith.  Now we can have people over and not worry about pulling out a chair from another room.

 The loveseat has a place of honor underneath Moob's portrait!  We moved the bookcase behind the sofa to make room for this.

Sofa is now the main seating area when we are watching TV, but Ed tends to hog it!  But he's enjoying stretching out while watching football, and I take it over when watching my shows.

The chairs have been moved behind the sofa to form a small reading area.  Sadly, the leather chair is showing damage from Moob's handiwork.  I have some tape over the areas where he scratches.  I did find an interesting video on YouTube about fixing leather furniture damaged by cats.  Need to find that leather cleaner.  Our damage isn't as bad as what is on the video!

Over the weekend, we moved the bikes to the storage area (since we probably won't be riding much in the coming months), and it definitely helps to open up the space even more.  So far I'm liking the new setup.  Now I'm contemplating putting the red rug in the living room and moving the blue and white one back to my dressing room.  Its fun to switch up things!

Thanks Debra,
I'll be happy when I get my bathroom back!

The sofas are a definite improvement to the living room! Moob enjoys laying on the arms of the sofa.

You conquered the couch!!! YES!!
I am so impressed by Moob's portrait. Who painted that!

I really like your setup, Suzy. You have a nice space goin on there, it's colorful and clean just like I like it ;) Very stylish with splashes of kitsch in just the right places ;) Moob's portrait! LOL!

Thanks! The portrait of Moob was done by Ed's cousin who is an artist. It was a special commission by Ed's mom for his birthday. If I had my way there would be a lot more kitsch...but I live with someone who is not a fan of I sneak it in where I can!

Your room looks great. I love Moob's portrait and thanks for finding that video about fixing cat scratches on leather. I hate having people in my house working on things! Good luck with the rest!

The tile guy is coming today at 1 to finish up the bathroom! I'm very excited to have my shower back!

That video on fixing cat scratches is amazing! I have to get a hold of the leather cleaner they used. It really covered up the scratches nicely!
