Have you ever seen The Essentials on TCM?
Its current hosts, Robert Osborne + Drew Barrymore,
sit opposite each other in a pair of groovy, red leather chairs . . .
. . . about which I am crazily obsessed.
I failed when I searched for a photo of the set
+ those fabulous red chairs, to share with the class (darn!),
but this should give you an idea of their awesomeness:
I KNOW. Swoon-worthy!
More about them + my obsession in just a sec.
FYI: The Essentials is a weekly film showcase,
airing on TCM on Saturday nights at 7 p.m. CST.
It spotlights a specific classic movie
+ contains a special introduction + post-movie discussion.
I couldn’t love it more.

But back to
my obsessions the chairs.
I spied this red leather beauty — the Mason — on World Market’s website,
when I was enjoying a bit of online shopping, way back in October.
I blogged about said-same, ’cause that’s how I roll:

Anyway, I had another look-see just this past week,
+ the Mason is on sale for $279.99, down from an original $399.99!
Sure, there’s also a pesky $80 shipping surcharge
(per chair!!?? — I s’poze!!??) . . .
. . . but I thought maybe I could locate a couple
in one of World Market’s stores in the Chicagoland area,
shove them inside my Volvo wagon + save myself $160.
It’s worth a try, no?
Just thinking about having a pair of red leather chairs
makes me just as happy as can be, + personally, I think I deserve them!
That’s a LOT of pillows to sew (lil’ mama’s source of income),
+ I’m really not sure if I should splurge!
. . . STAY TUNED!
