It has only taken me six months to choose and purchase a couch and what did I do? I ordered a couch that is the color - Gecko. Hmmmm. What I want is sweet, cream colored slipcovers, but I still have 12 year olds in the house and now maybe a 10 month old as well. Lucy may come to stay with Nana and Grandpa for a summer stay. The cream colored slipcovers simply don't fit into this picture right now. I would be washing slipcovers far too often. Instead, I ordered this couch.
