On Tuesday I wrote about how I am working on my apartment to make it more comfy for me.

I started by arduously finding a new place for my record player.

There are a lot of other things I need to do, but I thought I would share some small things I am doing or have done.


This is the chair where I spend a lot of my time.

I have had this chair and its ottoman for quite a while and I hope to replace it with a recliner. (That will be a large change)

There were definitely some changes that I needed to make for the chair to work better for me. 

I know that the weather is warming up, but I get cold in the air conditioning so I like to have a nice throw.

The pillow is vintage needlepoint.

I found this pillow on Etsy and it is very similar to mine.

Does anyone else have a problem with wandering remote controls and cell phones?

I know that I live alone, but it feels like I waste a lot of time looking for them.

They slip down between the cushions and fall under the chair. 

I decided I needed something to corral them and found this on Amazon.

I can also use it for pens, an extra pair of reading glasses, and a notebook.

My pretty notebooks come from Amazon too. I use a lot of these notebooks.

Now that I am nice and comfy this will definitely be my reading corner and I will start sharing what I am reading with you.

Have a great day and I would love for you to check out my Etsy shop where I sell vintage and antique finds along with digital downloads of beautiful antique artwork.

  1. Your chair looks very comfy and perfect for reading. The addition of the arm chair caddy is perfect. I followed your link and added one to my cart for the arm of my sofa/couch. I, too have wandering remotes, phone, etc. My sweet dog, Cooper will accidentally step on a remote and change the channel on the TV. LOL BTW, that throw is beautiful - yummy colors.
    Enjoy your day!

  2. I love your new chair additions. Looks like a comfy place to relax and read. Happy Weekend. Hugs. Kris

  3. How funny you wrote this! I have been looking for an armchair remote holder. I'll go check this one out and see if it's the right size. I did some changing around too, and the little stand where I DID put my remotes, is no longer there, so now I have nowhere to put them.. I also lose my pen and notebook, so would be nice to have a place to put them. I also love your throw. I keep one close by on my ottoman for times I feel a chill. Trouble is, if I lay it anywhere, my cats decide I put it there for a bed! Love what you're doing to make your apartment cozy! Marilyn

  4. You have everything you need right at your fingertips, I love it. That blanket is dreamy. I just love the colors.
