They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To...

Man, I'm showing my age when I say stuff like that. But it's so true.

I have my parents vintage Boston rocker. I love it!
I have a new rocker my sweet hubs bought for me and there is no comparison as far as comfort goes. The old one contours to the body so much better.
Insert "they don't make 'em like they used to" here.

Next, I needed to order a cushion set for it. I hopped on old faithful JCP site and found a set with just the color I was looking for. "Original" price stated 80 bucks but they were having a 40% of "sale." So I ordered the set.

Well, the tufted cushions (especially the seat cushion) were so sparsely stuffed. It didn't feel cushiony at all. I hoped it would feel like I was sitting on a cloud. Instead it felt like I was sitting a sparsely stuffed cushion. What's even more frustrating the stock photos and the customer photos from a few years back looked fully stuffed.

Oh well, I'm going to keep them anyway.

I guess the longer you've been on the planet, the more you complain about the way things used to be.
I totally get that now.

Happy Monday.

Knowing your sewing skills, I can see you opening up the cushion and shoving in some more stuffing. Oh and you are very very right.....NOTHING is made like it used to be :(

Maureen, I definitely thought about it. But it kind of ticks me off that I would have to though. I'm showing my old age again! ((giggle))

I've always loved seeing pics of your home... love this sitting area too!
Hope you and the bookend are doing well, Goob! Just a couple more years and I can retire finally. We are thinking about selling everything and buying an RV. Crazy, huh! <3
