Happy new year, Sam.
We LOVE our new chair and ottoman (it's the Ottoman Empire) -

thank you,

Blackbird







Ms. Blackbird

You are excellent. I am so pleased that you are enjoying the pieces and even more pleased that you took the time to let me know! I do hope your family and close allies recognize you are the fair and rightful Empress of the Ottoman Empire.

I bow to you and wish you a happy 2007

Sam

bb, we are related in some alternate universe. for years, we had a giant ottoman that we called the Ottoman Empire, to distinguish it from all the smaller ottomans (-men?) we had.

AND i was just telling my mom how much i loved your chair-and-a-half and that it would be perfect for this empty corner of my living room.

Okay, I'd just like to point out that I was the first one to call you Queen of the Ottoman (Empire).
Empress of the new ottoman empre???? What on Earth...

I'm swooning over the fact that you sent a thank you note to the salesman. Manners like that should not go unrewarded!
