Maybe it’s my obsession with keeping things fresh for me, or my obsession with shopping…..but, regardless….this new set design came about after I saw this chair at Target.
I was prancing around Target in my swimsuit (yes, true story) and went over to their outdoor section to take some photos. I spotted this beauty immediately and knew I needed to have her.
Then I looked at the price tag and the love affair ended before it began. It was $500.
There was a sale sign next to it – reduced to $300.
Maura typically buys things on the spot. She sees it, she loves it, she gets it. But for some odd reason, this time around I decided to think about it a little bit. I mean, it is an EXPENSIVE chair and I knew I’d have to build a set around it so I’d be investing more money.
I thought about it for a few days, then decided I’d purchase it. I went back to Target and it was gone. WAHHHH.
I looked online and it was there, but it was still listed at $500. So I walked away.
Could I afford it? Yes. Did I want it? Absolutely. But, I knew in my heart the timing wasn’t right.
About a month later, I was telling an amazing friend of mine about the chair….we were talking about it while I was waiting to photograph the birth of her third child! Yup, she’s in labor and I’m going on and on about this stinking egg chair.
A few weeks after the birth, this sweet friend of mine sent me a Target gift card to help offset the cost of the egg chair.
I AM TRULY BLESSED!
These amazing women in my life treat me so well and I am very humbled and forever thankful for what they do for me.
The chair arrived, and I put it together outside in 95 degree heat and humidity. Finally, the set came together with some privacy screens, a side table with decorations, some fringe, blankets and extra pillows, and the enormous amount of plant-life surrounding everything.
I LOVE IT! It looks absolutely amazing in photos and I certainly enjoy and appreciate this little set.
Here are some photos from one of the first sessions with the chair! It was an investment well made!
