Relaxing



I like to read in a comfy, soft and cozy place. For Christmas I got this from my sister. I saw it called a "husband" once, so that is what we call it.

It's covered in a soft, fur-like fabric. The pillow is the perfect combination of soft support. Placed against the arm of the couch, it transforms it into the perfect chaise. A simple pleasure, to be sure!

Make sure to visit Dayle today for Simple Pleasures Thursday!

Have a wonderful day!

In college days, we all had these in our dorm rooms and they were great for using the daybed as a place to study. I think mine was corduroy but I imainge this fur feels divine!

this looks really comfy...and interesting that it's called a husband. I wonder why.

Love it! In my case "husband" is a suitable word, since I lean heavily on mine for so many things. :) Great post, and always great to see you here.

It certainly does look cozy! Kind of like a husband...

Vee said...

Oh! Forgot to say how cozy your header looks, too.

Oh goodness! I was JUST saying that I needed a "husband" for my bedroom.

Of that sort, I mean. We have an iron bed, and Dayle's recent simple pleasure made me want to read in bed. Hence, I need the husband.

Love your simple pleasure!

How wonderful! I have a brown furry husband (as I'm sure many others out there do) which I keep on my bed (as I'm sure many others out there do). I've leaned on him many times; and although he's given support and comfort, so far he's been a lousy provider. Mind you, he's also never offered his unsolicited opinion on anything or grumbled about the color I've painted the living room. So I guess I'll keep him.

I like your present. Every woman should have a "Best Man" for a husband. I posted a thank you today for your sweet gift. I love it!

I was thinking the other day how much I need one of those. Glad you have one!

That does look like a good idea. I've never seen them over here in UK. A great simple pleasure.

Give me a cup of coffee and a good book and I might never get up.

I had those type pillows for years...corduroy...to read in bed. They are great, the only problem was where to store them that was handy to the bed. This make me kind of miss mine!

I LOVE your comfy looking "husband" pillow! I am going to look for a furry one like yours that I can keep on my sofa. Thanks for your nice comment on my SP post.
