I am super excited to introduce my first guest on my new series, "Guess who's dropping in for coffee?" Meet Laurie Cooper of Charleston Revisions. She owns my favorite mid-century store in Charleston. Laurie always introduced me to people as her "first customer". It makes us chuckle when we share our story.

I'm so glad I stumbled across this challenge and thank you to Linda at Calling it Home for creating such a a great event! Well, here you can see where it all started, week 1-5. But enough for the delay, here it is, drumroll please

We sold our custom sectional. Yes, as in the one below. Last spring my husband decided to give our porch a major cleaning and removed all the furniture outside. He left it in the rain and it took the paint off and messed up the sectional. So, this spring, he was about to do the same
