Wrigleyville Recycle

purple sofa in Chicago

One man's trash is another man's...well, trash. I spotted this crushed velvet toss-away in the recycle room of the Park Place Towers condominium building at 655 W Irving Park Rd (Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago). Safe to say, no animals were harmed in the upholstering of this sofa although some interior decorating feathers were no doubt ruffled over its domestic lifespan.

RIP (Rest In Purple) and whose ever apartment this came from, let's only hope the carpet doesn't match the drapes.

Chicago Polar Plunge 2016

Check it:

Think I'll sit this one out...again, for several reasons--lack of swimming skills, unnecessary additional shrinkage, etc.  But Please, do indulge yourself if you care. And if you have the means to donate, even better: It's for the Special Olympics.
