I got a vintage sofa professionally recovered. I sourced the fabric on my own online. While the fabric color and texture is perfect for the graceful curves and glamor of the mid-century piece, the color is NOT. It's a geometric print in light brown and cream velvet. 3 months in and the cream parts just look dirty and gross. Would have been fine for a young woman living alone, but add a dog and a man that thinks furniture is just for watching football from and, well, it's not holding up.

We're heading for a full-blown vacation this summer, but we chose our destination based on the economy. We really wanted to ride trains around Europe, but instead we're going to Nicaragua. I really recommend traveling to south or central America, were you can have a great experience for less cash (unless you go to Costa Rica, which is more touristy and thus more expensive). Traveling off the beaten path is a great way to save and have a more genuine experience.
