Hi Bloggerettes!  I have obsessions.  I am a obsessionista.  I have an obsession for pillows, benches, chairs and ottomans.  I just realized that I have several ottomans, footstools, tuffets or hassocks....whatever you call them.

I'm not even going to tell you what I paid for this sweet tuffet
but I will tell you that it came from Horchow....so need I say more.
Anyway, I've had it for at least 10 years and I never tire of it

This one has a matching chair, see the pink in the fabric.

Love the pear fabric on this one.  Fell in love with it a long time ago too!

Footstool or table????

You've seen this one before....it's in the master bath.

This pretty is in the master closet and is perfect for sitting down to put on your shoes.

So there you have it.  A look at just one of my many obsessions.

What is your current obsession?

My obsession? Stuff...just everything in general. I love anything old...love chairs, lamps, dishes, birds, should I go on? So add me to your obsessionista list! I could be the VP!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Sissie! I think if I counted how many footstools, tuffets or ottomans I have it would be "too many"! Especially since I have made several of them. I think my current obsession is anything with ruffles on it.

Linda said...

Obsession, let me see, everything? Well dishes for sure and pottery and birds and cups...well lots of stuff.

Laura said...

These are adorable!! My current obsessions are buttons, antique toolboxes, and finding treasures on the side of the road.

I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog and I'd love it if you stopped by.

Laura @ along for the ride

Love the first one! I have one in mini, does that count?!? Actually I am looking for that "one" for the master bath.

Lately my obsession is YARD SALES!!!!

KATHY said...

LuLu Kellogg said...

Oh my goodness.....I thought I was the only one with this obsession! I will have to take a picture of my new round ottoman with the rosettes on the top....you will LOVE it!!

I love all of yours. You better hide 'em!

My latest obsession is flea market shopping. It's not a thing, but at least I can find things there.

Debra@Common Ground said...

Ooohh, I love this new word, "Obsessionista" brings all kinds of things to mind! My obsessions seem to rotate and morph, but I do have a thing for small tables, way too many and I just added one more to my list. How many tables can one person need? Good thing your little ottomans are smaller than tables, or you'd be in trouble too! ha ha! love them all!
Oh and the high chair from last post...sooo much sweeter than those modern metal ones. She's such a little cutie.

Gracefully Vintage said...

Hey Sissie, Im a big fan of the ottoman-as well, there is something to that accent piece or the so many options in how they look- fancy-simple-ruffled-plain-kitchen-bedroom-living room.
Thanks for stopping by to visit.

Hello Little Miss Sissie Muffet!
I really love all of your footstools, especially the one in your bathroom! Looks so luxurious! The bunny one (I say it's a table!) is adorable, too. Don't you just love the word "tuffet"?! My current obsessions? Lets see, trays, toile anything, and anything on a pedestal!

Debby said...

Sissie, this is a beautiful post and I love the ottomans. I have far too many obsessions of late and it needs to stop...LOL...

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Oh my gosh, something ELSE we have in common! But you've got me beat! I have a bench in my master closet, three ottomans in my den, one in my living room. I'll picture them sometime for you! Yours are all so very pretty! And where do you keep the precious bunny table/footstool?

Big TX Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Sissie....My obsessions change on and off but if I see anything that might go with my decorating scheme or if I can make it over then I WANT it!~Hugs, Patti

Kathy said...

Love each and every one!
Funny how we are drawn to certain things...
I'm just basically obsessed period.
I think I need a shop...pretty soon we won't have room to walk around!
I'm starting on the basement now...
Black and reds....
quite a change from upstairs!!!! Hugs...

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Well, I kinda like your obsession. Had an ottoman obsession of my own going on awhile back. Then redecorated and never got around to recovering them, so I've got a bunch in hiding at the moment. You've inspired me. Now if you'll kindly send me some time.....

Lynn-Teacupstitches said...

Hi Sissie!
I believe you are a tuffet-A-holic!! They are all so cute that it would be hard to resist any of them!
I have way to many obsessions to mention but fabric would be the number one!
I wanted to let you know that you won my giveaway that ended yesterday! I dont think they are all that much "your look" BUT Christmas is not that far off and it gives you a head start on gift buying :-)))
Thank you so much for your entries!!
Hugs and smiles,

Riet said...

Hi Sissie. I love your ottomans, my favorite it the one with the pear fabric, so lovely.My obsession is cups and saucers. I have at least 75 in the house. Everywhere I come and see them I have to buy at least two. LOL.
Have a great day my friend.

Dorthe said...

Sissie, dear-
Horshow----is not a name I`m familiar with here in Denmark, but it would certainly be a ottoman I would love to be familiar with!!wow it is very beautifull, and elegant, the other ones ,too--but this one is special.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

My name is PJ. said...

Each one is gorgeous....even the one with the pink in it! You forgot to mention your obsession with white tables! :)

Miss Gracie's House said...

You *do* love ottomans:) ! That is a great idea-putting one in your closet! I enjoyed going back and getting caught up with all of your prettiness..thank you so much for all of your sweet encouragement! Have a great week!

Diane said...

"Tuffet". I love that word! Doesn't it conjure up all sorts of comfy little tucked and ruffled confections! You have some pretty ones, Sissie!

Love the Decor! said...

Have a wonderful day Sissie

I can understand the obsession completely! They are all so uniquely special, maybe because they offer you the chance to put your feet up and relax for a bit!

I LOVE 'em all Sissie. Especially your little Horchow tuffet! And what a great idea for the dressing room. I have got to do that. I'm tired of trying to balance on one leg, while putting on my shoes!
hugs to you from here


Hi Sissie, I love your sweet collection of ottomans! Each one is so pretty, the first one is my favorite and I know it had to cost a fortune! My obsession lately is plates, linens, and all things for tablescaping. My house is groaning because I keep bringing in more things, sigh...what's a girl to do? At least my honey doesn't mind one bit. Have a great night, Sissie!

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

I've a thing for footstools too and I would love to have a couple. You've got a great collection! Isn't it just so comfortable to put the legs up on one? I also like them decorated with a tray and some goodies on it.
My newest obsession are darning mushrooms. I'm not sure if we can talk about an obsession yet since I have only one yet, lol. I bought this one some weeks ago on a flea market and loved it and now I like to have some more :-).


Hi Sissy,

I'd tell you my obsessions, but you might rat me out to Dr. Phil. Yes, I have many. But I do love your ottoman obsession. It is beautiful and oh so comfortable!

Take care,
