       They used to call them "skirts" and they used to be all the rage with the homemaker types. "Modern" furniture deleted them due to their apparently decorative nature.

       //off topic//Hi SJ. Hows the painting going? My email is the same you know...   

       Claire would have a field day shredding these with her manicured claws. I can hear the sound now. But because I don't vacuum under my sofa anyway...I give this a + and make it her official new living room toy. Instead of the couch legs.   

       (I don't vacuum because I have one of those plastic swivel things that goes anywhere I push it. It gets up the dust bunnies in a rather humane way instead of sucking the life outta the poor dears.)
