Happy

I was walking with Joni yesterday and saw this lovely old rocker in the window of the second hand store. I kept thinking about it and today went and purchased it for myself.
It's pure loveliness. It's a little flawed,but that's what makes it so perfect. I bought a new cushion for it and here it sits in my living room....




I just have to make sure no one sits on it and breaks it!!
Gotta go and get ready to take the boys to cubs.

very nice! how would you get your boys NOT to sit in it?

Jenny said...

They just KNOW not to!LOL It sounds odd but I have never had problems with them touching or playing with items they know not to...watch me say that and next thing you'll know the chair will be broken!

love the chair, it looks great with the plant beside it and your boys wouldn't touch it. my boys and girl would be using it for an anchor to make a tent or something, would have it on its side for a cage you name it they would think of something haha they would be careful tho.

Love it! To keep people off it, you should put a picture on it. (I gave one to Murphy of me and Taz to keep her guests off her grandma's old rocker) It's an awesome chair and would look great with a bird's nest or something resting on it.

Maybe you could turn this into a fun blog game. Place different objects on it and we could vote on which looks better? hahah! I'm losing my marbles, I tell ya!

nice find!!! And good on you to see it's potential. I probably would've looked over it because of it's flaws....but you totally dressed it up and made it look awesome with that snazzy cusion!
