Favourite Things Friday


Ok Ok if you read my blog you have seen this picture before but it is one of my favourite things so I am going to use it as I am not organised and I doubt I will be by tomorrow morning (I am trying to schedule this post fingers crossed that it comes up tomorrow).  The chair was originally from my Great Grandfathers house.  My nana got a few bits of furniture when he died, when I cleaned out my Pop's house when he moved into hostel accommodation I made him take this with him as a remembrance and for me to sit on when I visited him.  When he died it came to my house.  I think every carer in the place was eyeing this seat off and quite a few commented on it.  I have a few more pieces from Nan's house that will probably come up in the coming weeks, but this is a definite favourite.

Amanda , I also have my eye on this chair! It's beautiful. It looks really old. Do you know much more about it?

I'm really into old chairs. We have about 16 of them currently around our outdoor table and under our patio. Lots of unmatching ones.

Yours is gorgeous...if you ever get sick of it you know where you can send it!

What an unusual and lovely chair! I love how the seat is seemingly plain; however, the legs and back are more ornate. The details are incredible. Someone took great pride in creating it. I can see why it would be a Favourite. Visiting from FTF. Thanks for sharing. Happy Friday! Larri at SeamsInspired
