Show & Tell

Here's another piece of furniture I purchased at an estate sale many, many years ago. Nothing has been done to the wood but I have covered the seat to match at least three other rooms over time. It's been a country blue and a cream and burgundy stripe over the years. This time we put it in our bedroom to have a place to rock our grand babies upstairs if need be.

It has the old springs or coils under it and some would say not as comfortable as the modern rockers but I love to rock in it. It's probably 70 or more years old. It sits in the sitting room of our bedroom

I'll take a couple of cookies, a diet coke and let's watch Oprah! Of course, beautiful as always!

Lovely room, and a rocking chair is a comfortable item to have. We still have the one I rocked my 12 year old in when she was a babe.

What a lovely chair & a lovely room for it to go in!

Oh my gosh the red is nearly the same. I love it!!!! So nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by my blog. I am originally from Mich. but I did not know that artist. I love your sitting room's cozy feeling. I could spend lots of time there. Your red ceiling is exactly the style of our master. I painted mine like the sky with soft clouds. Wonderful to wake up too. The tea party looks divine. What fun the little ones must have had. I have so enjoyed by visit here and look forward to coming back often.
