Another Find! Sweet Little Blue Chair & Dress for the Bath

 I was so thrilled to find this Sweet Little Blue Chair at the giant Goodwill in Jackson, TN this week while looking for Fall bargains. . . .

 I headed for the household wares first. . . .as always. . . .Didn't find much there, but as I passed by the toys on my way to clothing, I glanced down the aisle and there sat the little blue chair. . . .pulled out in the middle as if a child had been sitting there and had just left for a minute. . . .I'm sure it would have been in someone's cart other than mine had it been in the household section. . . .

 
I remember chairs such as these were popular at flea markets in the 1980s. . . .They came from Mexico. . . .I had one in red. . . .Mom had one in yellow. . . .We used them to hold potted plants. . . . .I haven't seen them in years. . . .


I'm so glad the one I found this week was blue. . . .It works so well in our bath. . . .A little chippy here and there. . . . Looks as if someone glued the top rung with brown wood glue. . . .only adds character. . . .I love the folk art painted flowers. . . .so charming.


The cross-stitch towel is another thrifty find from a while back. . . .as is the vintage porcelain basket. . . .Everything came together beautifully.

As excited as I was to find the little blue chair, I was even more excited when I spotted this sweet little blue dress in the baby clothes section. . . .vintage, of course. . . .


Gave me the opportunity to tell you the news. . . .


It's a Girl!
 
John's daughter and her husband have another sweet little girl--Sarah Lynn. . . .They live in Virginia, so we've only seen photos of her. . . .Hopefully, there will be a trip to Virginia soon. . . . In celebration of the event, I had already chosen several vintage baby dresses and hung them on a clothesline in the corner of the bath. . . .
 
 
 
 
 
I had pink, yellow, and white. . . .no blue. . . .Wouldn't you know it--Goodwill had one!

 
 
Isn't it sweet hanging with the others? . . . The blue vintage hanger was mine. . . .I found it among our baby items in Mom's cedar chest. . . .I never knew Mom to be sentimental. . . .yet, the last few weeks while going through her stored boxes and the cedar chest, I've found several memories she kept. . . .She wasn't a pack rat like me, but I guess she did have her moments. . . .
 
 
 
The Goodwill finds fit right in with the baby things I've had on my mind and in my décor lately. . . .Sentimental. . . .Remembering. . . .Anticipation. . . .Joy. . . .Thoughts and ponderings on the ever present Circle of Life. . . .
 
A Sweet Little Blue Chair
A Sweet Little Blue Dress
 
Sweet Memories of Loved Ones
Sweet Memories to make
 
The Circle keeps on turning. . . .Life is good.
 
 
. . .from my farmhouse to yours. . .

Both are so sweet, but that dress is too, too adorable. My sister and I were only dressed in pink it seems...lots of those left, but no other colors;-)

Congrats on the newest member of the family.

That little chair just looks so perfect next to the bathtub! Somewhere in my past I have a memory of one of those chairs...in hot pink, I think....one of nieces or someone had one! The baby blue dress added the perfect touch!

Dru, your new found treasures are simply perfect! The sweet little dress is so sweet mixed in with your other darlings. I have had memories on my mind today also. Just did a post titled, Memories! The little cross stitched towel was a wonderful find also. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
