I was beginning to think this day would never come. . .I've dreamed. . .I've planned. . .I've waited. . .and waited. . .and waited. . .I've teased you as well as myself. . .The time is here! THIS will be the Summer of a 'new' living room. . .This sweet little chair got me started. . .Although I may not use it in the living room, it was while I was photographing it in front of the glass front cabinet that I began to dream again--no--not dream--It was a decision I made--to get this room together.
With the nice weather--there's a lot of activity going on around the farm. . . The farmers are planting from sunrise to sunset. . .and here at the historic district, we're replacing the wrap-around porch on the house. . .the log house is on it's way up (finally). . .the country store is taking shape after a major clean-out. . .our collection of twenty treadle sewing machines are being made ready for display in the store. . . Inside our home, the living room and one bedroom will be getting a new floor, new paint, new curtains, new slip-covers. . .I should wait to work on the living room until the new floor is down. . . but I'm not. . .No telling when we'll have the time to do it. . .Our priority list is long. . .and I didn't want to live another minute in junky chaos (my definition of the living room now). . .It might be the end of Summer before John and I can get to the floor. . .No more waiting!
I will be taking down the 1930s bark cloth drapes and replacing them with sheers--at least for the summer. . .I've already moved in a second couch and a prim table. . .but, mostly I've moved things out. . .simplified. . .Don't want a lot of clutter.
And, the vintage wicker chair? . . Where does it fit in? . . Not sure, yet. . .It might stay. . .or not. . .You'll have to watch and see. . .It was another of my finds--the day I picked up the ladder for the bath. . .I did have to pay $5 for it. . .almost 'free'. . .It caught my eye because of it's shabby, faded seat cover and it's chippy, white paint. . .I thought it would go well in the bedroom sitting in front of the vanity. . .Now that I see it in the living room, I'm not so sure. . .
Such a simple little chair to inspire me to 'get to work'. . .I think it's lovely. . .
Wherever it ends up!
. . .from my farmhouse to yours. . .
