Here is my ‘bigger than a breadbox’ treat from my mom – a fifty year old wing- back chair. There’s a story behind it. First of all, it belonged to my beloved late aunt, who died over 20 years ago. When she moved from Philly to Florida, she decided to buy new furniture, and gave me the chair and some other goodies (like my bedroom deco desk, her silver, etc). My aunt and I obviously came from the gene pool – she loved to redecorate constantly (today we call it tweaking!) and I adored her. So, I had the chair for a long time, and like a real stooge, I got bored with it and gave it to my mom, ohhhh, about 5 years ago. I happened to open up this month’s CS, and what did I see? A wing-back chair VERY similar to my aunt’s chair – and for $250 dollars. Back I went to my mom’s and told her I WANT IT BACK!!! LOL!!! She wasn’t using it so she had no problem with giving it back to me for the second time!
I did a few other smaller tweaks. I changed the lampshade on my Stiffel lamp and it immediately primmed it up. (So why had I never thought of it before??) It's red checks, but the pattern didn't photograph well.
And what do you think my coonie was doing while all of this tweaking was going on?? Gee, this should be no surprise!! LOL.
Well, it’s bedtime already… my tweaking and a long work day tired me out! Hope you all have a great rest of the week. Thanks for stopping by to visit!
