On beautiful cool mornings like today, you will find me on the front porch sipping my coffee while sitting in my "green chair from Greenup".
You ask.....what is that?
This is my green chair on the front porch,
it is so comfy.
My hometown has several antique shops and when I was buying things for my garden cottage, I spotted this.
It was at a store in the old bank, and as Mike from pickers would say "it was farm fresh". I think it had been pulled out of a barn, it had mud embedded in the wicker. It was not cheap, more than I normally would ever pay.....but it was a few months after my Mom died so I told myself, go ahead and get it.
I think in it's previous life it must of been on an old farm porch, and was there for the farmer to sit, drink an ice tea and cool off after a day in the fields.
While sitting in it what have people seen?
Children playing, neighbors waving, and a garden growing.
It was only in the cottage a short time. My inlaws sold their home and it was replaced my a slipper chair in the basement my MIL was going to throw out.
The slipper chair was perfect for the cottage, so the "green chair from Greenup", ended up on the front porch....probably where it belonged anyway.
I love the design of it. It is so well made and sturdy.
The arms are large enough to set a drink on or in my case to put my laptop on.
What would that 1920's farmer think of a laptop?
It is my place where I wait for Mr. to come home, to take a break from gardening and a place to contemplate life.
It is my "green chair from Greenup"
it makes me feel close to home............
it makes me feel close to my Mom.........
It embraces me.
Where is your comfy place?
Have a wonderful day.
