When did I fall in love............
I guess they are like our Mr.'s
Some are old and worn.......
Some are new to us and are bright and cheery!
They come in all different sizes, styles and colors
Some of them we redo and get them just the way we like them...
Yes all the chairs I have gotten over the years
the 2 identical yellow ones my SIL gave me because she was tired
trying to scrap the paint and they were not her style.
The other yellow one at 1515 I love, Mr. and I were driving around town
in my convertible with the top down and some had put it out in the trash!
He jumped out and away we drove with it in the back seat!
And the new one the twins bought for the new deck at 1515.
But these mean the most
Back in the early 90's I found these in the basement of an antique store,
they were $2 a piece and my friends thought
"why do you want those?"
I can remember summer days at my neighbor's house, sitting in them
under her pergola, rocking and visiting. She was more like a
Grandma to me than anything.
They were my favorite color green, and you can still see a little.
Fast forward to 1996.
The first date for Mr. and I.
Now remember he is a painter.........
As we sat on my back deck, I asked him about how should I paint
Before I knew it he had them loaded up in his truck and drove away with them....
Thank goodness there was a second date!
He brought them back, white and pristine.
He was so proud, how could I not fall in love with him?
We have neglected them for a couple of years and the wear and tear show.
They make great pictures for Shabby Chic white, but I am ready for them to
be pristine white again!
So Mr. please take them to the shop and make them pretty again!
I love them and I love my Mr.
