Look what came to live in my house today! I am posting this blog from this very rocking chair!
It's extremely comfortable. I've known this since I was a little girl. My paternal grandparents had a cabin that we would visit in the summer. This chair was one of 2 (different) chairs that sat in front of the fireplace.
It was a favorite of my great grandfather, I am told. When I was a child, I remember it being covered in red naugahyde. My dad had it refinished a few years ago, and then re-upholstered as it had originally been.
Look at the old springs! They give a nice rock.
Nice detail on the sides.
A whole lot of detail.....
....and some more....
....and another view.
Look at the upholstery detail on the back!
If you're about 3 pounds in size, it's a great place to lay down. Clarence is another of my favorite things.
I'm joining Laurie (bargainhungingwithlaurie.blogspot.com) for A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday!
