A Favourite Chair

climbing on chairThis is one of my favourite chairs. My mom and I found it at an antique store in town last year and she gave it to my daughter for Christmas. At the moment my four year old daughter uses it at the table as she couldn’t quite reach high enough, but soon it will be passed down to my 14 month old. She’s getting antsy in her highchair, I think she just wants to be right up to the table with the rest of us. I love that it takes up so little space, and it’s the perfect height so that little ones don’t have to eat with their hands up by their ears. I love the pale green that it was painted and the fact that it is worn on the edges. It had a life before it came to live with us, and besides, I would much rather find a piece that has a history than just purchasing something new. I think it adds much more charm. I love pieces with a history whether I know exactly what it is or not, and I really love that it will have a life after my little ones when we pass it down to their little ones.

    Great photo (as are all of the beautiful photos you take!). I too, love things that have a history. Just yesterday making the bread pudding in your great grandmother’s dish I wondered how many times loving hands had filled it up with delicious treats for the family in years gone by.
