There was one photo that jumped instantly to mind when I read the topic for this week...
That is Tyler at age 2, sitting on the front porch of the beautiful beach house we rented on The Outer Banks...the first and last time we rented one. I hope we can do it again some day. There was a pair of these rocking chairs and it was so nice (and really comfortable) to sit in the late afternoon, rock, and admire the weather and neighborhood.
Then there is my personal favorite place in the house to sit (other than at my desk):
That wing chair belonged to Grandma. It's right by the front bay window (where we put our Christmas tree every year) and by part of my book collection. You can just see the edge of the fireplace too (to the right of that pillar candle). It's a really nice spot to sit and read in the winter time, with a nice fire going and snow falling outside the window. The boys like to sit on my giant pink velvet floor cushions in front of the fire.
Finally, there are the chairs I've been meaning to blog about since Max's birthday:
These two vintage maple chairs were a gift from my MIL to the boys. Back in the day (1940s-1980s) John's grandfather was a toy salesman. These chairs were part of his inventory at one time. A friend of my MIL restored them after 30+ years of neglect in my MIL's basement. She picked the neat vintage jungle print fabric and made it into cushions. Both chairs used to be rockers, but the rocker rails were badly rotted on the one chair, so she just cut them off. It makes the chair the perfect height for Max to enjoy. Not pictured here is a "love seat" style bench the boys got for Christmas.
I remember having a really nice maple table and chairs when I was a little girl (with endless tea parties) - but kids' furniture like this is really hard to find these days. The boys tell me they love their chairs and they made an excellent addition to our new playroom.
