Thrift Share

My thrift finds for the week . . . 
Chairs were the theme of this weeks thrift finds.

When I saw this wooden chair I knew I had to get it.
This reminded me of all picnics in the yard with relatives.

How many hands touched the back of this chair, perhaps leaning 
over the back to whisper I love you or to spread some juicy gossip.
Where has this simple wooden chair been and how many people 
sat on this wooden seat?

What a shame that the original label is unreadable.

The legs and the cut out work on this chair
made me like it from the get go.

Clean lines with a flair.

Missing a rung and certainly need tightening up
but once painted a soft off white it will make
a nice accent chair in my spare bedroom.

I found six yards of this beautiful Wyn Haven fabric.
I believe the birds are pheasants, curtains, perhaps
a reupholstered seat on a chair. Whatever this
fabrics is used for it will be stunning.
