a chair it’s likely to have a horticultural theme! With some surprise, I realized that in all my long, long life I’ve never actually purchased a chair for myself. Early in my home making years, furniture was usually hand-offs. Then it was thrift stores or used furniture purchases. It doesn’t make sense to buy new furniture with young children and pets. I’ve bought a couple of sofas over the decades, and dining room furniture twice, but never a chair just for me…a chair with arm rests at just the right height for holding a book comfortably, a seat the correct height so my feet rest easily on the floor. Decadence! It even reclines! The fabric is covered with wildflowers, horticultural script, plant book titles, ferns, dragonflies and botanical drawings. I could spend an afternoon just reading my chair! The only drawback? With its light colored fabric, I’ll have to put on clean jeans when I come in from the garden. But right now, with snow covering the ground and single digit temperatures on the way, I’ll just be staying indoors, feeling like a queen on her new throne! Suggestions for good reading would be appreciated!
