Great Find!

I popped into the Goodwill after work last night and I found this wonderful childrens' glider chair. Now I just need to decide which room it's going to live in! Then I get to decide whether or not to paint it and what fabric to use for some fun, new cushions!

I bet my grandbabies will love this new chair ~ of course they won't all be able to sit in it at the same time. But that's what the old blanket chest is for!

What a fantastic find Marie! It would look great painted white! Hope you are well, it has been ages since I visited. "G'day" to all of the grandbabies today!!

Great find indeed! The grandbabies are going to love it! But the photo of them all in the blanket chest made me really laugh. You take the greatest pics of your little pumpkins.
Funny, we both took a big risk this week, posting our daughter's pics. I think the risk was worth it. Mandy looks so cute here! And happy.
I enjoyed the post with the Marjorie Holmes excerpt. How true it rings! Isn't she the one who wrote 'Two from Galilee'?
And last...I LOVED the photo of Miss Charlotte's face saying, "Oh come on Gramma"...Another treasure. : )

What a great find,Marie. I can't wait to see the makeover you give it...the picture of the babies in the hopechest is so cute.

Marie, it's awesome! And I think they could all fit... at least for a little while!

Thanks for your sweet comments, it was so great to hear from you! And my sewing machine was a gift too, from my in-laws, for Robyn's and my first Christmas (I was pregnant with Emily then) Little did they know how much it would mean to me!

Have a great day, Kimberly

Great chair! With your love of teddies, you may want to just keep it as it is. Looks like it's in good shape. Babies in a blanket chest....sounds like a Anne Geddes picture! Cute!
