Favorite things.....


Vintage Needlepoint Chair

This pretty little chair was destined to be "mine".  
I was visiting my fav antiques shop, had purchased several things and was on my way out......  when.....  stop!  turn around....  what's that in the corner?  I could see the lovely pink needlepoint peeking out.  I uncovered it and fell in love.... but, unfortunately I'd spent all my money and had to walk away.
This shop is my favorite but it's also far away (almost 90 miles).  I just knew the chair would be gone by the time I could return.  Life happens and a few months had passed before I could visit again.  
I remember walking in.... looking in the same spot as before and to my disappointment ....  it was gone.  I had accepted the fact that I had missed out.  
Then suddenly... it appeared!  I couldn't believe it!  90 miles and three months later....  Sold!....  for a mere $24!
It has become one of my favorite pieces.  It's so shabby chic and the best part is....  I didn't have to do a thing to it!  I love the chippy white paint and the fabulous pink needlepoint cushion.  So perfectly....  imperfect.  
I've used it in the living room, on the porch and now in my bedroom.  I just love it!

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

HPS! Your chair is so quaint and very charming. I have an old wooden chair that came from my grandparents home. It has seen many better days but I want to sand it a bit and repaint it because it is so quaint and sturdy and I will never find another like it. It does not have a sweet needlepoint design on it though. Have a good weekend and thanks for sharing. Hugs, Anne

I would have fallen in love with that chair, too, Elizabeth. It reminds me of my grandmother.

Happy Pink Saturday. This post is being featured on my Pink Saturday post this week as "the one with the most clicks".♥
