Yes, she is OLD~~~


But, there is a fountain of youth:

It is your mind, your talents,
the creativity you bring to your life 
and the lives of the people you love...

When you learn to tap this source...

You will truly have defeated age...

This old beauty is a "road kill" chair...
She was just sitting out on the side of a dirt road and a friend brought her to me... 
She is sturdy and strong ~ nothing at all wrong with her, but age...
She was just a 'throw away,' by somebody that couldn't see her beauty~!

I figure later, I'll add her to the 'old chair wall' being planned in the backyard on the side of the shed, to hold flower pots and such next year...

I think she's BEAUTIFUL~!!!

Linking to these FABULOUS parties ~ Go check them out~!

  1. Great post and photos. Visiting from Share Your Cup. New follower! :) Pam

  2. Love the lines of the chair. How perceptive of you to recognize a treasure at curbside. I've become a follower.

    1. Crazy how some fail to see the beauty in some things. I can't imagine tossing out something this grand.
      Thanks for the visit & welcome to my blog!

  3. So glad you saved the old chair. I think it is beautiful! Just don't understand why anyone would throw it away. Glad your friend saved it for you. :)

    1. You know, my greatest "pickers" are the 65+ bachelors around here that just drive the dirt roads all day out of boredom. If they see something they think I'll save, or I might like ~ they're ON IT... lol
      Old men have great taste~!
      *of course sometimes, when they bring some things, I'm clueless what they are!*

  4. She is lovely! Glad that she found her way to your house! She has defeated age. Following you now, don't want to miss anything!

  5. Oh she is a beauty Jen! With age comes wisdom. So happy that she was rescued and brought to your home where she will be loved. I also posted and old chair that I love. Thanks for sharing her with SYC.

  6. she is beautiful. She will look nice where ever she ends up.

  7. A great chair. Nothing so well made and sturdy now.
