Back to the photo....I wanted to point out the wicker chair my grandmother is sitting in. She gave me that chair when she had to give up her home, many years after that photo was taken. The story behind the chair is that it sat in a hospital waiting area for many years. My grandmother worked in that hospital and when it came time for the hospital to move to a new building, she got the chair! She kept it painted in that hospital green they favored back in those days.
When I became the new owner, I took off the covering on the back that she had kept on it and recovered the seat cushion and spray painted the wicker antique white. After many years of use, it finally got a few wicker pieces broken and I have been meaning to get it repaired. But, I don't know who does that kind of work in this area. If any of my Missouri friends are reading this and know someone in the mid-MO area who can repair wicker, please let me know. It is one of my favorite chairs and I'd love to be able to use it again.
So, do you have a favorite item from one of your grandparents? The chair isn't the only treasure I have from my grandmother, but it is one of my favorites. I love the history of it, where it had been and knowing it is quite old, but so very sturdy. I have another favorite from her that I'll show another day.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, too!!
Until next time...
