Time to S P R I N G into action......

Thursday, February 26










A 60 degree day has snuck into this late February day and I'm doing the happy dance. Springtime pillows are starting to pop-up throughout the shop just as the bulbs along the walk do the same. Folks are starting to buy with their front porches in mind and talk of the Easter season coming late this year. The Leesburg Flower and Garden Show has been inked into our calender for April 18th and 19th.
Spring is a coming!

a sweet little chair affair

Monday, February 16











I have a sweet obsession with children's chairs. I'm drawn to them. The really well loved ones have always been my favorite. You know the ones, with clever little repairs. A tell tale sign that someone cared enough to reinforce their wobbly little leg with wire, a little bracket or a little scrap of metal. That little repair makes them more valueable to me, an outward sign of just how important they were to someone.

I had a little chair. It was just the right size for me. It was once my father's chair when he was little. Being the youngest of four, it was in my bedroom. When I was little I would rock in it, feeling self important and imagine what I could be. It felt good having something just my size, just for me, that used to be my Dad's.
My children have rocked in that same chair. And I hope their children will rock in it, as well as their children's children too. Maybe not in that same house, but in that same sweet little chair. When I see that little chair that's what I think of now. And when I see any little well loved chair, I think about the little persons who once sat in it and dreamed their sweet little dreams. I guess that's what makes me love children's chairs.

So whatever your size how about taking some time out of your day to sit in your favorite chair and dream a little dream.
