HANDMADE ROCKING CHAIR

Day Twenty of November’s
I am a Woman of Simplicity!

I am sharing an old rocking chair, my great uncle made in years gone by. My daddy had this rocking chair on his back porch. He was building a new house and was throwing the old rocker away.
I saved this old rocking chair and now it on my porch. It looks as if someone replaced the seat with  plywood and it may have been white at one time, for white is showing through a blue. My grandaughter Hannah, has claims on it. She thinks its is her and no one is allowed to sit in the rocking chair, but Hannah. This rocking chair is smaller than the ones, that I bought at Cracker Barrell.
We shall fix my great uncle rocking chair up and give it a new life.

  5. How wonderful that you have that chair! I love it, and if it were me, I wouldn’t do a lot of fixing up. It has so much history and personality. laurie

  6. So glad you saved that chair. Men have no concept of family heirlooms I think. I’d have been saying to my dad, “Your going to do WHAT with that chair?, I don’t THINK so?”. Can’t wait to see what it looks like when you breath new life into it. Maybe Hannah will decide to adopt it when she is of age, and so the chair goes to the next generation.
