For a number of years, I enjoyed this plaid wing-back chair in my office. It has been with me a long time, but its history is another post for another day (or not).
In early 2013, my grand-niece, sugar plum I call her, had just turned two, so when I found a little table-and-chair set in a thrift store close to my mom's house, I snatched it up and brought it home. The office seemed the right place for it, so I relocated the chair. I knew sugar plum would have a whole lot of fun in this space, at this table.
And that is precisely what has happened. From Play-Doh bonanzas, to puzzles, to drawing, to eating lunch, this little table has been, and continues to be, a perfect fit for the youngsters.
But there was one chair that I dreamed of having in my office, a chair I’ve loved from the day I sat in it at my sister’s home many years ago.
So when it came up for grabs last month, I raised my hand and said, “ME, ME! Pick me!”
And that's how it came to pass that this cozy chair is now in our home office. In time, I may slipcover it, but for now I’m enjoying it to the fullest and I think it still looks wonderful.
It’s big enough to sleep in, practically, and plenty big enough for two while reading books.
As for the little table, it now sits in front of the window, behind the big chair, still bringing joy and a happy space for the little ones. And with a grandbaby on the way, I expect it will be around for many years to come.
