A room of one's own - - -


a chair.

A very special chair.

“You don't just want to sit in a chair.
You want to experience it!”
                                              ― Anthony T. Hincks

If you're following the saga of my room of my own, you know I've been on the hunt for a chair.

A fancy little lady's chair to go in a storage area that has one section painstakingly put together for just me.

I'm still in the process of putting it all together, and having fun doing it.

I have wonderful windows to watch out as the seasons change.

While it's not as though I'll be spending hours and hours out of every day here, when I am here, there needs to be a chair.

“There is something much better than sitting on an empty chair and that is to watch it and to let it to inspire you to think deeply!”
                                            ― Mehmet Murat ildan

A very special little chair.

And I knew I would recognize it when I saw it.

It was love at first sight.

Just like in the movies - - -  

I spied it from across the room . . . 

and knew.

😍 😍 😍 😍 😍 😍 😍

and it was marked down, 

                       marked down, 

                                       marked down

to a give-away price.

A price so low Donald didn't flinch when I said, "there's my chair."  

Didn't cringe when I cooed at the chair and said, "you're going home with us, sweetheart."

It certainly is not a chair that is exactly Don Barley's cup of tea.   He knew this chair was not one that was coming into the house and he was not going to be looking at it every day.

This was my chair.

Virginia Woolf would be proud.

“You’ll be sorry to worry when you’ve done your best; instead pull an easy chair and cheer yourself.”

I love that chair. I have a recliner shaped like that and after years and years it is on it's last legs. I keep looking for a replacement. You have given me hope that one is out there.
