The yellowpants experience, coming to you LIVE from my new chair!!
Here's yet another reason why living here beats living in NV: spontaneous antique shopping on a lazy saturday.
We were just taking the dog for a walk and going to the antique shop across the street to look at a new sofa for the shop (maybe we'll get it, have to see if Nick likes it first.)
And there on the street, in the bright sunshine, were two beautiful, old, danish dining room chairs. Can't say for sure when they're from, fifties, sixties?
I fell in love and we bought them right away. I almost forgot to ask Allan if he liked them, i was so sure they were meant to be mine.
There are only two, so i didn't have to get rid of my old chairs. I'm strangely attached to them even though they're falling apart.
I've cleaned them up a bit and now they're just looking like they were always here. They really tie the room together, as the Dude would say.
And now i'm sitting here, blogging in one. Actually using the room i don't use as much as i'd like to. The chairs are gonna change all that. Good chairs can do that.
