This chair was at a dear friend’s house and we were having fun visiting. You can see we are both all smiles and his lap made another great chair for me. I like the color and how shiny the chair is, which is so perfect for the era. Don’t see many like this anymore. I can’t remember if it was a recliner or rocking chair or what exactly.
My Grandpa is the one who inspired this blog. He was so very special to me and I still miss him very much. This was much younger than I remember him looking but it’s still the same smile and joy that he had of seeing his grandchildren.
The clothes are certainly circa late 60s, which is when I think this was taken. I’ll have to ask my mom for the exact year. I really like Grandpa’s yellow shirt and his sweater. And, my pink and white polka dot dress with matching hat are wonderful and such fun. I still love to wear hats and often do. They just don’t match so perfectly as this one did.
The same day this photo was taken, I sat on my dad’s lap. It too is one of my favorite pictures. I love to see these men who have always been so important in my life at a time that I don’t really remember. Both old and new photos are very special to me. This one and several others I have are real treasures. And, I love to hear the stories behind them from my parents and other relatives.
I wonder what other treasures I will find with my pictures? I can’t wait to find out. And, what interesting chairs I will come across? Should be fun. Have a great day!
