early morning sunlight

I bought the chair for twenty-five cents at a tag sale

my sister and I stopped at after visiting our mum one afternoon.

I love to imagine it as part of a matching set around an old wooden table

somebody's grandmother spreading cherry preserves on a piece of homemade toast

and hanging her apron over one of the posts.

At my house it captures the early morning sunlight

jars full of green and blue sea-glass on the windowsills

frisbees brought in from the evening prior

and an old crazy quilt I keep meaning to finish....

It's one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house

and it's just a little thing



  1. Hi there! Stopping over from Tamar's link up. What a bargain on that chair!! It looks great in the morning light.

  2. What a great chair!
    So glad you linked up!!

  3. You have a beautiful imagination and express yourself so well. Yes, that chair certainly has character. And for 25 cents! What a find!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
