Happy Birthday Pink Saturday!

Hi Bloggerettes!! It's celebration time!  It's Pink Saturday's Birthday
and you are all invited to join in on all the fun and pinkalicious

Be sure and stop by our host blog, How Sweet The Sound
and join in on the big celebration bash!

I haven't much to share today.  My brother is visiting and we have been running around and shopping.  But, I do want to share this old rocking chair.
It was a pitiful little thing with no seat.  Just springs. 
So out comes the white paint and the sander.

My little wooden flower box was the perfect size for the seat
so, temporarily it will be on the porch as a flower container.
Later on it will probably get a seat cushion and back
but I love it just the way it is.
And the best part of all is that is was "Free!"
The habitat manager gave it to me because they were going to throw it away! arghhhhhhhhh!  At least they know a junkanista
when they see one!

Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend celebration!!

Except for no seat {which you don't even notice} it looks in pretty good shape, Sissie! I like your temporary use for it, too.

Sheila said...

Hi Sissie, I love old rocking chairs too. I can just imagine how many songs were sung to sweet little babies, how many stories were told to a grandchild and how many cups of coffee were enjoyed on a beautiful spring morning with the sun coming up in a beautiful pink sky.. Thanks for the memories. Sheila

Debby said...

Marydon Ford said...

This would capture my heart & attention quickly ... you can the people of a home by the presentation of their front door & entry.

May your Memorial weekend & celebrations be safe & enjoyable, filled merriment ... as you solemnly remember those that have passed before us & our military that protect(ed)s our freedoms. LET FREEDOM RING!!

TTFN ~ Hugs of love, Marydon
