Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Little Red Chair

Look what I found at Hobby Lobby last week!  If you don't have a Hobby Lobby near you
I'm so sorry!  Love that store.  Anyway, they had a couple of different kinds of little chairs
embroidered on tea towels.  I had to buy the one with the red chair.

 Because I have a real little red chair.  It was my great grandmothers.  She was less than 5 ft tall and kept it in her kitchen and used it to stand on to reach things in upper cabinets.  I love this little chair.  And I love the towel.  And you already know I love Hobby Lobby. 
(Yes I know the baseboard is missing.  It's #267 on our to do list.)

First of all, I am jealous of not having a Hobby Lobby. I have almost the same little red chair except that is has one extra spindle in the back. I love the little towel. As for the nursery it is up behind the Cambria Pines Lodge. I believe it is owned by the same people. You have to visit it if you get into town. It is lovely and has a nice shop too but a bit pricey. I didn't even get in there because we had our two year old and she was busy running around outside.

love the little chair! I also have one almost like it. Mine belonged to my aunts mother in law. AND yeah, so jealous of the whole hobby lobby thing! .........but I'll bet you can't drive around your streets backwards can you?
(gotta have something here you don't there! lol)

Not only do I love Hobby Lobby AND the darling little red chair, but I also love the thought of a cute little under five foot grandma, climbing on the chair to reach things.

That towel is adorable, and darn it, I don't have a Hobby Lobby nearby! The fact that you have your grandmothers little red chair? (adorable!) Priceless:>)

What a cute, sentimental red chair. The towel just makes it perfect!

We do have a Hobby Lobby close by that just opened up and I haven't been there yet! Perhaps a visit should be my Saturday activity!
Love your red chair and your towel.
