Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A New Seat

My dressing table -- which is really an alcove in the master bedroom. The alcove is really a closet -- but a closet with a window!

The seat for in front of the table -- an iron bench covered with a pink rose fabric (which doesn't match anything in the master bedroom except most of the fabrics are pink roses).

And then . . . . I was at a favorite shop on the prairie and found the perfect chair.

It's small, has an open back and it's seat is pink flowers. Not all are roses but that's okay because it's pink. And I think it looks SMASHING sitting in front of the dressing table!
The seat is needlepoint with some age but still in good condition.

I think it is the perfect place to sit and perform miracles with my lotions and potions.

Of course, I do have a chair fetish and am always looking at chairs although there is really no need for another chair at Linderhof.

This time, however, my chair fetish paid off. I have the best seat in the house every morning and every evening!

It's a gorgeous chair Martha, and perfect for that space. I love the screen in there, I think I might have said that before. I didn't notice that you had hung art from the screen, though. That's genius, and oh so beautiful!

Martha~I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.

Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

Sweet Holiday wishes,
