'His and Hers'
I long while ago I blogged about my love of this chair and the many instances of what it means to me and so I know how much it can just be a comfort thing.
Imagine my surprise to see a rocking chair sitting on the path. As this street is a one way street I had to go all the way around the block and come back again for a second look. All the while hoping and praying that no one else bought it in the meantime and that it would be at a price I was happy to pay.
I was actually able to park right in front of the shop, which was just as well as I had Trahaearn asleep in the car and no older child to keep an eye on him.
I got out and walked the 2 meters (leaving the car door open and able to see the baby) and looked it over. It had a tiny broken art of the top right runner that can be glued back on with wood glue and not other damage.
I tried it out and loved it!
So next up the price!! Would it be too much?
I searched all over and could not see a price. So I was determined to follow this up I went back over to the car and started to get the sleeping baby out of his car seat. While I was doing this the owner who we know fairly well came out the front door.
I turned and said I was just coming in to find him and how much was the rocking chair?
He came over to me and said " For me $70" I said- "done I'll take it"
He even said don't get the baby out now but just pay for it when I cam back in.
Now the next day was my Honey's birthday and wouldn't you just say that was a 'divine intervention?' Cause I would!
When I got it home I was so excited I just had to tell Stephen as he was away in Wagga already. He was worried about the price initially until I told him the bargain price.......now he loves the idea of a matching set of 'his n hers' rocking chairs.
Or is it the three bears.........look at the last photo with Corbyn's along side.
Just too cute isn't it!
Hmm this was a post I wrote before we left Tassie, I hoped to pre-publish but never got around to it. So enjoy this look from our old home as it looks quite different now, lol
Blessings to you and your homes,
