2nd Time Around Tuesday

I am linking to A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words for 2nd Time Around Tuesday

Many years ago (at least 15 or more) I came across this chair. When I found it at a flea market, it was dirty and the real beauty did not show through, It was a steal for $5. I took it home, cleaned it up, and used it mainly to decorate for many years. It then graced my classroom and I used it for my "read aloud" chair. The students were allowed to sit in it when reading their journal entries aloud to the class.

Oops, I just noticed I haven't cleaned it since it left my classroom. On the next sunny day, I think I need to get out the Murpheys Oil Soap.

This next chair belongs to Mr. Paramedic's grandmother. My son and daughter sat in this chair many a day while they were growing up. 

Now, I only allow my stuffed animals and other treasures to sit on it. Not that my son and daughter are not my treasures--they are just a little too big.

Look!  It even folds for storage.

Hmmm. I think it needs cleaned too.

If you have treasures that are the 2nd Time Around, I encourage you to participate. It's not too late. 

And "hugs" and a big "thank you" to all of you that have left comments on my blogs. It is great to come home in the evening and read kind and encouraging words from friends.  

Now, if only my family would leave comments. Love you guys.

Until next time . . . 

Take Care and God Bless.

Very nice. I love chairs. Always buy them when I find a good deal. I have too many chairs in my house now : )) I used to have two of those little folding chairs when I was little!

Ok, I'll comment. I think you are doing great with this blog. Donlt know where you get all you ideas but I see you use our everyday, taken for granted belongings for inspiration. It is really nice to see these 2nd time aroung items in use and so thoughtfully used in decoration.

Oh I love both chairs. So neat. The folding one is really cool reminds me of some I had that were reproductions. Thanks for sharing your treasures.
I have a 2nd time post up today too.
And, I have been working in my sewing room all day. Alas cleaning and sorting. My poor little machine never got turned on. Maybe tomorrow.
Have a Blessed Evening,

I have a couple of those little chairs too and my teddy bears also sit in them. I call them the Sunday School Chairs because those are the ones we sat in back then.
