Before I tell you about today's photo, I want to thank Amber for hosting this week's photo challenge. It was so fun! I've never participated in a photo challenge before and I hope to do it again.
For my "something old" photo I walked around the house with my camera and looked for something that sparked my interest. What I decided on was this upholstered rocking chair. This chair belonged to my parents until last summer when they moved into a duplex. At that time, I scammed it from them for my home. It has been a great addition to our living room. The most wonderful thing about this "old" chair is that my parents had it all through my childhood. In fact, I have very vivid memories of coming out of my bedroom in the dark of the early morning and having my mom rock me in this chair until I woke up. During my childhood the chair was upholstered in a velvety green fabric. At some point that wore thin and my parents had it reupholstered in the current fabric. Green is my fave color, so I wish it still had the original fabric. Still..........I am really happy that it now lives in my living room. I love to sit in it and read at night when everyone else is asleep. And I also love to have one of the boys curl up in it with me to share a story.
