My Pink Chair

I think it was 1995 when I purchased this chair.(correction...1989 is more like it) It was a matching set, couch and chair. Our living room at the time was too small for the love seat. This chair has been with us for all the important moments. The babies first pictures as they arrived home, snuggles before bed, the two o'clock feedings, late nights waiting for teenagers, Christmas mornings, kittens, puppies, Birthdays, even the unexpected sour stomach ( if you know what I mean). The couch has been replaced just this year, but I couldn't give up this comfortable chair. I'm surprised that I have become sentimental about a chair. Me... the one that buys and sells furniture nearly everyday.

The small table behind the chair was an auction find for the shop. I decided it had to come home before someone bought it and I had regret. I'm usually pretty good about resisting, however the table is perfect for the room. As promised, here are some more pieces from my personal Hull collection. Kitchen pieces, mixing bowls and casseroles.

Hi Heidi!
The stories your Pink chair could tell. Nothing like a sturdy and comfortable chair to hold you in it's lap. I adore your Hull pottery.

I know what's it's like to have regret and you don't want it. It takes a long time to get over something you wanted and missed. The chair is great, it's in your heart and your memories too. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

what memories! My mother had that same pink-with-fruit kitchen mixing bowl set and covered casserole, etc. I believe she took it from her mother when she started setting up housekeeping.

thanks for posting!

Hello Heidi,
The chair looks so comfortable. I have become sentimental about things that have connected me to my children as they've grown up. I understand.
I am not familiar with the Hull collection but it is beautiful. I will enjoy looking at the web site.
