The Red Rocking Chair
Hello from Ladybug Cottage! I hope you have all had a great day. I am so glad it is the first day of March, the Dairy Queen across the street from my school opened today. I always think of that as the first sign of spring.
Today I wanted to tell you about my red rocking chair. I found it at a garage sale for five dollars. Of course it did not look like this when I bought it. It was all scratched and the pad was really gross. When I bought it my husband rolled his eyes and said"are you kidding", This was last summer at the time there was an Activia commercial about a preschool teacher with a red rocker. I really didn't pay attention to the commercial I was to busy looking at the chair. My husband being the good guy that he is took the chair to his wood shop and began to work it over. I started looking for just the right fabric for the chair cushion. Being a lover of all things Mary Englebrite I went with the red cherries. I love sitting in it and sharing good books with children.
Wouldn't one of Brenda's Lollipop pillows look great in the chair.
