You Capture :: Let's talk about my dining room again, shall we?

So, the assignment this week for You Capture
gave us choice between hand, green, or chair.
I chose chair, well really, I guess that I chose bench.
When I was a little girl, my parents owned this beautiful bench
that they bought at an auction.
They set it up in our entryway and it was so awesome for pretend play.
It was a school bus, a canoe, a spaceship, and a covered wagon.

When I became an adult, my parents handed it down to me.
Now it sits in my dining room.
(This is the last time I am going to mention my dining room, I swear)
I love to look over and remember the fun times
that I had as a child on that wonderful antique bench.

Mostly what I love about it is the...


sweet flower carvings.


Hey, guess what?

Thanks to Much More Than Mommy
for giving me the oppurtunity to think about why I love my man.

Very awesome bench. The cravings are gorgeous! I love things in the home that are both beautiful and sentimental!

Loved the article about Roger, and you looked beautiful on your wedding day. And Elvis - well that is really cool....

I love how this bench means what it does to you and it really brings to light the chair as more than just the aesthetics.

I love old, antique furniture. I have a beautiful old buffet table, that's huge. Over 100 years old. Unfortunately, it is being stored in the basement bc there's nowhere to put it in this little house (that hopefully sells soon!)

I wish I could find something similar for my daughter's entryway. I've been looking for months.

I wand to surprise her, but it has to be just right.

(Your bench IS just right...)
