We went to Pop Pop’s this morning so Shane could help him out and paint his back porch for him. While there, I inherited three of Gramma’s old mixing bowls, two lazy susans, a gold clock (broken but still cool) and an expired can of Pam.
Shane is painting our front porch right now, and it has me wondering what I want to do with it. I have my amaryllis out there *which actually has five big blooms now* and I know I want to add a chair. What I’m torn about is what kind of chair. Since my first trip there, I’ve wanted a Cracker Barrel rocking chair. So comfy and they look so welcoming. But – our front porch is absolutely tiny, so there is only enough room for one chair. One rocking chair? I know Florida is different from some of the other states, but we’re still “Southern” and I don’t know how I feel about only one rocking chair! I picture two rocking chairs with a table in between and a pitcher of ice-cold lemonade.
So if I can’t have my rocking chair dream, the next best thing would be a bistro set. That too, sadly, has it’s drawbacks. There’s plenty of room for a small bistro set, but then I’d have to move my plants out. Not gonna happen.
I’m back to square one in looking for a single chair that would still be inviting. Even though I love the look of colorful summer cushions, it just isn’t practical for an area prone to spiders. Who wants to sit on a chair and have an unwelcome visitor under their tush? I could get one of the $8.50 plastic ones, but sometimes bargains just don’t cut it.
What I’m leaning towards right now is this one: Click Me! Two of them would be overkill, so one is perfect. It has a charming amount of whimsy. It gets great reviews and can double as a plant stand.
