My "nesting" spots

Nicole at Sister's Choice showed us her (formerly) white couch where she is most likely to sit and watch TV, or read, or have a cup of coffee in the morning. She asked to see our favorite place to sit. Well, I have two.

This one is my favorite place to sit if I am reading or doing some sort of handwork. The bottom cushion is so worn that it looks awful but I love the way it wraps around my bum when I sit on it. The quilt thrown over the back is an antique quilt that has seen better days but when I fold it just so, it looks great on the chair.

This one is my favorite when I am watching TV or have guests. I fell in love with this rocker about 25 years ago. I thought it would be a wonderful chair to rock babies in. At that point, I thought I was going to have more children. It didn't work out that way but I was right. It was a wonderful chair for rocking my grandbabies. I love the curve of the back. It feels nice against my spine and the chair seat is carved to fit. It is solid oak and weighs a ton. You don't want to hit your toe on it!

Isn't it strange that my two favorite chairs are absolutely nothing alike?


  1. Both of your chairs look very inviting - and so do the rooms they are in.

  2. I love your favorite places to sit! Both are so inviting and look like a spot where one could while away hours sewing, reading, watching tv. Beautiful!

  3. Your favorite spots look so inviting, and homey. I'll be right over!

  4. Oooh, I'd be happy to park my bum in either of those chairs! :) I'd love to get a better look at some of those quilts there peaking in the picture! :)

  5. Lovely spots. The antique quilt is darling. I love recreating old quilts like that.
