“I love it, I love it; and who shall dare
To chide me for loving that old arm-chair?”

TIME: 7:39 PM
PLACE: Front porch
SUBJECT: Old wooden chair
This chair sits by my front door and is currently holding my red, white and blue planter. I purchased it at an estate sale almost 10 years ago for $3. It is missing a couple of spindles on the back, it has a horrible paint job that is peeling and it sits a bit wonky. It has character – I love it.
