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

Eliza Cook (1818-1889), U.S. poet. The Old Arm-Chair (l. 1-2). . . Anthology of American Poetry. George Gesner, ed. (1983) Avenel Books.

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.

I love it too! There is something about a chair with character!
