I found this pretty little rocker at an outdoor auction way out in the country. It didn’t look this good; it was covered in cobwebs and dirt and a couple of nasty fabric seat covers.
But, it was ONE DOLLAR. I couldn’t believe it either!
The handsome cowboy auctioneer asked if any one wanted a chair for $1 each and I timidly raised my little paper, #59. My first auction purchase. My newest addiction/ hobby.
This was the seat cover I saw when I bought it. It’s needlepoint and may be salvageable after a thourough washing into a pillow or something.
I was surprised to find this nasty fabric underneath the needlepoint cover. Bleech.
The seat cushion had seen better days too, so I got rid of that too.
I happened to have a seat cushion left over from some other something-something. Good grief, it’s a wonder I hold onto so many things that actually become useful later on.
Little Miss Peanut can’t understand why I would want a picture without her in it.
The fabric is something I bought at another estate sale for 20 cents.
