have a seat

vintage chair

I went to a few antique stores with my neighbor and sewing  partner on Sunday afternoon. I was in search of some vintage chairs and so happy to find this cute little vintage child's folding chair. It is a perfect replacement for the kids not quite so stylish bean bag chair that fell victim to the very unpleasant symptoms of the stomach flu that invaded our family during the week of Jeremy's finals, this past December.  The fabric ball sitting next the chair was Lincoln's birthday present from us for his first birthday. I made it using the pattern and instructions from Anna Maria Horner's book, Seams To Me.  It turns out it is the perfect ball to throw around in an upstairs apartment without disturbing our neighbors below. 

My other little purchase from the day was a cute little science beaker-I am a sucker for science lab equipment.
