New Life to old Chairs

Don' t you just love these chairs. It is always amazing what fresh paint and new fabric can do. The first two pictures are chairs I have rescued from the trash. They both required a little work but look great now. I think they have many more good years in them.

This chair was found in Barcelona,Spain near a dumpster
with crooked legs and bad finish.

I found this chair on the side of the road
 in the Hill Country of Texas painted white.

This chair was purchased at an auction and
just needed some TLC.

This chair has been in my husband's family
for years, it just needed new cane bottom.

Czechoslovakian Pottery

I have been collecting Czech pottery for over twenty five years. I love the vibrant colors and the hand painted designs. I traveled to Prague a couple of years ago in search of some pieces to add to my collection. I really enjoyed the antique stores in Prague. The search was as thrilling as actually locating a piece.
