When I was young, my mother kept a combination step stool slash chair in the kitchen. My mother is not very tall, and I am sure this metal and vinyl tool was useful. My great Aunt Bee also had one in her kitchen. I remember sitting and talking with these women while seated upon these chairs. I distinctly remember my mother rolling my hair in rags while I sat upon her chair. I always had wonderful, long bananas curls.
A couple of weeks ago I found a chair just like my mother’s and my aunt’s in a favorite thrift shop. It was a steal at $22.00. I didn’t even hesitate – checked the price, picked it up, and paid for it. This one is a refurbished vintage piece and is as red as it should be. It is just perfect for reaching the top of the pantry, where I hide the M & Ms, and the top shelf where I keep the heart shaped muffin tins. It is also perfect for LibbyLu as she sits, rather impatiently, while I create banana curls for cheer. I don’t use rags, but the sentiment still rings true and pulls my heartstrings.
I hope that you will join Suzanne over at Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingies Thursday. It is so much fun!
