~ A Pretty Place ~



Does this look like a pretty place to pull up a chair and take a break. I am love with old cane chairs. Especially ones with a hint of colour left on them. I own a couple of them. Even though they are a little wobbly and rough I just love to sit in them and stare at the ocean. I think they are a necessity for that relaxed "coastal/country living" style .

  4. I agree. I passed up the most beautiful vintage light green wicker chair with a barkcloth cushion for only $40.00 yesterday at the flea market all because I had absolutely no place for it:(

  38. I could kick myself for ever getting rid of my vintage wicker. When we moved, I knew we were going "modern" so I let them go but I've since figured out, comfort and classic design will go with anything. Darn it.
