I'm A Purist @ Heart

Truly I am.
Although I'm sure that point could be argued since I paint,
saw, reupholster, alter, and repurpose with the best of 'em.

Still, when I run across a piece like this I am reminded just why I
fell in love with antiques.

Yeah, it's a grandmother's chair, but it's old so shouldn't it be?
I adore the old silk brocade fabric....in excellent condition.

I love the rich carvings and the darkness of the wood.
I adore it all. 

If you love textiles, the richness of the fabric feeds your senses....

Will it sell this way?......who knows.
Will it stay this way?.....who knows.
Will it end up white and reupholstered.....who really knows.

What I do know is for now I'm embracing it for exactly what it is...
and that is old,
and original
and beautiful.
and that's the purist in me :)

Thanks for stopping by today,
You know I love it when you come.

Happy Day! 


  1. I love this chair. The upholstery looks like its in really good condition too. Fabulous color!

  2. Your picture caught my eye because my MIL had a chair almost identical to this! What fun! You did find a treasure!

  3. Some of the older furniture is much nicer than the new. Has more character to it.
