I made it to the antique shop. I bought the willow stool , that I had my eye on before Christmas. It's made by a man here in Indiana. The shop owner could not give me a discount on it. She did deal with me on the rocking chair. :):)
I really like that this stool it is very sturdy. One could sit on it, although I planned to use it as a side table to the chair. with a small tray on top. The brick red is an accent color I like.
It's very lodge looking to me. I would one day like a sun room decorated in that style. So for now I will have a corner. The chair is still at the shop Ted will have to haul it in the truck. So I'll have to show you that later. I also wanted Ted to think about making little tables in this same style. Another good thing about this, if I get it all here together and later decide I do not like it....well there's always my daughter and SIL , who seems to have a woodsy look in their family room.
Wishing all a great day. XO
its a beauty!!ReplyDelete
Laurie, I thought the way the lady displayed the stool, chair, fishing creel and old wool jacket made me want it....so After thinking it over till after Christmas...I still liked it. We shall see after it's here...you know how we changed our minds. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
It's very pretty. xoxo SuReplyDelete
Thank you Su....My sense of style has had to change thru the years. I once was inot French Country...now it's basically country..so I thought this could work. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
This is so unusual...a lovely treasure! I know you are happy, happy to have this at home! Good find Susie...love it!ReplyDelete
Betsy, I'll know more once the chair is here. I have thought on it all thru the time since Christmas. :) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
It is very cabin-like! What a unique style. The material is perfect for the twig/branch construction.ReplyDelete
It might have been the material that drew me in. I just loved it. LOL. I will get that rocker here place themt ogether and work on the display and then see what I think. You know we women like to change our minds. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Very pretty! I like willow furniture.ReplyDelete
Kathy, I remember a very long time ago when a man with a truck load of willow chairs stopped by our house trying to sell our parents some of his chairs...we could never afford them...but they looked so very nice. I just really liked this little stool. Hope you and Joe are doing well there in all that snow...take care of each other and please be safe. Blessings to you both, xoxo,SusieDelete
What a great little stool!! Very Adirondack in style - would fit in up here in my mountains for sure!!ReplyDelete
Oh you are right. I am hoping I like it with the chair once I get it here and set up like I want. LOL...I thought of it as something so sweet for my porch...but my whole porch is not under roof...and it would get wet and be ruined...so it has to be inside for now. Hope you are not snowed in . Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I don't know if I've ever seen one like this. It is so pretty and the cushion is great! I know it is a good prop for those tired feet.ReplyDelete
Bonnie, I picked the chair up today...it looks so cute with that stool. Hope you are doing well and all your family, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, I LOVE it!! And I love the cushion too. Looks very western looking to me, like it should be in a lodge in Colorado or something! xxReplyDelete
Kay, I thought it all looked so lodge like when it was in the big display window in town. This little stool and the oak/hickory rocker, a fishing crell with a spring of pine in it , a wool plaid coat draped over the rocker arm and a man's hat like our father wore in the summer (fedora style) I just fell in love with that look. I think it's because I always wanted to stay in a lodge as a kid. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
It's wonderful! I can see why you went back to get it and I'm glad that it was still there.ReplyDelete
Vee, I picked up the rocker today. It looks so sweet with the stool. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I like it as well. I was not a great day around here. Some snow, not much really, about 6 inches, and the Patriots lost. Then again we are spoiled around here.ReplyDelete
Boston Boy, I can't tell how happy I am to hear from you...I was starting to worry.Glad you did not get the biggest snow this year. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Cute stool, I love the colors as well! You will enjoy it! Blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Thank you Cindy. I just have been looking at it for a long time today. LOL...you would think I never bought myself anything before. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Is the cushion hand woven?
I can see why you fell in love with it.
Hi Jackie, I do love this stool...I picked the chair up today...oh boy they look so good together. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
The little stool is cute, Susie. It does have a woodsy look to it. It reminds me of my mother-in-law's home in the mountains, which I love to visit. I like the red color in the stool. :)ReplyDelete
Have a sweet afternoon, Susie.
Sheri, I liked it for that lodge look..it was displayed with the rocker I picked up today. I would dearly loved a sunroom to set them in....but I have to make a nice spot for them . Blessings, love, SusieDelete
cute little stool Susie..Great find..nice colors too..ReplyDelete
Thank you Missy. I just loved how it looked like it came from a lodge. I did get the rocker home today. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh Wow, I can see why you love it and it would fit right in my house. lol Hugs and much love. xoReplyDelete
Hi Susie, My daughter and her husband have gone to a more cabin like style. Probably because the walls in the family room are wood paneling. I have always like that look...and think an enclosed porch would be so cute like that. Right now I just have a spot near the fireplace.:):) Hope you are well, xoxo, SusieDelete
Fabulous find! I'm in the market for a reading chair. I have a few ideas, but I'm looking forward to spending time searching for just the right one.ReplyDelete
Carol, Some time if we aren't in a hurry...it's fun to shop for something we want or need. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Yay for you! I love that cute stool and like the idea that you're going to use it for a side table. Thank you for your visit and sweet words. I'm moving slowly but I'll finally get here for a visit! :)ReplyDelete
Be a sweetie,
Shelia, So glad you are doing better. I will show the chair with the stool. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Now isn't that an interesting piece!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
hi Debbie, I am going to have to visit the man shop that made this little stool. The Antique dealer says she's been to his shop and he has many wonderful pieces. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Great Find! I love the pattern of the material,ReplyDelete
especially on the branch/twig stool. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Jody. I just loved the material too. That is so lodge looking to me. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
The stool really looks comfy. Sometimes we have to start in a corner with our new style and move on from there.ReplyDelete
Linda, It seems I like too many different styles. My house is not a smooth flowing home...I like too many things. I really wanted a sun room in lodge décor. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Even though I don't have that style in my home I really like it! That is the cutest stool and the fabric is perfect on it. I like that willow style of furniture. I remember years ago wanting some of that willow outdoor furniture. I used to see it for sale, but it was too expensive. Looking forward to seeing your new chair!ReplyDelete
Kelly, I would love some out door furniture in the willow. It last forever. I wanted my husband to think of making things like this stool. I did get that rocker home. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
It's really a form of folk art, isn't it? So rustic. Like something you'd see in the Andirondacks. Wonderful piece. Hugs, NancyReplyDelete
What a cute idea to use it as a side table with a tray….I love that!ReplyDelete
