Y'know how some women love shoes and just have to buy them?
Well, I love chairs. (I know I'm odd, but I'm mostly harmless:))
When I was a little girl I loved to play with my doll's house. I would spend hours re-arranging the furniture and redesigning the look of the rooms. (Now that I think of it, not much has changed!)
I loved all the tiny furniture and accessories, but my favourite pieces were the chairs.
I love chairs.
There is something very appealing about chairs that I just can't resist. Maybe it's the comfort offered by a favourite chair after a long day at work, or the prospect of sitting in a special chair and visiting with treasured friends. I even have a collection of miniature chairs in our family room:
I also have a large collection of real, adult sized chairs. At last count we had roughly 47 chairs scattered throughout our house and garden!
I will show you a few of our favourites:

This is one of our Van Gogh chairs:
My favourite reading chair:

Our darling daughter's desk chair:
I made Hub-a-Lubs turn the car around outside a second hand shop in Margate, South Africa for this cute hand painted chair:
I don't think I'm entirely alone in my love of chairs. Holly seems to agree in her own fluffy way!
Do you have a favourite chair? I'd love to hear from you if you do!
Today is the first anniversary of the day we moved into our home. Maybe I will celebrate by going chair shopping...After all, you can't have enough chairs.
