Trash to Treasure

Last weekend, while working at our neighborhood cleanup, I saw a man drive in with this chair in the back of his pickup heading for the scrap metal pile. I took off running after him and was able to rescue the chair before he hurled it out of the truck. It will look nice when the hollyhocks and day lilies that frame it are blooming.

I am so jealous, I have been scouring yard sales for years to get a couple of those chairs. Lucky you!

Trudy, If not sold, you can find a chair just like Dulcy's at Red Books and Chairs on Commercial St. in Springfield. It's a great shop full of vintage charm and cottage style finds!
