Favorite things: rocking chair

Photobucket
I have an antique rocking chair that has inlaid mother-of-pearl scrollwork along the top. Some of the little pieces are missing, but I think it just adds character.

I bought it when I was in my very early 20's, somehow stuffing it into my little Fiat 124 Sport Coupe for the ride home. God, I loved driving that car . . .

But back to the subject. I rocked my babies to sleep in this chair, singing my favorite lullabies. Now, that's a happy thought. I feel much better now, thank you.

Beautiful!!!

Somehow I always pegged you as a sports car girl. I guess it takes one to know one!

Wonderful memories, and a super photo. I like very much how you captured the texture of the old varnish.
