A wicker courting chair

You're not going to believe what I found curbside the other day when I was on my way to the grocery store. I spotted this wicker chair set out for the trash only a block away from our house, and I couldn't believe my eyes! Since I couldn't pull over and I was so excited I almost lost control of the car, I circled the block and came back then pulled off the side of the road.



I got out of the car and walked over to this beauty. Oh, I loved it! So now I just have to get it in the car. Easier said then done. I tried the trunk, the back seat and the front seat. Wouldn't fit. Ok, I'll just call dear hubby (and since I could see our house from where I was standing) I'm sure he will come and carry it home for me.




And that's exactly what he did. Sweet hubby carried it on his back all the way home.




And now I have this gorgeous wicker courting chair (sometimes called a kissing chair) sitting on the back porch until I decide where I want to put it. I have plans to paint it too.


This has to be one of my best finds. I'm absolutely thrilled with it!!
