Chair (cher)n. That is what I, am working on.

Chair (cher)n. 1. a piece of furniture for one person to sit on, having a back and, usually, four legs.

Everyone that knows me, knows, I love chairs. I could do a speech on the special aspects of a chair. I have worked on every kind of chair there is. When someone asks me, if I have any chairs in my inventory, I really have to laugh. "What kind of chair," is always my first question back to them. Sometimes they reply well I just want a chair for one of my bedrooms. Then the questions really begin.

Would you like an arm chair?

Or maybe something armless, in Pink??

Or maybe a white armless chair in cream with a pink pillow?? 

After not getting a reaction I say "how about something simple"

Too simple?

Too antique?

You don't care for the fabric, but you love the lace?

How about these? Oh too, out doors'ish?

How about something, a little fancier? Oh you want it to have arms, Ok?

Oh ok, you want, fancy with arms but not, a rocker?
I have a perfect one for you but it is really going to cost you a lot.

Look at you it fits your personality perfectly.

I Love to please people. I hated to get rid of this one, but if it makes you happy, that is all that is important.

Here is a sneak peak at what I am working on. I bet after this post you can't guess what it is. 
Can't say it is a horrible snow day, we have 61 and beautiful skies here in Virginia.
It won't last long though.

Wow, I have a real vision for this, more to come this week.
