Recently my friend, Mary, wrote about her comfort of home in her favorite chair. She encouraged her readers to share their chair. Here is my chair. It sits in my office/studio. Most often Joey sits there waiting for me to feed him or taking a nap, but late at night when I can't sleep you can find me here reading.
I found this chair at an estate sale about 40 years ago. It needed to be reupholstered, as the horsehair brown upholstery was quite worn. I paid $35. for it. It was so comfortable to sit in, but the bottom of the seat was also falling to the ground. For many years it sat in our garage waiting, but neglected. My daughter took it to her little home full of cats and they totally destroyed it. Sadly I put it out to sell at a garage sale, but of course no one wanted it. Back in the garage it went. Then about 7 years ago I said either we take it to the dump or have it upholstered and rebuilt. I found someone that could give it the love it needed. He said it was over 100 years old. Now it sits in a place of honor where I can enjoy the comfort of this old chair and love it as it deserves to be loved.
This is my chair of comfort, a "comfort of home". Joey and I both love it.
I loved it all along, that is why I couldn't release it.
Do you have a chair you love, a chair that is your "comfort of home"?

Happy weekend, dear friends!
I will be away from my computer next Monday, but I will return soon. Take care!
