Got to love surprises !

A couple of years ago, while checking out the antique stores at Paddington (Brisbane)

my daughter and I saw a marshmallowy pink cane chair, of 50's era.  It caught my eye, but it had to stay there that day.  Next time we went there of course the chair had gone.  So I didnt need to dream of sitting in "my" pink cane chair, doing my stitching projects, because there was no chair.

Last night, I walked into my garage/sewing room, and there was MY pink cane chair.  Yes, the exact same one!!!!  (dont check out the grotty floor).
It is!!!  The woman who purchased it has to downsize and had put it for sale on ebay.  (Sometimes you have to love ebay!!!)  My daughter spotted it, alerted my hubby and the rest is history.

What is even better is that a few months after missing out on that chair, I bought a chair from the same store to use at my computer.  I love its shabby pinkness, and dont mind at all that it is just a little wobbly.

Check them out sitting together.  A match that was meant to be.

Yes.  Just perfect, especially when I make a cushion for it.

What luck! You are so fortunate that your loved ones looked on line at just the right time - It looks like a very comfy chair to sit in
