      Thanks, Janet! It did feel like a special find, and a bit magical that I came across the ad before the string of potential buyers whose comments followed mine: “If she doesn’t take them, pick meeeee!” I hope they find what they’re looking for, too.

      Thanks, Janet. I’d love to sit a spell with you someday and talk about our creative inspirations/projects.

    I wish I were there to make beautiful soft rounded cushions to match your memories.

      Oh, wouldn’t that be a special gift!!!! Even more lovely, to sit together in my backyard, sipping coffee and gliding away the afternoon.

    as always, beautifully told. I have similar memories of my grandparents’ house. There was a porch swing, a bench (for snapping beans), and a couple of rocking chairs. I knew when I grew up I was going to need rocking chairs, and front porch swings… and a joggling board. (but “that” story will make it some time this week onto my blog, LOL) For you… what a wonderful find! And I have no doubt, with your boundless creativity that they will be transformed into something magical where you will relive old memories…and create new ones.

      I can’t wait to read about your grandparents’ joggling board. Confession: I don’t even know what that is, but boy am I curious!

      Thanks for your confidence in my creativity. I’ll clean them up, for sure. But after that…well, I think I’ll just let them get settled into my home before changing their appearance. Paint, stain, sand down the rough spots and letting them age gracefully? It’ll come to me…maybe while I’m gliding.

      Someday, I want to hear about his cottage. Did he sit on the porch of an evening, watching the cars go by? What treasures did he display in his home…?
