Thrifty finds :: part two
Little owlet is very serious about reading. This is her library, although she can often be seen stealing books off our shelves. Her faves are the leather bound ones, perhaps a little dog eared and with some gold somewhere on the cover. She has a hankering for russian literature, or Dickens, or Keats. For her birthday, she wants a book "with words, but not with pictures". She wants an old phone too. I suspect all the tip shop and garage sale journeys we've made since her birth have made an impression. She's our little vintage lover.
When we saw this, we knew it was hers. Its a beautiful chair we suspect was handmade in the 1940's and its in perfect condition, well maybe a scuff here or there. A little clean up and polish and a little cushion and I'd say it will be perfect. We're planning on painting the room and moving beds around too, so the room will really come together soon, just perfect for little owlet.
