I love this Blake lounge chair from Crate and Barrel. It's handcrafted of solid teak and natural rattan. The teak has a beautiful worn gray finish making this chair feel vintage. The back and arms on this chair are a handwoven natural rattan which adds a nice texture juxtaposed against the teak wood.
I Will Follow You Anywhere
My sweet friend Jennifer was kind enough to invite me to join her for her weekly antique shopping excursions. As we walked around the flea market, I noticed Jennifer down on her knee inspecting this wonderful antique. “That Jennifer , she knows her stuff, she likes things that are old and "have a story." At first glance I fell in love with the vintage markings, and wondered what story goes with this container???Jennifer graciously allowed me to purchase the container for a mere $20.00. Once I brought it to it’s new home several friends and family said, “ My grandmother had a container just like that!” My mom confirmed their recollections, “Could be a storage container for misc food items. I remember my grandma had these and she put olives, pickles, etc. in them - in the days before refrigerators, these thick crocks helped to keep the food cool, especially when stored in a cellar or basement.” Wow this crock is reeeeally old! I had my story!
Vintage markings I fell in love with! Since pickles are now stored in the refrigerator and I don't have a cellar. I have other plans for this crock.
The clay feet seen below are available at most nurseries and Home Depot. Aren't they cute ??
These useful clay feet are little ledges for outdoor pottery. I just love them, thanks for the tip, mom!!!
Here I am all dressed up in my new high heels!!!!
