Did you figure out my ridiculously easy quiz from earlier today?
Of course it's a chair.
I didn't expect it was a hard question.
It's a seat-less, dilapidated, lead-paint peeling, eye-sore of a chair.
Isn't it FABULOUS?!?!
I've driven by this chair at a local barn sale for weeks...my brain has been a buzz with excitement for this silly chair, but alas, the barn sale is never open when I drive past so I stare, and drool, and dream.
Yesterday my husband mentioned his plan to hit this very barn sale so I screamed out my desire to have this chair!
I soon got a text message from him - a photo of my chair with the word "Really?".
Um, yes really. Why would I NOT want this fabulous chair? And for only $2?!?! Absolutely!
He obviously didn't share my vision. He couldn't possible know what it was I saw when I looked at this chair. The intricate design, the bright, weathered color...the love it had endured.
I saw beyond it's desperate need of a paint job, its missing seat, and worn exterior. I saw a fabulous photo prop. This is my first photo prop and I can't tell you how excited I am to covet this chair.
So, I immediately dragged Nate out across our squishy yard to the overgrown field in back and plopped him amongst the weeds by my new treasure.
I give you Fabulous Chair + Handsome (fake smile) Boy.
I once resisted the urge to buy a beautiful antique typewriter simply because I envisioned taking gorgeous photographs of pudgy babies tapping its keys. I wanted to capture all its gorgeous intricate details. I should have just bought it.
Oh well...I sure can't wait to use this chair more.
Unfortunately, however, I fear my addiction to "photo props" has officially begun.
