What is it with me and antique $8.00 chairs? We came home with another bit from the past. So homey and charming. And steadfast to have lasted all these years. I like those qualities.
It has a damaged seat, although a sturdy attempt at repairs left it pretty solid. I'm thinking of sewing a ruffled cushion over foam....to cover this corner. When I get some energy. Which is not happening this week, but one of these days it will. Surely.
I was just over at Amazon browsing the free e-books for a few of the 'Fireside' books. When the book becomes so old it can be considered public domain. I really enjoyed one by Amy LeFeuvre, called 'Teddy's Button'. Free and what a sweet story, with spiritial lessons throughout.
Another author I'm enjoying is Hesba Stretton. She wrote many, many books in the 1800's. Her Father owned a bookstore and her Mother was a devout Christian, which influenced Hesba's writings in a precious way, as you might imagine. I just came across this bit over at Amazon that told that Hesba Stretton was really a pen name used by Sarah Smith. Hesba is a nicer author's name I think...quaint and catchy at the same time.
I just started reading 'A Thorny Path' by her and the main character's name is Hagar. How's that name to get your interest! It did mine anyway. The dumb thing I did was actually buy this one..(after downloading about 8 free books of hers) and let it download to my pc instead of the Kindle. Whaaaaa, thats what happens to be sleepy ...sleepy, on a grey November day.
Update! I went to Amazon....'Manage your Kindle' and easily sent the book 'A Thorny Path' to my Kindle app. amazingly easy. =)
