Another One Of My Collections

I have always been draw to little chairs, and I don't know why.  I just noticed one day that I had several of them and decided to group them together.
These are grouped together in a corner of one of the bedrooms. The red one is my little red rocker that I got as a gift for my 5th birthday.  So that would make it 51 years old this December.  The slatted birch chair I bought years ago at Freds.  It folds up flat.  The others I have bought at auctions and estate sales. 
Tyler Wentworth sits regally in this chair on the nightstand.

And these are on the wall directly above the ones in the first picture.
They make me think of a story:
Many years ago my friend Sheila and I were talking about how there used to be country music shows about once a month in our little town.  She remembers Peggy Sue, Loretta Lynn's sister performing and that her dressing area was in the kindergarten room.  She had brought  her daughter Darletta with her on this particular occasion. Apparently Peggy Sue had a very thick country accent and Sheila remembers her saying...Daaarrrrletta jes lookit all them little cheers.
For years after Sheila telling me that story, every time we passed each other in the hall we would say..Daaarrrrletta!!! jes lookit all them little cheers!
I think I'm going to paint that saying on a canvas and hang it on the wall under those little cheers.....

Sang it Peggy!!

Peggy Sue is a great singer! I like her orange outfit too.
As for your collection of little chairs - they are cute and "with character".

Your collection of chairs is impressive. I really like your idea to make the canvas for the wall with the great quote on it :-)

The little chairs on your wall are darling. I saw a child's chair hanging on the wall of a restaurant years ago. I had a similar one at home and decided to put it on one of our walls when we got home. Somehow though, at our house, it only looked like a chair hanging on a wall - not nearly as cute as in the restaurant or on your wall.

Little cheers are cute. I think the canvas with the saying will go really well with the chairs. We have about 4 little antique cheers in our house in different areas. Peace

LOVE what you have done with the chairs! I collect them, too...needless to say a lot of my dolls have their own seating. Nice collection!
