Civil War era Rocker...it's not for sale...I don't know why...

This Old Rocker has resided in the Hen House...for years...it's not for sale....don't know why...it's just one of those things...that simply isn't for sale...?
One of it's rockers is much shorter than the other...it has rips...and tares...in the upholstery...the stuffing in the seat is protruding...along with one of it's springs...During the Spring Sale...we had sold several chairs, from the shop...and I was in a pinch...to fill a hole...{God Forbid...there be an Empty Space...in the Rabbit Hole!} A bulb went off.... and we dragged the Old Rocker, from the Hen House...in...I stuffed the hole in the seat with shredded coconut...and poked the spring back...inside the seat... found a darling cushion...that was just meant for it...then took some early woven runners...and fed them through the tares. in the back, of the Old Rocker... It seems to Smile...as it sits there...nestled in closely...with all the tarnished Silver...
It's still...not for sale...
I don't know why...
Love, to ya...

{and...believe it...or not... Many Folks have inquired... about the Old Rocker... but...it's not for sale...

What is it with our love of these tattered old friends...you should see some of the looks I get when my dog grooming customers walk into my home and are greeted with settees and parlor chairs of dubious distinctions...all I can say is SWEET!!!

BTW...the wrens have flown the coop/shop...heehee!!!

Sharon...You and I were Cut from The Same Cloth! I LOVE YOUR STUFF!!! It's 'SOUL'....I'm hearing it again...and again...The Little Rabbit Hole...is Soulful...and that ...my friend...no one can reproduce...I think we are gifted...to be able to feel the aura...
I don't recall where the old Rocker came from...I have had it forever... and...the one thing...I am sure of...it never has...never was...and never will be...
For Sale...?
and...I don't know why....

{I knew they would... but...they'll be back...even the birds dig a Gnarly Rabbit Hole!
