Mama's little helper tea


You may (or may not) have noticed that I have not posted anything since last Wednesday. 
I had intentions of completing projects but my back had other plans. An ice pack, ibuprofen and my chiropractor have been my friends this past week.

While sitting and icing, I've managed to finish The Help.
I like to read the novel before seeing a movie based on the book.

 And this, otherwise not comfortable, chair my friend. It has a nice firm straight back...something none of our the seating seems to provide. 
It's made of elk antlers and is over 100 yrs old. 
I want to recover it in something more interesting than what is currently on it. 
It was my Grandfather's chair. 
He traded an eye exam and glasses for it with a North Dakota Congressman or Governor in the early 1900's. 
I've heard the story both ways. 
Pretty neat, huh! 
It's definitely a conversation piece!!





The reason for the doll in the chair is to show one project that I did complete.

A tiny knit hat for Rosie.

Well my back has had just about enough sitting in front of the computer.
I'll have to go check out the rest of the Tea Tuesday links over at Kimmie's blog later.

gee I am really late for tea...my eyes are recovering from cataract surgery and not dialed in clearly yet...my reading has been limited

REALLY sorry you've had back problems...that is the worst and sure can leave one feeling helpless not to mention the pain

hoping that is history now and life is sweet again!
