Have A Seat

I meet once a month for rug hooking at a quilt store in a small town. This town usually has flower baskets decorating the sidewalks on Main Street, but because of the poor economy and budget constraints they couldn't afford them this summer. Instead, a local gal offered the use of her vintage chair collection to dress up the downtown area. I thought they were very picturesque and added a lot to the ambiance of the shopping experience in front of the participating stores. Wouldn't you just love to sit for a minute and rest in some of these while walking down the street?  Here are some pictures I snapped on Tuesday, in no particular order.

Darling! Is this in Brigham City? Love your gameboards. I'm collecting a few to use in the basement. I didn't know you needlepunched. Talk to Kay, she bought a kit and is totally frustrated! Mimi
