My RED High Chair

It's Rednesday over at Sue's It's a Very Cherry World, and I have something red I'd like to share. :)
This is my high chair that I just painted red. It has been many colors through the years, because you see, it's VERY OLD. This highchair was my mom's when she was little, and my mom is 94 years old.



My sister, brother and me used it when we were little, and now my granddaughters use it when they come over. Most recently, it was green. In my first house, it was a deep blue (that's when "Country" was in. :) I love it this red color because it matches my red kitchen, plus, I LOVE RED. :)
Thanks for visiting me. I love it when you drop by! :)

I am so in love with your header! It's my idea of the perfect porch! I love how that beautiful old highchair has travelled with you wherever you go. And it's the perfect shade of red. For now, right?! What a wonderful family heirloom!
Happy REDnesday!

Hello! It's nice to meet you! I LOVE that little red high chair. I think it's wonderful that you still have it in your family. I have an old one that is yellow for my grandchildren, but it's not from our family.

I scrolled down and saw your yellow and blue post! Oh my! I'm inspired and want to do a room in those cheery colors!

I hope you'll come by and visit me sometime.
