A CLASSIC FOR NEARLY A CENTURY!
Do you collect antiques? I don’t avidly seek them out but I have to admit I’m fascinated by the things of yesteryear. Our grandparents, great grandparents and great great grandparents really knew how to build things that lasted. I can’t say the same for some of the things we have today. On a recent visit to my parents’ home, my parents sat me down to talk about that one day. The day I’m referring to is the day they’ll no longer be around. And as tempted as I was to plug up my ears and shout, “Lalalalalalalala! I can’t hear you,” I knew I had to be an adult and listen. They’re getting older and I’m thankful they’ve planned ahead so that things won’t be so hard for us when they’re gone.
My parents showed me some things they wanted me to have and one of them included a chair that my father had reupholstered when I was in high school. I love this vintage chair. It belonged to my great grandparents! It’s stunning and exudes class. Recipes from these old days exude class too. Like this lemon custard pie. The original poster says her brother loves it 75 years later. That’s about as old as that chair and tastes a lot better too!
