Last, do you remember how I had something really interesting to tell you about a chair my grandma has? Well, here's the story... A friend of my Granny Maude's (my grandma's mom) just disappeared. No one knows if he died, was murdered, etc., he was just gone. When the man's son was going through the his possessions, he decided to give this chair to Granny Maude. She thought it was the ugliest thing she'd ever seen, so she gave it to my grandma. I think we've all had our pictures taken in this chair over the years, and everyone has wondered where it came from since it's so unique. My dad and stepmom finally decided to take it to a high end antiques dealer to get more info. They discovered it came out of a castle, is from royalty (not king, but duke or count), was commissioned most likely for the children, is from England, was made from hand in the early 1800's, is one of a set of probably 10 or 12, and at first glance could be worth $15,000 or more. Crazy right?!?!? My dad got in touch with an antique furniture dealer in England who is going to study it more to provide some more details, so I can't wait!
If you want to play the two things game, go link up on Kassi's blog. I'll have pictures of my fun antiquing day coming Thursday, and I can't wait to share them!
