K.I.S.S. (Garden Chairs at the Garden Gallery sale)


This will be the last feature in the garden gallery feature series. 

Bobbi and Sandy have their sale annually and if you wish to be on the mailing list please contact them at

You really must attend their sale if you possibly can!  The photos just don’t do it justice.

There were many themed garden chairs at the sale. 

I loved them all, but this one was my very favorite.

I love the tart tin flowers on the back, and the fact that they didn’t cut the seat or alter the patina of this lovely rocker.

I also love the McCoy mixing bowl used as a flower pot.

The red watering can on this chair was a nice touch with the painted detail on the legs of this chair.

The cherub and the gold touches are heavenly!

Ok, this one was most intriguing.  You have to look really close to see what it’s made up of.

garden gallery 036That’s a pitchfork with the wooden balls on the end of the prongs, a hoe and a shovel.  All tied together with an old tractor seat mounted on a scrolled  base (maybe a vanity stool?). 

It had a perfectly rusty patina.

The clock chair is so elegant.

This is so bright and colorful  It made me think at once of Dawn from WackyWhimsy.  She would love this! She’s still on a blogging break and I’m really missing her.

The blue butterflies just jump right out from the pale green chair.

Hope you all enjoyed the garden chairs as much as I did.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with next year!
