Default Old family rocking chair

Inspired by all the lovely work being shown I decided to post a few of mine. This old chair came from my husbands family home - his aunt, she is 85, says she remembers it being her mothers chair when she was a child!

That's certainly a family heirloom to be proud of Eily and looks like it will go on for many more generations. They don't make furniture like that anymore.
