Saturday Snapshot– Big Comfy Chair

March 3, 2012 at 1:06 pm 29 comments

We have a wedding later this year in our family. Last Saturday, my daughter (who will be the bride), her fiance’s mother, and I went shopping for dresses for the wedding. While we were out, we looked around in a few decorating shops. My daughter took this one of me in a tall chair. Was it the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland who sat such a tall chair? I also thought of a new version of the Big Comfy Couch, a children’s program on television a while ago. My daughter took this photo with her phone and sent it afterwards. Oh, yes, and it was a successful day for me!

 

Saturday meme At Home With Books: Post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) has taken. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you.

      Yes, now there was another comparison I didn’t think of that day. And to think I’ve told that story recently. Thanks for stopping by, Susan.

    That’s hilarious. I wonder if those chairs are supposed to be comfortable or ridiculous. Here’s Mine

      Hi Paulita,

      I don’t know what’s meant, but it was fun.

      I couldn’t post a comment on your pic but here it is:
      A strange photo with the boy’s head in the critter’s mouth. Like the one with the gondola on the canal.

    What a fun photo. Every time you look at it will remind you of what a great day you had with your daughter.

      Thanks, Kaye, I will.

      My daughter took a photo of her mother-in-law to be in that chair as well, so we each have a similar photo. :)

      Thanks, Nise’. We had a good time and went out to Zoup for lunch afterwards. Glad to have the dress now and next will be shoes. :)

    That would be a really fun chair to have in your house! Such a conversation piece — and it looks comfortable.

      Yes, it certainly would be a conversation piece. At least, my feet touched the floor unlike the gal on the big comfy couch!

    Wow, that is one huge chair!

      It sure is. We had a good chuckle about that. I felt pretty small in it.

    Now that is certainly different. Furniture for extra tall people like basketball players!

    I guess that’s who they’re for. Basketball players will want footstools too. :)

      And I felt small in it too, but I could put my feet on the floor. Thanks for stopping by.

    How fun! I can’t imagine what decor that chair would go with…

      Would one need two chairs like this? I didn’t check the price, because I didn’t need to know. It was quite an elegant chair. Victorian or later?

    That’s such a cool chair!! I’d love to have one!

      The question, I guess, would be where to put such a chair.

    You look like a kid in that big chair. I think it was The Mad Hatter who had one like that. Of course, he had the tall hat to go with it :-)

      Maybe I should find a hat and go back for a new picture. What do you think? Maybe a Cat in the Hat pic instead. ;)

    What a fun pic. I’m glad you had a successful shopping trip too!

    We just couldn’t resist trying out the chair.

    Yes, I’m happy that I have a dress for the wedding. The next will be shoe shopping, but not for a bit yet.

    Thanks for stopping by.

      We were having a good time and what’s not to smile about sitting in a chair like that. :)
