Like many of us as we grow older, he had some lines... some wrinkles... and even a little break or two from the past.
But the price couldn't be beat! Just three dollars and the only "work" I plan for him is a little repair for the seat that is cracked.
He's now in my dining room with his big brother, this stool from my grandmother. See the family resemblance?
Big brother holds a stack of vintage linen and lace tablecloths and runners. I'm planning to put a little something on top of him... but with our big dogs it needs to be unbreakable. I'm thinking something metal perhaps on top of little brother?
And speaking of little brothers... well that girl with the birthday a few days ago? Well she too has a little brother... one with a birthday just 3 short days after hers... Two years and three days apart in age that is. He had a big year in 2012 as well. You may remember he purchased his first house in January and moved in after a little cosmetic work... Creating my "empty nest".
His little bungalow got a paint job this summer. Pale green with white trim. Of course being a newly turned 23 year old little brother living on his own... well the place could use a few things still... like curtains!
The big sister realized her little brother cleans up pretty well...
But I think he prefers this look a little more...
Sweatshirt, work pants, a hat and a tractor that is.
So a little belated birthday wish from me... to my son.
And little brothers of all kinds.
