Pretty pussy...great chair find

This photo was taken this afternoon when I caught my cat Ella enjoying a sunny spot on our new chair. I say new chair but I'm sure it is quite old...I'm guessing circa 1920?? I was very happy to find this one sitting out front of a little second hand shop not too far from were we live. The store owner was more than happy to strike a deal and I was able to walk away with an absolute bargin. I have been contemplating sanding it back and re painting, but now I'm not so sure...not wanting to have it looking too slick. It is at present taking pride of place near our front door and the house is looking all the more homely for it. We seem to be going through a weird period of accumulating many chairs in our life. Our house is tiny and we can't fit anymore chairs inside so naturally we have moved onto garden furniture.
It is good to see the end of our table fetish!!

we have always had a weird chair fetish too. When we bought our house about eight years ago and moved into it, there were something like 27 chairs to be moved. One of our friends who was helping said he was going to start throwing them if he saw another...needless to say, I refrain from looking at chairs in op shops these days! That is a great chair though.
