Hosie's chair~

The man in the picture is showing off some of his wood working crafts.  Hosie was his name and he was my dad's uncle.  He loved making things.  I can only imagine the craft supplies back in the 30's, pretty much what you could find in the tool shed was what you had to craft with.

He made this chair for my dad when dad was a very young boy.   My dad remembered it was painted baby blue so he restored the chair and painted it baby blue, like he remembered.  I love stories like this!  My grand girls have played with this chair putting their dolls and teddy bear in it.  My grand boys would sit in it.  My dad loved seeing the grands play with his chair!!!  Sweet memories!!!!

  3. OOO beautiful memory - I smell a scrapbook page. My DH did the same for his first grandson - restored his rocking chair. I documented it and even made a "book" about it for Owen.
