The week started out with this wicker set for the front porch.

This morning we bought a neat antique reclining morris chair, supposedly from the early 1900s. Despite the unattractive upholstery, we both thought this chair was too cool to pass up! Sharon will be replacing the fabric since it's surely not original anyway. (Yet another fabric project for Sharon!)
Our plan is to pair this with the Stickley rocking chair in the parlor and sell off the two over-sized modern mission recliners. The recliners are just too large for the space; they make it feel crowded in that tiny room.
