Remember Those Parson's Chairs?

About a year ago, I purchased "new" parson's chairs for our front room. (Read all about it here.) This past weekend, I was once again delighted to have them as I needed extra seating around the dining room table for a surprise birthday brunch I hosted for a dear friend. It's always so much fun to set a pretty table and use Robbie's family's old china and have friends around the table.


Prompt #13 in Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbooker's class encouraged us to look back and see what we were doing a year ago by reviewing our blog posts. Isn't it fun to see how a simple thing like purchasing a few extra chairs can lead to a surprise birthday brunch?
