I'm on a mission...

Yeah, I know. This is like my 12,000th mission since the beginning of the year.

I've been trying to figure out what kind of chair I would like in my keeping room. Right now I have the Shaker Style rocker my hubs bought me and an antique platform rocker.
The rocker my hubs bought me is not only pretty, it's very comfortable. So that's definitely staying. Besides, he picked it our for me. I could never get rid of it.

I adore the antique platform rocker. But jeepers, you have to be knee-high to a grasshopper or the Travelocity Gnome to sit in it comfortably. I don't think anyone was taller than 4' back then.

So in my search I came across this!!!
**Insert Angels Singing**


It's a vintage Hitchcock rocker in mint condition. Man, this colonial style rocker is screaming, "I want to live at your house!!"
But the price tag is making the presidents in my wallet scream even louder, "That's a little pricy there, Mrs. Countryfolk!" (I know they're right. Hmpf!)

I've found one on Craigslist, but it's in Connecticut. (That's where the Hitchcock Chair Company originated)
I can't talk my hubs into taking another road trip, especially for a rocking chair. (Especially at $4.11 a gallon too!) What he went through to pick up that dining room set, I'm surprised he's still married to me.

So unless I'm able to twitch my nose, I don't see that rocker appearing in my keeping room anytime soon.

But I'll keep searching...

:> )

Happy Tuesday!

Remember to watch the presidential debate tonight.

Francine, I'm a rocker nut too!
I have them all over.
I also have my gramma's rocker. I remember her sitting in it all the time when I was a little girl. ♥
