A Week of Nana - day one


Cindy from Bug and Pop has come up with a great theme for this week...... A Week of Nana...

When my nana died a few years back, I received her electric recliner chair. It lives in my loungeroom, in front of the bookcase. The original fabric is not very attractive, so I have it covered with a nice throw rug that I found at the oppy years ago.

When you take the throw rug away, you can see the colour that nana used in her hair.... it's somewhere between blue and purple. I think that's the most special thing about the chair.....

Gosh, lovely rug! I can see why you'd want to cover the hair colour... but you know it's there, that's the nice thing.

if i put blue in my hair at my age people would say i'm far to old for "that look" but when i am old it will all of a sudden BE ok to put blue or purple or even a pink....go figure...
love the special look to the chair it would make me feel warm and fuzzy if it was my grandmas...

I love this so much... the fact that a mauve stain can represent so much.

Oh I miss her blue hair.
She always had bright lipstick as well. And pantyhose every day, she was a hoot!
