The apple doesn't fall...

A while back I found this adorable bench at a second hand shop. Something about it told me I HAD to have it for my entry hall.

So I waited three weeks until it came down in price, then snatched it up. I still didn't know why it was instant love until I was at my moms and saw this...

Honestly, I never realized that they were the same motif. (a little hard to see in the top picture)

Benches are great for many things like:

  • a vase of flowers
  • a stack of books
  • a comfy cushion and throw

But most of all, when guests drop in and I say, "Come on in and sit down" they never want to go into the living room or family room (maybe they think they are intruding ~ never) so we used to just stand in the entry hall. Now there is conventiently a cute bench to sit on!

Isn't it funny how we fight so hard to not be like our parents, but in the end we find we have a lot of the same tastes as them? The bench is beautiful!!!
