In the Pink


That wooden pink and white polka dot thing was one of the arm rests on the Mama's reading chair. When the Mama passed onward into the great beyond two years ago, I moved the chair outdoors. Other than Molly the Cat that chair couldn't support anyone heavier than the Mama.

For a year, the chair held an umbrella tree in the front yard. Neither looked happy. So, back in March, I decided to take that chair apart and turn the parts into garden art. Pink was one of the Mama's favorite colors, and she liked polka dots, thus the new look for the arm rests.


Curious about the other parts of the chair? Check out my Facebook album The Mama's Reading Chair. You don't need to be a Facebook member, or sign in, to view the album.

Today I'm checking out a new meme for me called Pink Saturday, which is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. To visit other participants, click here. Thank you, Beverly!

  1. It's nice that you didn't get rid of your Mama's reading chair, but kept parts of it to use in your garden. I love the polka dots!

    1. When I first started painting I wasn't at all sure about the polka dots. Now, I can imagine a younger version of the Mama wearing a dress with that design.

    1. Yeah, huh. I don't know if I can achieve that mix of red and white again.

  3. I see the making of a giraffe:) All one needs is the head. I love the pink..it is so bright and cheery and perfect for mama’s garden. I would suggest to look up Giraffe totem.

    1. You're right, Birgit! It looks like an unfinished giraffe. Let's see what I can come up with. Merci, for the idea.

  7. I love how you think outside the box, or chair! ... at first I thought you'd taken up skateboarding in that first picture, with a very skinny skateboard! :)

    1. hahahaha. I wasn't ever good on the skateboard. I can still see that one afternoon of falling over and over on the Older Brother's skateboard. I was in my mid-20s, probably. Maybe if I had started when I was quite young and fearless about falling.

  9. I like that. I like the pink and whimsy, but most of all I like the way you have reminders of your mum all around the garden.
