Vintage Highchair And Tea

Happy New Year everyone!
While putting away some of my Christmas decorations I decided to have one last cup of tea using my December teacup.  I set it down on my vintage highchair and took a few pictures to share.
My Mom got the highchair over 70 years ago and I've been the proud owner for at least 30 years.  The highchair had many coats of paint on it.  To my surprise when I stripped it in the 80's the beautiful design of the back showed up!  The highchair served well for my five grandchildren and how holds teddy bears and indoor plants.
Thankyou for visiting,
Nancy

Hi Nancy,
What a beautiful high chair! I bet it could tell some stories. Love the bear and the teacup too. The little guys sitting in the background are also cute!
Thank you for stopping by for tea and Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.

Blessings,
Sandi

The high chair is wonderful (what wonderful memories) and the teddy looks very happy! Lovely December teacup. Happy Tea Day and Happy New Year!

The highchair is in good condition, using it for a plant holder is a great idea.
Thanks for sharing your Christmas teacup and sassy bear.

I love the sentiment of old high chairs. I have one too. Much simpler than yours. I will always want one nearby! Thanks so much for letting me know you came by!

Can you imagine keeping an ol' plastic high chair on display??! No Way! Not when they made such beautiful wooden ones as yours. It's fabulous!
