For the Love of Aprons

I will never cut the apron strings
of my mother.

Seriously, this boy and his dad love
to lay on the ground.  It looks uncomfortable
even to Rose kitty, who will have none of it.
She does rule over all she surveys, though.

The little chair Rose is sitting on?
Jacob and I painted two, this one with
the black seat is his, while I was on maternity
leave after having Holly.  It was one of our
projects, one of the lasting memories
we visit every day.  Nothing fancy,
painted with the glorious energy of a little
boy.  What was important was to simply
do and have fun.  Perfection was not required.

These little chairs have survived nearly
nine years of kid chaos.  Mr. Lee, at well
over 300 pounds, has used these little
treasures as stepping stools for all kinds
of  handiness.

Useful things are among my favorites.
Aprons and chairs, of all sizes, are
collected here at the Pumpkin Cottage.
