The twirly chairs

On Tuesdays, I post a picture and just a few words.

twirly chairs

Yesterday, I took Sonia and Zoe and a friend out to run some errands, and we stopped for a little snack first.   The girls enjoyed the snack, but I think the twirly chairs may have been equally as delightful.

I love how old school they are…a blast from the past.

One of our errands afterward was shorts shopping for Sonia and Zoe.   Somehow, Sonia doesn’t fit into any of Lisey’s summer short/capri hand-me-downs, so she had nothing.

And since Sonia and Zoe take pretty much the same size in shorts, there’s nothing to hand down to Zoe, so she was in need too.

Luckily, they’re both in pretty good shape in the shirt department, though, so after our shorts shopping trip yesterday, I think they are all set for summer weather.

(In case you’re curious, I bought them brand new shorts. Shorts are not an item I routinely have luck finding second-hand!   Shirts, dresses, and jeans?   Yup. Shorts? Nope.)

Love those carefree days of summer from when I was a young girl. Ice cream shoppes, peach and strawberry pickins, backyard BBQs, cool mornings and hot days, and day-dreaming. Lots and lots of day-dreaming.

Funny how a special snack makes a shopping much more tolerable :)

Love the stools, too. I can't find any used shorts for myself, either. I am a grandmother -- I do NOT want tiny shorts with 1/2 inch long "legs," thank you. Which is pretty much all I find! Years ago I took my daughter to a museum that had a "1950's" house set up, completely stocked. It was great, and she was fascinated, and the most fascinating thing to her was the metal ice cube tray. It had a neat handle! It was metal! I told her they were a different story when one was trying to get ice out of them -- hands sticking to metal, running water over the bottom to make them come out, the metal handle cutting into the palms... The docent in the kitchen laughed out loud and said to me, "Yeah, you've used them alright!"

I agree, dresses seem much easier to hand down than shorts. I am so relieved that our camp provides logo tees for the summer, so basically all I had to do was buy shorts, and enough dresses, etc. fit from last year or had been received as gifts or hand-me-downs that we have plenty of things to wear on the weekends...

It's funny how kids are absolutely fascinated by things we adults find mundane or take for granted. I'm trying to bring a little bit of that magic back as I age. :)

My kids also thought manual pencil sharpeners were amazing the first time they saw them. And I remember Sonia being quite enamored with the "really cool" windows in my mom's old car (They were manual. Ha.)
