SAVE THE CHAIR
This chair has special meaning to my friend, Lil' Miss Frugal. It is a 112 years old. It was carved by a relative of hers way back in 1897 and she will make sure it stays in the family. It proudly sits in the dining room perhaps waiting for another member of the family to occupy its seat. It's just as sturdy as the day it was made. You can tell the spindles are hand carved. They are not perfect like the ones manufactured today. Every piece on that chair is a labor of love.
I am not sure what kind of glue they used back then, but I need to get some. If that glue lasted over 100 years...it is something us paper freaks need to get ahold of!
