cff LITTLE PINK STOOL | Simple and Serene Living

It's those little things in life that make us happy.

a smile

a wink

a bite of rich dark chocolate

a child's hand in yours

and sometimes it's a little pink stool

You know the one that I mean

the one with the chippy soft pink paint

a stool that is so cracked and worn that no one else wanted it, so you paid three dollars so you could have the honor of bringing it home.

a stool that you just know some young farm girl sat on long ago while she milked the cows. 

and you know that it must have belonged to a girl, because after all it is the softest shade of pink.

so you brought it home and set it down in front of the curtains draped with antique lace.

you set a pretty teacup and saucer on it

you spread an old quilt remnant over it to warm it up

and you said welcome home little pink stool. 


  1. It's absolutely perfect !!!
    3 dollars? Well you lucked out :)
    It would go soooo perfect with a pink dresser I'm working on now!
    Have a great day

  2. It's darling. It reminds me of the one our farmer neighbor sat on to milk the cows.

  3. How cute! It would be pretty with a bit of lace over the side, too. Love the beautiful quilt! Hugs!

  4. and home it is, as if it never left!

  5. Darling stool. Have a wonderful weekend, Laura!

  6. What a bargain! And you've accessorized it so well. Have a peaceful weekend.

  7. Thank you for visiting me, your support and prayer.

  8. Sometimes things just are meant to be ours! This is meant for you for sure!

  9. The well worn look of the stool is charming...I could never repaint it. But you know how we are at times...we do total makeovers. Enjoy your weekend. xoxo,Susie
