Vintage Settee


Old painted wrought iron pieces are very common in southern yards. Granted they are not the most comfortable, but they are long on charm! I found this vintage piece at the Children's Fresh Air Farm recently. It was in a cool shady spot by a pretty little fountain near the children's garden plots.

Old painted iron benches are pretty common here too, but this is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen!

I love benches, the older the better.. more character with age

And they're darned heavy. This bespeaks Southern to me.

Do you suppose they'd notice if I traded for mine? It's the most beautiful I've seen.

I'm very fond of iron benches and this is no exception.

OW! It looks like it would hurt. Give me my chaise lounge, please.
