Duck Egg Chair

Posted by on Jul 15, 2013 in chalk paint | 15 comments

My mom is one of my best friends.

She came to visit for a couple of days this week,

(with her cooler full of homemade applesauce for my girls)

When you think of the stereo-typical grandmother,

you would picture my mother.

She goes to the beauty shop once a week to get her hair done.

She wears a rain bonnet when it rains.

She loves to cook, and always has homemade cookies on hand.

And, she is funny. . .

Without meaning to be. . .

So have a seat here in my new Duck Egg blue chair

Β and let me tell you why she makes my family smile.

Duck Egg Chair @ DaisyMaeBelle

This sweet lady once thought she was locked out of her car because the remote on her keyless fob wasn’t working.

She came to my dad all if a tither.

She forgot that she could still use the key πŸ™‚

When shopping with my girls this week, she asked my Anna Belle what size slacks she wore.

Anna Belle (who is 12) wasn’t sure what slacks were?!

She DVR’s all of the episodes of Duck Dynasty.

She wishes she drove a Hummer.

And, she drives like someone out of Nascar.

Yet, I wouldn’t change a thing about her.

And, I hope I am just like her when I grow up.

Locking myself out of my car. . .

Asking my granddaughter’s what size slacks they wear. . .

And, being the best mom a girl could ask for πŸ™‚

So, this post full of smiles

is brought to you by my sweet mother.

Whose favorite color happens to be blue.

Life to the full!

  4. After meeting you and now hearing about your Mom, I can tell you, Melissa, you are just like your Mom!! All the sweet stuff! Maybe not so naive…but that’s okay…you have to remember, your Mom came from a different era where a car could only be opened with a key and women wore slacks and pant suits! Man I remember the pant suits my Mom used to wear. Oh, and she wore a house dress. Remember those?! ha ha – good times! – Karen

  8. I just got some duck egg and haven’t tried it yet, can’t wait. Your chair is just adorable!

  9. Great post. The use of the pics as a backdrop to your stories was very effective. Usually, it’s just ” here’s a chair I re-did”
    blah blah, and then another post with why we love our mothers. Very good use of both themes. Nice job, πŸ™‚ Also enjoyed the pics!

  10. I love the chair and I loved the story about your mom that you shared with the post!

  11. hi Melissa, I found your blog on MMS, and I love the chair. But i love even more what you have said about your mum. My mum died nearly a year ago and I miss her so much so it’s so lovely hearing that you treasure yours. have a great weekend

  12. Love your chair Melissa! Duck Egg is one of my favorite colors. I actually used a toned down version of it for our backdoor this week. Thanx for partying at my place!

  13. What a wonderful daughter you are Melissa. Wish my kids felt that way about me. Ah well, we all can’t be great. I’m really happy for your Mom you feel that way about her. She’s a lucky lady in many ways. Hey you’re nice to me.
    Your Mom can’t be as old as I am but she sounds like it, innocent. She sounds so nice I’d like to have her for a friend. Think she has any extra cookies? lol. Home made applesauce, wow didn’t know people still made that.

  14. Ooops, sorry I forgot to tell you I love your duck egg chair, very nice, soft and comfy looking too.

  15. Where can I get some of that yummy brown material you have in the frame with the ironstone plates? Love it! By the way, your mom sounds like mine!
