The Beautiful Rocking Chair

John David gave me one of my Christmas presents on Friday, December 14! It is something that he couldn't have hidden from me in a closet or a corner so he had to give it to me! He let me sleep in and went and got it and when I woke up I went in the living room and there was my beautiful rocking chair! It was so exciting!

Every time we go to antique and thrift stores, I look at rocking chairs. I always ask if I can have one but John David always tells me we don't have any room for a rocking chair! So it was a complete surprise that he actually bought me a rocking chair.

The chair is made in Woodbury Tennessee and is called the Woods of Tennessee. This particular chair has 10 different types of wood in it. White Ash, Osage Orange, Red Cedar, Black Walnut, White Hickory, Wormy Maple, Wild Cherry, Red Oak, Poplar, and White Oak. He got it from Putnam Farmers Cooperative here in Cookeville.

After our early "Christmas morning" we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast, which was a nice breakfast date!!

My beautiful chair, I love the black walnut arms and front posts!

The best husband ever and me with my beautiful rocker!!
