This is a gift to my great granddaughter from LJ Doug Scott. Thank you very much, Doug. This is a beautifully designed and crafted chair.

As you can see McKinlee is very happy with it!! She did not want to leave it!

Cheers, Jim

Lovely Chair and obviously a very generous friend.
Nice one Jim, and thank you for your kind comment on my recent Blog.
It means a lot to get a comment from someone that has been around here on LJs for such a long time.
Thank you.

Beautiful little chair. The indentation in the seat makes it look very comfortable to sit in. No wonder your cute little great grandchild loves it!

What a great gift, McKinlee seems to love it. All you have to do is add your Chevy bowtie.

Thanks Tony and Pattie. Yes, she loves the chair ! I saw a rocking horse in a post yesterday that may be on the back burner in the shop. She needs to be a little older and a bit more steady to use one of them, though.

cheers, Jim
