A couple of days ago, mom left me alone at home and had fun without me.    She went to a place that sells used Hitchcock furniture.   She said it was like being in a candy store!
Hitchcock chairs are made in Connecticut.   The company goes back to the early 1800's.
Mom grew up with Hitchcock furniture!   Gram and Gramp bought beds and tables and chairs there and mom has always loved them.

She came home with two kitchen chairs~
 And a small desk.
She said she was going to use it to organize her bills and paperwork but she said that it looked too messy with papers sticking out of the cubby holes so she found a better use for the desk.
Black and tan furniture with Airedales☺   Brilliant!

Love ya lots♥

We love the display of all your Airedale pups on the new desk. Your mom will just have to find a plain desk for the bills.

Oh Molly you are a lucky lucky dog to acquire those pieces. We love the wheat pattern down the ribs of the chairs. Lee goes to auctions and always bids on Hitchock pieces that would fit our small place but the bidding goes to high for us. We would just die for a few chairs from the Signature Series.
Thanks for being a friend

Those HITCHCOCK Pieces are GORGEOUS. We love the chairs... butt the DESK is to HOWL FUR. OMD it is AMAZING. We love what your mom did with the Pigeon holes. MUCH better than stuffin 'em with Bills... This way it Showcases the Pawfect collectibles BEAUTIFULLY. WOW... the DRAWER is LOVELY.

Sue said...

Mom likes that furniture but she didn't know what it was called. We think the desk makes a great place to display the Dales.

that was the perfect use for the desk

Helen said...

Wow, very nice. And I'll bet they didn't come cheap. My economics prof said to always buy the most expensive items you can afford, they probably are better made and will last longer so in the end they are more cost effective. I'll bet those pieces will be heirlooms some day.

Once upon a time, Mom had a Hitchcock rocking chair - it was a wedding gift - she wonders now why she ever gave it away!!! Now that she sees your chairs, what she really wants is a kitchen table and chairs set!!! That desk is the perfect location for an Airedale display.

Hi Molly and Sue
LOVE your new Hitchcock furniture. I have loved this furniture for a very long time I passed on my dresser, nighttable, mirror and chair just like the ones you have, to my daughter. I Love the desk and it is the perfect place to showcase your Black and Tans.

Truly brilliant!!!!! I love those chairs (I think that my Grandma had that kind!). And the desk is beautiful, especially with the way that your mom set up all the black and tans on it!

Susie said...

I love the new chairs and desk and extremely Airedale friending. I love your collection of Dales too. Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx

Kudos to your mom for matching her furtinature to the pets! That is fantastic. I agree Airedales on the desk is better than bills. Airedales give you smiles, bills give you frowns. :)
