Granny's Chair

I don't have much that belonged to my granny, but I do have this Bentwood chair. It is so comfy, I use it at my sewing machine. I hope you enjoyed my bit of RED.
Have you all been to a store where an item will actually talk to you..it says "me!" pick me" Thats what happened here. I had a couple of other goodies in my hands when I came across this beautiful sugar bowl. I couldn't ignore the plea to come home with me. I put the other things away and came back to this one item. It is soooo beautiful. The little roses...aaaaah. I cant read the markings on the bottom.
I added lots of sparkly glittered pin and buttons, even to the back.
