La Silla de Verde

La Silla de Verde by Tiffany Greenfield www.eleventhhourfiction.wordpress.com

I have been known to get an idea of what I am looking for and am patient for very long periods of time until I find “IT.”  Ask anyone who has had the misfortune of shopping with me and they might tell you that it probably took me 4 years to find a couch, 2 years to find a vintage bread box and WAY too long to find an antique glass covered cake plate (which I was finally given as a gift, with a CAKE inside of it!).  For quite some time I have been on the search for the mythical perfect writing chair that is “worthy” of my writing table.  My table is a 1950’s style kitchen table rescued from a Grandparent’s basement.  It’s hard to explain to a fellow shopper or store clerk that what I am looking for is a feeling and I will know it when I find it.  Yesterday while making a donation at our local Habitat Re-Store,  I took a look around.  In the back room, it was like the warehouse sky opened up and a bright light appeared on the perfect chair.  It is not only comfortable, but in excellent condition.  Later that day while cleaning it, I found an asset tag attached underneath, it was from the bank where my Mom worked for over 30 years.  I am not sure if I found this chair or if it found me.  I do know that I look forward to the hours and hours we will be spending together.  The price tag said $10….but it is actually priceless.  La Silla de Verde….The Green Chair.
