Tis Show & Tell Friday~ My LOVELY rocker

My new "olde" rocker. My bestest ever friend, Marcia
gave this to me on Wednesday. It belonged to her parents, but it looks
so nice in my room!! Marcia said her mama told her she was given
the rocker when she had her baby..cuz mama's are suppose to
rock their babes.
I can't believe her mom said  I could own  it.
It's a lovely velvet, with wonderful wood,  carving at the top & it folds up too.
Oh I love it dearly, but not nearly as much as I love my sweet
friend Marcia, she's my rock, next to God & my hubby.
I know it's mature( the rocker) ..I think it was mature  when it was given as a
 present OVER 50 years ago. 
When I showed my husband ..he sat in it ...rocked a bit and 
said "it's not really a manly chair"...LOL, I told him..it's NOT for 
you silly!!!

Thanks again to  Kelli of No Place Like Home  for hosting Show & Tell Friday. Visit HERE for more participants.
Fondly, Deena
