The Grandpa Chair - Vintage Memory Lane

in vintage •  17 days ago

A Wooden Chair which keep accompanying us since more than Decades. A Chair which is more than Family with many fond Moments. A kind of Legacy that keep passing on with each generation. This is my GrandPa chair.

I am watching this Chair since , my early Days my elder brother told me, it was at home before he came into this world. So by that Calculation I can predict this Chair is before 1970. A Vintage wooden Chair which have travelled all along 1400 miles with us in City from Native place.

My fond memory recalls my Grandpa sitting on it puffing few Ciggrates and playing with us. Exhaling smokes from Nose, Mouth Ear and making us Smilw. We still have his Picture on this Chair during his last days. Though I did not get much time, but chair have spent more time with him.

When my Dad got trtransferein 90's to City 1400 miles away from our Native place, we took this Chair along with us. By far the best companion we have since ages.
The chair is not only used for relaxing, but this the best Stool or kind ladder we have. Any repair or maintenance or we need to reach any higher ceiling or anything. This Chair always supported us.

Even after more than 30 Years , It is found a place at our home, just get a cushion accompanied it.

No Legs broken, strong Arm rest , the Back still strong, from Grand pa to Dad and to me and then ........It still have the strongness to go many more generation.

Old is Gold. Never thought of dismantling it, all fond memory stop us from doing any harm to this beautiful chair.

@dreemsteem thanks for letting me revisit some fond memory. It was your giveaway program that i thought of sharing thiz chair.

Stay Calm....

Keep Steeming...Steem On !!!

This is a beautiful sentimental chair to have in your family. It has all the love and treasured memories of your grandfather. Kudos to you for keeping his memory alive! #steemitbloggers

Thanks @cecicastor thats true..so much to cherish just looking at the chair and feel the warmth and love by sitting on it...a true source of love and affection of our own...

Sounds amazing and even if your grandpa is not there anymore he is still alive through that chair in your memories. So beautiful. 🌟🌟🌟

Posted using Partiko Android

I love this! @steemflow! Isn't it amazing how something as simple as a chair can evoke strong emotions, memories and feelings about someone we loved? I know when my mom passed away it was difficult to get rid of simple items which reminded me of her. My daughters felt the same way and wanted small memory items. Your grand-dad's chair looks like it will be around for a long time and has quite a few stories to share :)

·

Exactly @birdsinparadise the small item though look outdated but the priceless moments keep us close to them. The playing , eating, grand dad, usin it for different purpose...isn't it become a part of our life....loved it even when someone suggest us to change it or replace it..or say you keep junk in your home...doesnt matter to ...we are not affluwnt though..hahah

I know what u mean. I have a similar chair from my grandmother. When she passed away, we still kept the chair.

Best part, I dreamt of her one day & she warned me never to sit on her chair 😎

·

Hahah..that is funny...she loved that chair a lot. @ireenchew how easily such old things make part of our life with many fond memory. Glad you treasured the love of your grandma

Ohhh so nice of you @dreemsteem...well when i was reading your post ...i was sitting on it at same place. Just to add on your imagination 😜 ...
We still recall all time spent on this chair...so a very memorable piece

I am not only liking it ... I LOVE IT :) Yeahh I am a vintage guy, for sure. Look at that wonderful chair. Amazing story. I like most, that the chair just was kept how it is, meaning it's not painted or altered in any way. I love so much to see on the surface of the chair the long time it was with the family. This way we all can feel the story and now we know the story behind.

The chair is still strong, a symbol for the strong family ties and the love of generations. I love it! Thank you so much @steemflow for sharing this treasure with us!

·
·

Haha....thanks @anutu for a wonderful review . It is something that we proud to own with all the loving mkments that we spent around..it is priceless. More so it helped a lot in many ways...not only for sitting purpose but also in other ways...
A part of our life...still every member seats on it once by anyhow....a true magical tpuch or you say my grandpa blessing👌

Yes ... I have this lipstick from my aunt (the one I started my true life story with "A Guy and a Lipstick"), I have turned it into a bracelet. I wear it very often. Feels good to have something around from family members that are close to our heart.

I can imagine your grandpa is with you all with the chair when cour family comes together. And every family member sitting on it once. I love it!!!

Have a great Monday!!!!!

Thank you for your kindness @steemflow. This is the first part https://steemit.com/life/@anutu/a-guy-and-a-lipstick-how-i-kept-a-memory-i-never-had

Meanwhile I have written five parts. I feel the same about the lipstick. Like you said, it helps us not to miss a person anymore. The presence helps a lot.

Happy Monday to you, too!

That chair, with your story, becomes the most beautiful chair around!! :) It's priceless to be able to be passed from one generation to the next too!

It's funny, because I have such great memories of sitting on my grandfather's lap, in his chair, while he smoked cigarettes, blowing smoke everywhere :)

·

Hahah....@lynncoyle1nwe used to do the same...those cirular rings and different types of exhaling smokes..are what i remeber jow....didnt spend much time..but i saw hil always sitting on this chair......great grand chair

Some of the old antic furniture is really a treasure to keep.

·

Haha..thank you g 👍 keep along with us with each generation....sticking to root 😉

Posted using Partiko Android

It's almost as if the chair is a personification of your grandfather - the way you describe it as having strong arms, and back - helping you reach things you wouldn't otherwise be able to reach. That's nice. :-)

It's amazing how certain things can hold so many memories and mean so much. How great that it has stayed in the family and been kept so well. Thanks for sharing :)

·

Thanks for a surprise visit @letsgetquirky 👍 appreciated. ..such thing become integral part of life and you miss somenthing if it is not around. We spent our childhood around it. And still it is with us....felt proud that we kept it all alon with us

Never ever throw it away! It's not only a piece of furniture but part of your family. I'm sure that you're thinking about your grandpa anytime you see it :) I would love to have something from my grandpa too...

Exactly dear 👌

Posted using Partiko Android

This one moved me to tears, I am quite sentimental. I love all things about family history. I hope you are able to write about your memories in the chair and save those along with the chair when you pass it on.

·

That is pretty nice idea @hezziebees never thought on this. Will do something to keep all memory intact on the chair.👌

Such a sweet story behind the chair! I completely agree - old is gold! 😊

·

Thanks @traciyork old is always valuable and priceless

Posted using Partiko Android

Such a sweet story. How nice that you are able to keep this chair (and his memory) with you, even after such a big move. It just goes to show that it really is the simple things that mean the most. I'm sure it will be cherished for a long time yet.

·

Thanks @offbeatbroad it is lovely to give them a space still in our home. Even after so many years the chair is standing with little bit of wear and tear with all memory to cherish. Thanks for the lovely comment..n👌
