Chair Photos August 2007

August 25, 2007

This chair has made many trips. From China to Japan and now to Florida. I look at the well worn edges and wonder who used this chair before us. Did they ever imagine it would find its way inside an American home next to two pairs of rubber rainboots (also probably made in China)? Or that a Jewish, Taiwanese, American girl would giggle and play on it? Some of you may remember the story of the chair (at least our family's story, I wish I knew the early stories of this chair). I bought this chair at an antique store in Okinawa shortly before receiving our referral. It was the first real thing I purchased for our future daughter. When she was about five months old we had family photos taken in our home, including the first ones of Camille with the chair (happy buddha baby). I continue to try and take photos of her (and Noah when he will cooperate) with the chair. It is fun to see how much she has changed since the last chair photo shoot. So here is Mei-Mei at 21 months old with stickers on her belly and one bright pink shoe. The first photo is also meaningful to me because of my dad's painting in the background. It is the old farm house where I grew up.

I too wonder of all the stories a piece of furniture could tell. Particularly the ones from this side of the world, though Im not sure why. Maybe because it seems like its from much more of a far off place and probably has a greater tale to tell. I think its neat that you are getting the pictures in the chair!

I love these photos. I think you should have won first place in the Adoptive Families magazine photo contest, but it was cool that they printed it!
