I have not really thought about the outside yet....
We jhad our grandchildren here for an hour of so till Dad got home.
Here is SG full of concentration. Sharing floor space with quilt pieces, & various toys.
In the background is the Quilt Box, which holds all the quilts SG gets to play with. We use it as a seat also. And on the right is an old 'Humpty' or 'Pouf'- call it what you will. It was my mother's & we gave it to her about 40 years ago, & it has known all the Grandchildren, & now her Great Grandchildren, leaping all over it, & abusing it, & still it keeps right on going!
I think it is indestructable! It seems rather ugly now, perhaps, but the kids just love it, & it is a handy extra seat, or foot rest for weary legs. I have an old photo of my son, SB, naked, when he was about a year old, standing next to this old 'Pouf'. SB is 39 now, so it has seen a lot of 'child mileage!'
He reads my blog, so I wont embarrass him by publishing the pic!!
My Beloved Nephews all loved rolling about on that 'Pouf' as they grew to manhood also.
Somehow I cant quite bear to part with it.
