White Hydrangeas and Chippy Bistro Chair

Hi all.  Everyone happy that it is Friday?  I thought that I would share these photos of my hydrangeas because they just make me happy.  They are so big and beautiful!

I found this pitcher online.  It was advertised as white.  It was not that expensive so I wasn't expecting too much.  

When it arrived I was surprised by the great condition as well as the bluish grey hue.  

It even holds water, which you probably know is not all that common for enamel pitchers of this age.  

My bistro chairs have been selling really well in the shop recently.  So I decided to add this one.  

  It is German, around 1930's, from a beer garden, I was told when I bought it from the antiques dealer.  I have tried to research this company, CW Naumann, but have been unable to find any info about it.  

I love the chippiness of it as well as the curved legs. It actually slants a bit but is sturdy and quite heavy.

Have a great weekend.  And welcome to my new followers.  Very happy to have you.
