Really Belting It Out


Hmmm...what do you think, should I get some new dining room furniture? No, it definitely would not look good in my kitchen of white and pale blue. But it might look very good in the dining room of our neighbors, The Addams Family. It could serve a dual purpose of sitting and also restraining.



 “On the twenty-fourth day of the first month I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris. I looked up and to my surprise saw a man dressed in linen with a belt of pure gold around his waist. His body was hard and glistening, as if sculpted from a precious stone, his face radiant, his eyes bright and penetrating like torches, his arms and feet glistening like polished bronze, and his voice, deep and resonant, sounded like a huge choir of voices.”

I was thinking along the same lines as I scrolled through your photos Ginny. If a guest got too unruly it would be easy to strap them to the chair until they calmed down.

You do find some of the most interesting things.

This reminds me of dining with Henry VIII. Not that I've ever done that.

Best,

Melanie said...

Oh, wow...interesting, but definitely not the look for me!

RoeH said...

I love it. But it looks a tad uncomfortable with the belt buckles. If you moved just a bit.... :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Not my fav style, but interesting nonetheless!

Ma said...

Those are interesting, Ginny.

So unusual...these chairs

Sandra said...

where ever did you find this, awesome way to recycle belts but for sure would not fit your decor... maybe you could collect pastel ladies belts ad make one for yourself, or hire the Adams family to make it for you... bet they could think of lots to do with all those belts.

Really "belting" them out on the chairs... Addams family.. yes, I think I have seen their series before last time...

Fred Alton said...

WoW! What a great idea for that broken chair at the cabin - and use for all the old belts that are now too big for me! Made me smile to think of how creative people can be. You, Ginny, have that artistic eye!

DawnTreader said...

What a creative and decorative way of recycling! :)

Hi Ginny, Clever! It is a high-design way to reuse old belts, that's for sure. Have a really nice weekend! Wildlifewatcher

These chairs are definitely unusual. I'm not sure how comfortable they would be with the buckles and other ornamentation.

Ruth Kelly said...

Those chairs are amazing. Oddly enough, they remind me of the antique chair I got from my grandmother whose seat is made of some type of woven string.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

You constantly amaze me. Where do you find all these unique pictures? NO I wouldn't want a dining room set like that.Doesn't look veery comfortable.

Filip and Kristel said...

It also wouldn't be something for my living room but a good example of reclyling.

Greetings,

Hi Ginny . . . I can see that furniture in a rock stars home . . . but not my style. On the other hand it is very interesting to see into the creative minds of other people.

In regard to the comment you left on my resent post:
yes they are my drawings . . . it's what I do in the evening, while watching TV with my hubby.
I can get through a show like Axe Man, or Ice Road Truckers, just fine, if my mind is into my art, LOL.
Have a joy filled weekend:)
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

oh my gosh! I kind of like it..but not for me, for someone else...and as always, LOVE the way you can find a Scripture correlation for everything under the sun!
happy weekend!

Maple Lane said...

Very unique.

Mary said...

I hope you didn't think I was lost. I just need longer days, Ginny. Those chairs are something else! You asked about more dishes. I have one or two more that I can share, but many of the others are just too heavy for today's tastes. Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

Linda said...

Fascinating post and photos, Ginny! I kind of like this look. :)

Joanne said...

Hmmmm you do find the coolest things to post!
Blessings, Joanne

EM Illustrator said...

These chairs looks cool, but must be a little uncomfy with the belt buckles.
Enjoy your weekend.

Interesting. I didn't even know you were back blogging. It's good to see you back. Now I'll have to go back and see what I've missed. :)

I think I'll stick to my wooden chairs.

Chatty Crone said...

They are not for me and I love eclectic things! LOL I bet Adams Family would love them!

Annie said...

Not too crazy about this, G. Can you just imagine the marks that would be left on one's hiney?

Where do you find the unique things you share?
