My mum has had this rocking chair since she was young and I have many memories of it too. I lost a tooth once falling forwards onto the arm and when we were renovating our house it was the only chair in my makeshift bedroom to curl up in after midnight. (reading the Daring Game by Kit Pearson). It's in our den/music room now and the faded salmon-polka dot ruffled fabric didn't quite match. I found 5 yards! of this green fabric at Goodwill and it even matches our current armchair and loveseat.
