new little things

this little chair is my current pride & joy

while visiting a community school in Ialomita County, Romania
I saw a pile of old chairs & desks lying in the middle of the classroom
 I turned and asked my colleague,
"are these all being thrown away?"
"oh yes," she replied "World Vision is giving us all new school supplies"

A. modern things are great, especially for these children,
who have been using furniture from the 1940's early communist era
B. they are super excited about having a newly renovated school

- Additional Bonus -

I asked if I could take one home!
so here she sits...
little & perfectly sized for a romanian kindergartner
what a wonderful keepsake from a very generous community
