This vintage chemistry stool I have in my office is the perfect little table for a bright and fragrant bouquet of Spring lilacs. I cut them this morning in a few different places on campus and am enjoying them in my office.
This chemistry stool dates back to the early 1900's. Here is a photo of faculty sitting on some from 1940. I love looking at all the pictures we have in our archives. But I love it even more that I have a piece of this history in my office!
I don't know how many of these stools are still around as the stools they now use are much more up to date. I wish I would have been around when they got rid of them all, I would have taken as many as I could get my hands on!
The bright purple of the lilacs are such a beautiful contrast to the old, worn wood.
They smell amazing and the whole office is cloaked in their intoxicating fragrance.
Wishing you all wonderful week full of pretty Spring time things!
