Today I want to tell you about a good thing. The table that was sitting curbside for over a week on my block. I drove by it each day on my way to work and admired it from my car window. A nice simple table that looked like real wood and I kept wondering why it didn’t have any takers? I talked my mother-n-law into walking down the street so I could have a closer look. I think it was just waiting for me. Nobody had taken it and it was a perfectly lovely sweet simple table. Motorcycle man and Papa Bear took the truck down and loaded it up for me. I’m thankful for that too!
I cleaned up it’s table top and gave it some tender love and oil and it shined up very nice. I posted her on social media because I was so proud of our rescue. Then to have a nice friend of mine offer up some petite chairs she had stored in her garage for some time. They were chairs that she saved from the demise ofinfinite landfill and wanted to do something special with them but never did. So when she saw my post she offered them up to me. She didn’t want any money for them because she had not paid for them herself. I figured some beautiful stickers and a coffee gift card would be a nice exchange. Now I have two sweet chairs to go with the sweet table. I can’t wait to recover the seats and maybe spruce up the wood finish.
I have such plans for this table. I can image this.
tea parties in the forest, which really will be our back yard.
breakfast on the veranda….which actually will be ourback yard patio.
perhaps a nice conversation with strong creamy coffee.
a place to write a letter.
the possibilities are endless.
i’m thinking of a nice fresh flowers in a pretty jar to set in the middle.
maybe even if i get very fancy I can put a vintage table cloth on top.
and for sure a place to celebrate a very merry unbirthday.
And although my scavenger book didn’t have a spot for a table and chairs, I think i’ll add it because it for sure was a treasure found. And for now it sits in my "creative space room"
How was your weekend?
