We went to the mall first so we could set up the little breakfast set I've been working on. Here it is, all complete:
I love the way this came out. My granddaughters said I should paint the table white; I sort of recoil at painting oak when it is in good condition, but maybe they're right. What do you think--paint or leave as is?
We drove through beautiful country to deliver the desk and pick up the dining room set.
We took the furniture to our booth and with Leah (the owner of the mall) helping, we got it in the booth and mostly arranged without, amazingly, having to take anything else out. Leah is great at figuring space like a jigsaw puzzle.
On the way home we stopped at a thrift store and found a few things, like:
Vintage jewelry boxes and a little condiment set in a chrome rack (missing a lid, so I'll be on the hunt for a replacement);
a gorgeous vase and a chef decor chalkboard along with some funky fish salt and pepper shakers,
and a pretty made-in-Italy floral scarf and a new (to us anyway) shower curtain.
All in all it was a good day. Tonight I'm doing some eBay listings while Larry works on the Hoosier cabinet again. Tomorrow? More of the same, I think, and that sounds like another fine day to me.
