We got a new table! Yay! My mom found this great antique table and had it refinished, and then my cousin Carolyn gave us three of the chairs and my mom found the fourth. All four look like they are absolute matches...but only we know that they're not. Well, and now you know because you're reading this. Crap.
Anyway, I got a great deal on some decor and spruced it up. It's actually going to be fun to "eat at the table" now! I think I will actually use some serving dishes and decorations that I've had stowed away. And then after a week I'll be tired of that, and we'll go back to just serving our plates from the pots and pans in the kitchen. But hey, it'll be fun for a week right?
Or maybe we could start having people over to play cards on this fun new table. That sounds like a good idea. Now all I have to do is learn how to play "cards."
It most definitely WILL NOT be used for one thing though. And that is that it will not be used as a place to put the mail when we get home in the afternoons. It's right by the door, so I know it's easy to do. But, we won't do it.
Check back in a week. The serving plates will all be stowed away again and there will be mail on the table.
So much for dreaming though. It can be fun while it lasts.
