Thanks for hanging in here with me. I have been away for a few weeks. Hubby needed a vacation since his mom’s passing, and we needed to check on her North Carolina mountain cabin. (More about that later!) I am back, but still pretty tied up with estate stuff, and being a mom. My fifteen-year-old has her permit and somehow it is mom’s job to ride with her while she learns to drive. (Personally, I would prefer that someone would just wake me up when it is all over and she has her license.) I want very much to have time for the blog. I miss all of you, REALLY. I love reading everyone’s blog and seeing all of your sweet comments.
Since my surprise breakfast for my daughter, I redid my woodlands retreat.
Here’s a picture of the table and chairs before. To see more, click here.
This is the way the table and chairs looked when I got them at the auction. I thought they looked okay, but wanted a softer, cleaner look. I selected the color, Opera Glasses from Valspar, that I used on the rockers on my front porch, click here to see.
I was inspired by the table and chairs I saw at Rachel’s Ashwell’s B&B (click here to see post) shown below.
I brought along a plate of fruit and coffee to enjoy this morning.
I also brought some purchased fresh flowers for my table. The vase is an old vintage Mason jar of my mom’s.
The dishes are some my mother-in-law gave me years ago. They are made in Bavaria, I believe.
Here’s a closer look at one of the chairs.
The tablecloth is a vintage tea towel, although it is so large that I used it for a tablecloth.
