Since moving here it is a treat to have visitors! We are having some folks for dinner on Saturday. I already have the table set. Does that tell you I am anxious to have folks over?? Making my lasagna that is always a hit.
Stop over at Susan's to see some other folks who have their tables set as well!
If you are looking at fall decor you can go to my earlier post here to see what I did to get the front of my house ready for fall. Rhoda is hosting a gathering for fall. Go and check out the friends she has gathered to show off fall decor here.
We stopped by one of our favorite furniture places last weekend. Got a queen mattress set for our upstairs guest room. While we were there I found this piece. It was a sample from the furniture market. I fell in love with it and could not beat the deal I got! It needs a good dusting and some staging! (Great way to procrastinate from what I should be doing....)
Since the day we moved in we have been on a search for the 4 tiny drawers in the top of this piece. I found them last week!! Ta Da!! They were neatly wrapped in the bottom of a box of fabric. Funny how putting those four drawers in made everything right with the world. We had scoured box after box seeking them and feared that somehow they were lost. This piece is special to me. I call it "the Betsy Table." For years it sat in my dear friend Betsy's kitchen. She loved to putz around and decorate it. I love to sit at the kitchen table with my coffee. Somehow I feel like she is with me. I don't think her husband, Ken, had any idea how thrilled I was the day he offered the piece to me.
Another treat was seeing my newly planted Magnolia bloom. Betsy, a true southern lady, would be proud!
