A new treasure!

















I picked this cute little table up over the weekend....it was a Craig's List find! It isn't my best bargain from Craig's List at $75 but it fits the space perfectly! Originally I made a beautiful gathered round table cloth for a table that fit the space and looked totally fabulous. Unfortunately it didn't fit our family perfectly. You see my cute little fur babies thought it was necessary to trample on the bottom of the table cloth every time they went out the door to go potty. *sigh* Then of course there was the other issue......Teddy decided it was the perfect napping spot. So, every day he would pull the table cloth out enough to lay on which caused it to be waaaay longer in the front. I finally convinced him it wasn't for napping so instead he decided to go underneath the table cloth and table and use it as his own little private space. After a few days I gave up and put the table and cloth away. Finding a table that wasn't taller than the wing chair was quite a challenge too. Who knew tables could be so tall? I think the original function of the little table was to serve as a nightstand. It has a little drawer on the side that pulls out which is so totally clever not to mention handy!!!! So, what do you think....perfect for the spot of too cute?

Amongst the chaos......





I bought this little shiny table a couple of weeks ago as a little "me" gift for reaching a goal I have been striving for myself the last few months. I realize it probably isn't everyone's taste but gosh, how I sure love the sparkle!!! I decided to cut some flowers for the little vase...............

An update

I was going to post a few pics of the kitchen renovation progress so far but......it looks like we haven't really made any! LOL...In fact I decided to hold off because it looks so bad right now it would probably scare the average person half to death and convince them to never ever buy an old house! Hopefully I will have something to share very soon though! Hope you all had a fabulous holiday.....................
