Little Farm Table in the City
Donna at Funky Junk asked to see everyone's farm tables.
I'm late to the party but wanted to share my little farm table.
You wouldn't really expect my little city cottage to have a farm table but it does...
This little table has been with me for about 25 years bought at an estate sale for $11.
It came with this original chippy paint finish.
I did wash it really good after I bought it.
This little table has been used mostly as a dining table in every apartment I lived in.
It's surprisingly large when the leaves are raised.
I've always loved it's color.
Now it sits in my breakfast nook.
I think Harvey has decided he likes to get his picture taken.
He always seems to try to get in the shot.
I couldn't resist taking a portrait. He just sat there looking up at me and let me take several.
He's a very good boy. He's my baby.
Of all the dogs...he's the one that I feel like we all have to take care of.
He is wondering where his food is in this shot, I'm sure.
I had to put it up because it was making Sally sick.
Sally has a delicate stomach, most dog foods make her sick.
I'd bought them new diet food, of the same brand they usually eat and it made Sally very sick.
So I had put the food up till I could get some rice in Sally's tummy so that she wouldn't eat the dog food.
A couple of days of rice and she'll be good as new and I'll get her back on the regular food.
Why did I buy the biggest bag possible of this food?
Drat...because I'm not sure how I'll keep her out of it. So I might have to throw it out.
Or take to a shelter that will need it.
It's hard when you have four dogs that all have different food needs.
Harvey desperately needs diet food.
Violet and Newman can eat anything and they just nibble so they don't get overweight.
Then Sally, nibbles too but many foods cause her gastric distress.
I just got this huge glass cloche. A month or so ago I was lucky and won a giveaway
from Therese at
If you haven't been by Therese's blog...you must...
She has the most exquisite taste. Here is an example of what you'll see there
This is her recently purchased buffet that compliments her dining room and large collection of
coral and sea fans. Her home is so fabulous. She always has an unusual unexpected spin on decor.
I'd say...Unexpected yet Beautiful. She always has great ideas.
Therese's living room...beyond gorgeous!
So through La Dolfina...I won a $100 gift certificate from
Have you shopped there? They have like three specials a day. Discounts on high end home goods.
So I'd been watching their sales for weeks and one day this popped up.
I'd been wanting a large glass cloche for a long time so I snapped this up.
See...only 7 left when I bought!
I mainly wanted this for display at Halloween and Christmas but I popped a fern under it for today's photos.
It's really a big one and turned out it fit perfectly over a silver platter
I'd picked up for $1 recently at a junk shop.
I'm sure it will be showing up on the blog quite a bit in the future filled with all kinds of things.
I'm still shopping Joss and Main looking for that special thing to spend the rest of my $100 on.
So much fun to shop for free.
