Last time we visited I was in a fine snit. Nothing around here was going to suit me, nothing at all, but I lost myself in a creative project so now all is (mostly) right in my world. (If only I could knock out that front wall and make the DR a few feet bigger...)
|We switched the table for this one|
I have now draped the dining room table in, first, a king size white quilt for heft, and then topped it off with the same silk as the curtains. I had two lengths left so I sewed them together to get full coverage for the table. On each end it does not come all the way to the floor, but it is OK for now. Never fear, no one will get the chance to spill gravy on it.

|The light is making this look blue -- the fabric is the same as the curtains.|
I have been painting the little curio cabinet I bought from my cousin's estate. I custom mixed the color to blend with what is already here in the room, but you will have to wait and see what that color is. You know I like to mess with you!
Meantime, there is another event to look forward to -- The Chapel Market in Pike Road, Alabama. This show and sale is the brainchild of Layla at The Lettered Cottage, and this is the second year. Last year was a rousing success by all accounts, but I couldn't go because I couldn't walk well enough. Since I have a new knee, I am able to walk very well, and I am looking forward to covering it all.
You shouldn't be surprised if I come home with something wonderful!
Will I see you there? It's next Saturday, the 25th. Some of your favorite bloggers and antiques purveyors will be there.
