I decided against the pedestrian, mundane table I had chosen yesterday while furniture shopping. The more I thought of it the more I knew it wasn't for me in any way but size. I would have made the same mistake I made with the table I presently have whose photo I just posted yesterday for you. I bought that one back several years ago after having seen it and not shopping around. I bought the first one I saw and I almost did that again. Instead I headed to another place today after seeing an ad in the paper and I found the one I have bought and paid for. It is wood, cherry, and has just four padded chairs to go with it. Aside from the cherry wood there are four marble oblong panels inlayed (is that the right spelling?) in the top. I used 2/3's of my tax refund on that. It should be here on Monday and then I'll take a picture. The one I almost got which I would have regretted as badly as I still do the one that is in here now, was plain dark "wood" with a top that looked like oak flooring sorta kinda. It was OK but since I have to look at it all of the time, I knew I would regret it. Too "motel looking" if you know what I mean.
My red dogwood (or as a kitty friend of the Admiral said...catwood) photo in Flickr got the "Explore" honor. I was thrilled. Number 210 out of 500. It's a woman thing I guess. You make and serve a meal..in this case a photo, and give it to your guests (those who are your contacts) and when they like it..it just thrills me. Makes me want to whip up another dessert. ☺
Thank you for the comments on yesterday's white dogwood blossoms that I used as my header for now.
That wooden table you saw with the bowl on top will be outta here Monday. YEA! I gave it to Ecumenical House who will give it to a disaster victim family.
