Lately, I have acquired quite a few pieces of furniture that someone no longer wanted.
One of those pieces is a little round table ~
~ ~ an ordinary type of table that I thought I would use after I painted it red!
But when I looked at it closely, I thought, “no, maybe not” . .
The wood was actually nice and I realized how old it was when I looked at the bottom of it..
~ ~ it has great patina and looked like it was handmade vs. machine made.
I can hear a voice come out of the crevices ~ ~ “don’t paint me ~ don’t paint me”
And ~ ~ I have been taught to respect “my elders” so I listened to that old table ~ ~
~ ~ and I put away the paint brush!
I swear I heard it say “thank you”
So now is sits happily between the loveseat and chair.
~ ~ the other table was moved over to the other side of the chair.
~ ~ ~ do you spy my Demi-john from France?
This is the only room that is completely devoid of Christmas decor..
Well, except for winter berry sprays I left in the hanging scale.
Thought it could pass for my “winter decor”
I think I have a bit of a “scale” thing going on in this room ~
I rescued the lantern from the back porch from the 9 degree weather ~ ~
~ ~ the lantern thanked me too!
The sunroom is still a work in progress ~ ~ adding and deleting things here and there.
The Demi-john is just sitting “quietly” in the room..waiting for its permanent place.
~ ~ and speaking of Demi-johns ~ WHAT IS THE ACTUAL CORRECT WAY TO SPELL IT?
I have seen it spelled in three different ways:
Demi-john ~ ~ demijohn ~ ~ demi john
So what say you? ~ How do you spell/write it?
Have a wonderful day!! ~ ~ and the table says so too!
