Come gather at our table

"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."
-Virginia Woolf

So, our main anniversary gift to ourselves this year was a real dining room table, to fill our oh-so-empty front room. The modern tradition anniversary gift is china, and we decided we needed somewhere to place our china, if ever the day came to host a fancy party.

We'd been eyeing a table at Pottery Barn, but it was much too expensive, and probably too big for our space. So we found the next best thing (and probably in truth the very best thing!) at World Market last week. We saw it, we sat at it, we fell in love. And, then we waited a few days to make certain we were sure.

We were. So we bought it, and then it took three carloads and three people (my mom was in town this weekend!) to get it home. And, of course as soon as we assembled it, we had to run out to Hobby Lobby and Michael's to fix up a pretty fall centerpiece.

How festive we are! And, now we even have a place to eat!

  1. It does look quite nice, doesn't it? It inspired me to get out my fall decorations---I even found some skeletons for myself!!
