I Did What???

Happy Hump Day!  Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful week.  Here in South Jersey the weather is feeling more like Summer than Spring with the temperature going up to almost 90 degrees today!  Whew!  Not great gardening weather, but that's what's on the agenda.  Or maybe I'll just stay in the air conditioning and catch up on some blogging.

About a week or so ago, when life was still somewhat normal around here, I did some antiquing.  I don't usually shop at actual antique stores because as we all know, the owners of these fine establishments are doing exactly the same thing we do!  Scouring yard sales, curbside, thrift stores, estate sales and the like and then adding zeroes to their prices for the not-so-well-informed.  But that's exactly where I found myself on this particular day when I wandered off the thrifty trail and came face to face with this lovely table.
A beautifully hand-painted antique tilt-top table.  I knew I had to have her, and when I saw the price I knew it was meant to be.....$25!  Must be something wrong with her, right?  Nope!  But I woulda brought her home with me anyway.

I think she looks lovely tucked into a corner in my Dining Room, wouldn't ya say?

I guess it's okay to break the rules once in a while.

That is a great table!

If it was 90 degrees where I live I would have called in sick to work and spent the day drinking daquiris on my back deck!

Enjoy the weather!

Hi Kim!
Beautiful table, it looks great in that spot! It is hot here too but I'm holding out and refusing to put the air on because we just turned the heat off a week ago. Have a great week!

It does look great. I always think I want to do that type of shopping and then the desire disappears. It may be because we can never score a deal.
