these chairs started it all....

aren't they absolutely beautiful?

i love the swirl marks in the table top, they are reclaimed floors from an old house, somewhere...

the four chairs and my new table..... all because of the chairs in a little antique shop in littleton, i now am the proud new owner of something a little old, but new to me. this antique shop owner is also the proud owner of a vintage market here in littleton that i have frequented a few times. i probably will be frequenting it more often this summer. (want to join me meg?) i used to decorate, country style before i met my husband brian. we bought a contemporary style house and i changed my whole decorating style. who says that you can't mix a little old with the new? so that is what my new mission is, to slowly swap out a few things, but keep some of my current things and create a beautiful home.
by the way, we used craigs list for the first time ever. i listed our old table and chairs on friday night for sale and someone was at my house saturday morning with cash to buy it, for what we were asking i might add... can you believe it? i know, i am still in shock too!
