Yipee! The old Blogger beast has decided to be nice
So, I was looking at the last issue of Romantic
Homes (not the new one...I'm forever a day late
and a dollar short...and don't usually have the
"current"issue when it's still "current"...oh well.)
Anyway, I noticed this table that had been
painted white...very cute & somehow familiar!
(I'm not sure if it's a venial sin or an actual felony
to use that picture???)
Ah-ha! The Peanut table!!!! I have a very
similar table!!! My sister bought it from our
old boss who had inherited it from his great
aunt, and being the clever little things that we
are...a-hem... and since it's shaped like a peanut,
it has always been called "The Peanut Table"...
(no, no, don't be intimidated...it takes many years
of training and a bit of wine to be this witty...
or to think you are witty ;}
But I digress, Bee is still not so sure that she wants
the table to be painted white...she has issues that
we don't discuss in public...so, I had to take matters
into my own hands! To lighten it up, I cut out a piece
of really cute wrapping paper in shades of pink (how
shocking!) and ivory. (The paper actually says
"Happy Birthday" on it in very small script...but no
one I know can see stuff that small anymore, so what
the heck!). No, it's not the shabbiest of shabby chic-ness,
but it works for now and I really like the combination of
the dark & light !!!
And this is just an example of how I have trained me angel,
Sammy, to pose in the best possible light and setting, to
help mommy take pretty pictures! :)
Have a great day!!
