I had wanted a new set but with all the "stuff" that has gone on in the last year and a half that was going to be impossible. Allison and Caitlin told me I was crazy that there were great deals on Craig's List. I think Allison found this one in less than 24 hours. I loved it.
I cleaned the table and chairs with Old English. While I was doing this I remembered I had a large doily that JE and I had found last spring. My grandma had made it years ago. After I put it on the table I decided it needed something else.
I had a vase that I love. Joseph sent it to me full of pink tulips while he was in Iraq. Flowers do die so I had an idea. What is a great thing for a knitter to have close by? Knitting needles. I went to my needle stash and pulled out a bunch that are second and third sizes. Don't judge, you never know when you might need five pairs of size10's or 8's. Plus you do not have to remember to water them and they don't die.
I love it.
So now when the grandgirls come to play and stay to eat, which of course is most of the time, we have a more steady table and chairs. Now we can do our crafts (or as Scout says craps) on a steady surface. Thanks Alli for finding this table. It is exactly like I wanted and you saved me enough money that I can use that savings for more yarn which I will add to the stash in the buffet behind the table.
