Cinco de Mayo
We finally got a brand new Dining table. We had the last one for just shy of 30 years, so it was definitely time!
It always drove me crazy because it did not match any of the other wood in the house — not the kitchen cabinets, or any other furniture, which is why almost all my table settings involve table cloths!
We don’t have the chairs yet, but already my decorating style is evolving, because I am not trying to “cover-up” the table!
Come on baby, light my fire.
I’ve always wanted a fireplace. I’ll admit it, I use have a Christmas DVD of a fireplace, just so I can see and hear the warm glow of the yule log. A DVD pales in comparison to the real thing, but for a while it was as close as I could get!
Then I found a faux fireplace that allows you to have a real flame fire! I bought it, and the fire fuel, several years ago, and have still not used it once! What is wrong with me?
I’ve got a flickering flame light bulb in there for now, but hopefully someday, I’ll have the real thing.
