Little Red Wren

Sometimes it pays to be a little obsessed. Like how my husband starts his days off scouring Craig’s List for a handful of ever-changing items. A new dining table has been on that list for some time. We have outgrown our old table. Well, it is actually perfect for our family of four, but occasionally we have people over for dinner and that’s when things get… crowded. Our square pub height Kmart table has been well-loved but I can’t even bring myself to post a picture because it would just be too sad next to this beauty:

When my husband emailed me the listing, I knew we had found our new table. It is vintage, modern, beautiful condition, has two leaves, and was listed from a local retirement community.  Which means to them, it’s just an old piece of furniture. Which means cheap, which coincidentally was just our budget.

When I called the lady asked if I also wanted a coordinating buffet. I had never pictured a buffet fitting in our smallish dining area, but it was such a steal that we couldn’t pass it up. I can’t decide now whether I love the table or buffet more.

Or maybe what I love the most is the free candle holder the seller threw in for free. I know, right?

I have to control myself or I will wander into the dining room every 15 minutes to admire our pretty, pretty “new” furniture. Which brings us back to word of the day: OBSESSED.
