The table and chairs are special to me as they have a history of where I lived when I purchased them. The ladder back chairs with arms have woven seats and the top of the table is oak and it has two small drawers in the front.
The drawers hold the silver set of knives, forks and spoons for four and the sharp handcrafted knife that has a serrated edge and really can cut. I keep it in the drawer instead of in the pottery container on the butcher block table with the other kitchen utencils for reasons of safety. :<)
The sewing tin hold so many sewing supplies - a scissors, two different size spools of thread, a tape measure, a cardboard square of buttons, a package of hem binding, some loose buttons.
I also forgot to take a close up photo of the tiny bear made by my artist friend Todd - it is fully jointed and the head, arms and legs all move and of the little clown doll that is handmade with the little circle puffs all sewn individually and strung together. Love these two sweet toys! (I also put a flower in the glass vase before returning this to the dollhouse studio.)
It is really cool and rainy here in this part of WI - quite a difference from the past week! The leaves are starting to turn - beginnings of gold and orange and red - Fall is on the way!
I have been working on some Halloween cards and getting in the mood. Christmas cards also. It seems with people now decorating their homes and yards for Halloween as they do during the Christmas season, it seems like Thanksgiving has become an all but forgotten holiday.
You take care. I am thankful for your lovely e-mails and comments! So nice to hear from you!
