That “DUH” moment

My mother had this cute little hand made desk.  I had always loved it.  But I had absolutely no place for it. 

It sat and sat.  For over a year.  Because I just couldn’t bear the thought of selling it.

All twiggy and so eclectic.  The front has a hidden drawer.

I finally decided it was time to sell it.


I brought it home to refinish the top and get it ready.

It’s sooo cute and unusual.  Huummm……I wonder……

Who says it has to be used as a desk.

A strand of favorite tarnished stars.

Some sweet Christmas decor in a favorite apothecary jar.

Favorite sweet doggies and a little mercury glass.

A basket full of vintage goodness.

Sitting on top of two battered vintage suitcases.

Huummm……..looking pretty cute.


Well DUH……it took me a YEAR to figure this out!? 

I think I love it.  I KNOW I’ll keep it.

They love it.  They told me so.  You believe me, don’t you?


Of course you do!

Have a wonderful week.

  2. I love it! I've always been crazy for twig furniture. I sold most of mine when I moved into this house. But kept a few favorite pieces. Some I'm still trying to figure out what to do with them. I think like day it will suddenly come to me. Very pretty.

    It's brrrrrrr cold here right now....two days of blowing accumulation but now my highs are like 31 and lows in the teens...we did get the wood stove installed. A great help the the central heat with this high ceiling in the great room.
