"New Treasure"



Got a different dining table and chairs this week.  It is not a new set, but is new to me!  My old set was about 34 years old and looked every day of it.  It was not in the least primitive, so this set is a great improvement in my opinion!  My dh, of course, would prefer fine furniture and in perfect condition, but my passion is primitives!  It has been used,  and in a few places slightly abused, but I love it!  We found it on Craig's List and were able to buy the entire set for less than the price of one new Windsor chair.  Can't wait to decorate the house for Autumn now...nothing like a new treasure to get the enthusiasm going again.  Here are a few more views:





The lady who sold the table was very sweet and had a house full of primitives.  She and I shop in the same antiques shop and have similar tastes as far as decorating goes.  She is facing knee replacement surgery soon, so please pray that all will go well.

I've been working on the Posy Pony rug a little and also on an Autumn mat that I hope to finish this week.  I'm in the Fall mood, so I had to work on something with a pumpkin in it!!  I'll show pictures in a few days.

Have a great rest of the week!

  1. Linda,
    You must be sooooo thrilled with your new dining set! It is gorgeous! You were lucky to have found it second hand...... Oh the fun you will have decorating now for fall!! Hope the knee replacement goes well for your friend. My best friend Sue is facing the same thing in a few weeks.
    Blessings!

    GREAT SET!!! Love the breadboard ends on the table. I'm with you. If I had a new set I'd worry about dings and scratches, but with primitives, it adds character!
    Pug hugs :)
