Remember when I mentioned...

I was looking for a Windsor fan back style dining room set for my kitchen??

YaY!! Look what I found!

I found it where else?? But on Craigslist. It's an old, vintage Duckloe set.

It's a 60" round table and has four leaves that open up to 100" long. Heck, I could feed the Duggars on that. Well, that might be pushing it.
;> )
It also has two more side chairs.


Man, my sweet hubs went through a lot of trouble to get this for me. He ended up having to travel to Connecticut this past Saturday to pick it up. (It started out in Long Island, NY) Heck, I'm surprised he didn't want a divorce after this one! **giggle** I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful man who puts up with my craziness and Craigslist deals.


There's the "GROCERY" sign I was working on. Finally got er done. I'm amazed I climbed the ladder and hung it up without breaking a hip.
:> )


Look who's scootin' by my butcher block.


The vet did return my call this afternoon. Darla's thyroid is normal which means something else is causing her elevated liver enzymes. I'll continue this round of antibiotic and have have her blood work checked in a month.

All I can do is pray she heals and thank the good Lord above for every day I have with her.

Lovely set there! I would be afraid of using it and spoiling it LOL!
Glad to see Darla moving around.

Thanks, Sandie! But trust me... This set is FAR from pristine. It's got scratches and digs all over it. Heck, I'd have to rob a Brinks truck to afford one in excellent condition. ((hee-hee))

...Wow Karin! That is fantastic! Congrat's on the great find & it looks right at home there too. I can't believe how much hard work you've put into your kitchen and the results are just to die for! That table & chairs set is the icing on the cake! :o)

...Way to go Mr. Peanut for going and getting it for you too! ;o)

...So glad to hear Darla is doing good. Hopefully you'll find out what is wrong soon and that it is nothing serious.

...Blessings :o)

Everything looks great Peanut and how lucky were you to get that dinning set and what a nice hubby you have.

I can't find anything good on craigslist for my area.

I may just have to purchase one windsor online.

Hugs to Darla.

Big hug and a tummy rub for Darla!! Glad to see she is up and about.... Hope things go well for her.

Your table and chairs are great.... they are perfect for your kitchen. How nice of your hubby to make the trip to CT to pick it up for you. I think mine would find something else he just HAD to do -- like washing his hair or something.... And he's bald.... :)

Everything looks wonderful!
