Yesterdee we were as bizzy as 2 beez.
We moved my huge postal sorter from our current living room,
where it loyally served as a media center + display piece:
Now it’s parked in our Dutch colonial’s dining room,
where it is being pressed into service
as a home office + display piece:
You exchanged the sorter’s original base
with our beloved pine farmhouse table? you ask?
Has the world gone mad?
No — the table works best for my home office hopes + dreams.
See? It provides space for sitting + working.
I may or may not keep that vintage rolling stool there.
But where will you dine? you might be asking now.
We’ll park it on the couch, as always — HA!
But seriously. If we do have guests,
we’ll enjoy our meals on this round table that we already had:
Does it not look like it was made for that window bay?
I think so!
Isn’t it great when a plan comes together?
Let have one more look-see.
Please notice my vintage blue library ladder,
which is very groovy, too:
Its pretty pale blue plays very nicely
with the pale blue of our ceiling, don’tcha think?
Now let’s look just a tad bit beyond —
into our adjoining living room.
There’s our new chair from IKEA:
It’s their gray chenille EKENA chair:
Its combination of traditional + modern style
fits very nicely in our décor.
Plus, that chenille fabric should wear like iron.
Its tweedy gray color not only complements our décor —
it will not show any black pet hair!
We’re placing yet another vintage sorter of mine
on that blank wall behind the chair:
I can’t wait to fill its shelves + cubbies with all my books + ‘stuff’!
Fingers crossed we can move it today!
Stay tuned, of course,
but first, just one more look:
There’s my old easel, displaying my oil painting
of my sister, Kathy, + our late friend, Cindee.
I painted this back in my graduate school era (’78)
at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville.
TY, as always, for viewing!
