Welcome Through My Back Door this evening. I hope you will enjoy a cup of DD Hazelnut with me today. Nothing like a good cup of coffee to finish off the evening. You know at this time of the day it is decaf. You can drink as much as you like. I am so glad you dropped in today because things are changing Through My Back Door. Thanks for all the wonderful comments left after my last post about selling because of the yard upkeep. Well God always answers prayers and He has again. As of now I won't be moving for a while. My oldest grandson is not moving out of town after all and will continue to live next door and mow. He does a good job. So that is where we are now. You will hopefully continue coming through this back door.
I have been doing some changing here and there and realized how many tables I have and how different they are. I thought I would share a few with you today.
This is my dining table. You've seen it before. Those of you who have been coming Through My Back Door for a while, know I love southern, epecially Tennessee
furniture. This is a Tn piece.
This little one drawer walnut table is from NC. It has burn marks on the top from a kerosene lamp or a candle.
This table is in my reading nook area and is a good place to sit and have a cup of coffee or work a puzzle.Have no idea where it is from and it is only about 70years old. Not really antique,but it is walnut and fits what I need it to do.
This is a little pine table from Tennessee. I love it because it has really been used. I bought it at a yard sale many years ago for only 75.00.
This is my newest and one of my very favorites. It is cherry and was made for me in 1974 by my little friend, Mr Whitaker, from Cumberland Gap, Tn. He was 85 years old when he made it and he charged me 5.00 because he didn't want it to look inappropriate for him to give it to me. He made me two. My husband and I loved this gentleman and learned so much from him.
This is a little walnut shaker style table I have had for so many years. It too is a favorite.
This is a walnut Tennessee table from Gatlinburg. I bought this two years ago on the worlds longest yard sale. All of the tables I have shown you are pegged and no nails. That is one of the things I look for when buying a table.
Okay, you know this isn't a southern table. You are right, this is my New England one board top, shoe foot table. This is how it looks when I am having company and want the room to look sparse.
This is how it looks otherwise. It is perfect for the small room it is in, and has enough room to hold my computer, printer, external, harddrive,etc.It is one of my three NE pieces. The other two are blanket chests.
This is from the Rocking Horse in Ma. I can't remember the name of the town.
This is the other NE blanket chest.
Don't you agree it is the little things that make a house a home? In this case these tables are functional and decorative. Just what I like.
Thanks for coming and sharing a cup of coffee Through My Back Door today where life is good.
