Be careful what you ask for
As for progress on my own house this week, nothing photogenic to show off. Some design sketches that may amount to something, a little primer, a little varnish...oh, and a great table I found on craigslist.org, which I have been searching for at an affordable price, since choosing to buy this house. Seriously, I had a picture of the table (Jacobean Revival, popular from the turn of the century through the thirties in this part of the country), and was looking for the kind of house it would go in. Found the house five years ago, found the table (for a song!) five days ago...I'll show it on here one of these weeks. An extra special thank you to Cathy Isles for her patronage, her joyful encouragement of big dreams, and the tip that paid for the table!
