My new old tables

For the last couple of months, Bob has been restoring some old end tables. This set of three small end tables came from his grandmother and are probably close to 100 years old. He stripped them, fixed the wobbles, and this weekend put on the final coats of stain and varnish. They are gorgeous and I look forward to having them back in the house. Thanks Bob.

What I love about this photo are all the lines. You can see the sun reflecting from the open door on these legs, creating shadows and different colors. It might be an interesting painting.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
