SOMEONE got tired of hearing me talk about these guys, so we ran out to see if they were still waiting for me . . . and they were.
they need a little TLC and they're hanging out with some of the old mantle adornments, many of which will likely change. mostly because we (and by we i mean i) are thinking that what was going to act as a formal room might now be our dining room!
we're trying it out.
so far, i'm really liking the idea. it will allow for a much larger table and, therefore, better entertaining. yippee!
