Thanks to our hostess, Sheila ... for coming up with this great idea. Make sure you jump over to her site to visit all the party-goers. You can click right through her button on the left of my post.
I decided to show you my little kitchen table ... not for the table but for the shelves above it. Truth is, we eat in the sunroom, in front of the television and on the back deck almost all the time. Empty nesters that we are ... we don't have those rules about "no meals in front of the television" for ourselves! But our kitchen spot is pretty special. The little octogon table (that has 2 leaves to make it 90 inches long) was a game table in our first house, so we've had it 35 years! It has hosted lots of card parties, held every board game that was popular in those 35 years, handled lots of homework ... craft projects ... and cooking projects. It gets used for photo shoots ... we do eat on it sometimes ... and Miss Phoebe loves to open up her giant coloring books on it! It is the one place where we can scribble crayola, spill glue and sprinkle extra glitter! It has handled everything!
