Who would have thought a new table would make us all so happy.
It took a little bit of getting used to. Anything new and different in a space takes a bit of adjusting to. Henri and Adelaide immediately wanted to get out their paper and pencils and do some colouring.
When we sat down to a family dinner last night we all loved it. We all raved about how good the new table is - even the children. Spaces and objects that bring family together are so important in a house.
This morning I dropped into the florist and found these interesting branches with little rust coloured buds on them - the perfect colours for the space. The table top is so large compared to our old one that I felt it needed something on it, and something a little more contemporary at that. It will all be good until one of the children snags a branch and my laptop gets drenched....
