It's a Buffet!
Here's a photo of our new buffet, as promised. Dave found it online, where it was touted as having "one lady owner" its entire life thus far. We bought it (very reasonable!) and had it brought over from Belfast, Northern Ireland. It took just a few days at nominal cost.
We put it in the dining room beneath one of my big Gaia prints, and I unpacked a few more boxes to put the black line, red dot china and the Hornsea on top, giving the whole thing a very '60s feel. Kind of "Mad Men." It just needs to be wreathed in cigarette smoke to be completely authentic -- but not in this house!
It's kind of ridiculous that we're buying furniture at the same time that my mom in Florida is trying to dispose of it -- but what can I say? We're here, she's there. Plus, she's not disposing of a '60s buffet.
Yesterday it poured rain almost all day. I couldn't get Olga to go for a walk in the morning -- I dragged her out the door just long enough to take care of business and then she zipped back inside. She hates rain, and I don't blame her. I wonder how the dog-walker manages her on rainy days? That I would love to see.
Anyway, I don't hear raindrops now (it's still dark out as I write this) so maybe we'll get a walk in this morning.
