The table and chairs and hutch have been in my garage since they were moved here. I'm so happy to say that on Thursday evening they got moved into the house.
In retrospect, I felt I should have taken a picture of the table without the tablecloth. But alas, maybe because of age, sometimes my thinker is a little off balance. At any rate, it looks very nice in my dining room.
The hutch was moved from Archbold,Ohio to Woodburn, Indiana without any problem and placed in my garage. My husband was in Haiti, and I wanted to move the hutch just a little bit, and I thought I was being very careful, but in doing that, the lower glass in the door shattered in many pieces. I was just devastated, as it is a curved glass, and I didn't know if it could be replaced. However, I took it to a glass place, and they made a new one and installed it in the door. I very carefully brought it home on Friday.
It was SO much fun putting things on the shelves. The top shelf has some pretty crystal things, as there is a mirror behind it. The next shelf has my stemware. The third shelf has the cake plate I got from mom (I think it was used at their wedding); and the third and bottom shelf have a set of dinnerware that I got from my mother-in-law from my first marriage.
(I tried to get a better picture, but the flash would make a bright spot on it, so this will have to do for now).
I was also excited that I could display my demi-tas cups that I brought from Haiti. Some of these I had and some I just got from Mother's things, as I had given her a set when I came back from my short-term missionary service in Haiti.
Thanks for allowing me to share my joy at having these family keepsakes to enjoy. Come on by and see them anytime!
