HELLO SUSTAINABLE...GOODBYE STAINED OAK

I love a good deal, and recently my friend Janie at Panini Girl let me in on a deal that I couldn't pass up....a beautiful mango wood table for only $75.00...it has a few minor scratches, but other than that it is perfect!......Mind you I had my previous dining room table - a reproduction oak pedestal table - for 22 years, and was more than happy to get rid of it. The economy being what it is today and not having an extra $1,000.00 to buy the table of my dreams, I wrote the check! I was happy to donate my lovingly worn table to the Salvation Army...I call that a win win situation! Thanks again Janie....

Hi Linda Lou,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and my Halloween Party! I am glad you found me. Your blog header is wonderful to look at. And, that new table is fabulous!

Ciao,

Hi Linda Lou....love that new table and I'm really jealous....I happen to have one of those 20 something re-pro oak round tables...when the ceiling fan fell on it the first thing I did was run for the camera for insurance purposes....finally thought I could replace it....took the hit with out even a scratch.....

Wha-wha-what a bargain!!! I love it. And a few minor scratches just adds patina. :-)

Hope you're well...I see you had a date with Martha, too! Very nice. Things are busy 'round my parts but I've decided busy is good. Means I'll still have a paycheck for a while!

OMG. Courtney met Martha. Full circle, huh? Paella looked awesome. I want the recipe. See you next week with Ren for coffee?

The table looks beautiful! I love it. (I cracked up at Sue's quote about the ceiling fan hitting the round oak table...). This "new" table looks very natural in its environment.

It looks wonderful and I'm happy to have played a part! Looking forward to another great meal in this dining room at the new table!
