Time for show and tell ... This is the table and chair set that I got a few weeks back and had posted a picture of. There are actually four chairs but I brought them into the shop before I remember to take a picture. The set is now white and distressed and went home that day with a customer. She was thrilled with it which made me happy.



This past weekend we went camping in a town in CT called Bozrah. I am not a big outdoorsy girl but with a husband and two boys, I have to give in sometimes. We have a little pop-up camper. Usually we camp close to home so I get to take off and sleep in my own bed but not this time. Anyway ...it was a beautiful area I had never been to. Unfortunately, on Sunday it rained most of the day. I did take a few pictures of the beginning of the Fall foliage here (in the rain). The last picture is my 9 year old in the heated pool at the campground. The temp outside was in the high 40's. Yikes!

Beleive it or not, I know where Bozrah is! I used to live 20 minutes north in Sterling. We had a campground on our street too.
It was always a joke at my house that people spent good money to vacation with us!
I was born and raised in CT and next time I visit family you are on my aganda!
Hope to meet you soon!

That looks like a lovely area, but I really don't care for camping. I'm with Francie, camping is no room service!

Hey girlfriend! Love the table and chairs. Oh how I wish I had room for your stuff. I just loooove it!
Great pictures of the fall. NE is so beautiful. Totally froze thinking of your son in the pool at 40 outside. Even if it was heated, I'm still freezing thinking about it!

The leaves are so pretty. Yikes 40 degrees. Your son definitely is brave. The heated pool is ok but getting out of it would be a killer!
