Your home should be your castle.....

no matter how small it is. We decided our home needed to support the things we like to do. After all, it's just the 2 of us and if we want it cluttered, then so be it!

The only real furniture we brought with us is my dining room table and small china closet. I don't have a sewing room so where do I work and where can we eat? Today we did some second hand store shopping and found a huge 9 foot table. It needs to be sealed with varnish but other than that, it will be a great place to work when I need the extra space. Of course, we can also remove a few of the extensions when I don't need them. The dining room table is now where we'll eat- with no clutter!

Tonight we sat side by side to eat dinner. I think anyone sitting at the end would have to fight for food! The last time I saw a table this size was in an Amish kitchen in Lancaster, Pa.

Oh my! What a great size table...you could leave all the sewing clutter you might create alone...and still have plenty of room at the other end to eat! I call that perfection!

That table is huge and perfect! What a great workspace. I am trying to catch up on things so I need to go back and read some of your older posts.

I'm so happy to hear you are enjoying your new home. Sounds like you are having fun planting a garden and decorating.
I'm so excited that you'll be coming to the retreat. I can't wait to get to actually meet you in person.
