Family Life, Photography, the Mr. & Mrs.

Home Sweet Home

We’ve promised pictures, so here they are. We searched around online… extensively… and were discouraged. We visited some furniture shops… and were more discouraged… We dawdled in some antique stores… when all of a sudden we stumbled over a great antique dining set of maple wood (which we absolutely love), complete with extending table, 8 chairs, china cabinet (8 sets of Old England china included), and sideboard. It’s a 1920s set with tons of history, and some unidentified smells and stains that we’re finally starting to scrub out. Yes, it only took us 3 days from finding the set to get it paid for and moved into our future home… and we love it.

The rest of the furniture… is somewhat on loan… and it works for the time being for Brendon “baching it” while we wait for the wedding. This is our wedding-plan command centre for now.

    And I stand corrected… it’s -appropriately- all made from maple wood.

    I AM SO JEALOUS OF THAT DINING SET! It’s ridiculously gorgeous. Holy moly! 1920s… That thing is almost 100 years old! Sigh how lovely vintage pieces are! I wish I owned such a lovely set. Your new home is looking so cozy! You’re making me anxious to tinker with my own house in the fall!
