What We Keep

Today while I am whooping it up with my 4 sisters and their families, Tina from What We Keep is stepping in to help me out. She's a lovely little Texas belle. I like her a lot! I think you will too.


Salutations!

I found this tiny table at a local architectural salvage place I love.
It sat in the corner of the third floor landing, pitiful and all alone.
Le Grand Hotel No-Tell
for 
Miss Charlotte and all her baby spiders.
After a quick clean up and all that Charlotte business had been taken care of, she got a new home here with Sophie.
A couple of quick coats of Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan and she's feelin' fine now. I used Duck Egg Blue and Old White, then gave it a coat of clear wax. I added the dark wax in for some depth in the carvings. She's pretty now.
  No Charlotte, no spider babies.
Her new job requires that she stand tall and afford a little lift to certain keeps around the house.
She's a plant stand, she's a pedestal, she's a lady.
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, she's a lady.)
Why is that hip shakin' Tom Jones stuck in my head?
I must need food.
I always get disturbing thoughts when I'm hungry.
Charlotte: I'm versatile.
Wilbur: Does that mean full of eggs?
Charlotte: Certainly not. Versatile means I can change with ease from one thing to another.
She will receive her new guests soon.
Maybe a sweet little pig?
Thanks for having me, Karen. It's been a pleasure. Safe travels!

Thanks Tina! It's nice knowing the blog is in good hands while I'm away.

You guys click on over to visit Tina. I think you'll find What We Keep a great place to be.

Make something wonderful today!

What a beautiful table Tina! Now that I'm a furniture painter, I feel qualified to say that!! Seriously, she's a lovely lady!

Tom Jones aside, your table is beyond gorgeous, Tina! Those spiders wouldn't recognize it if they were still around anyway. I love how you played up the pretty details! The details are wonderful. Nice find! And great job making it a treasure.
