tbl w chairs
For those who aren't regular readers, my husband is running for public office.  Early voting has begun, and the election is May 20th, so we are in the home stretch.  We're still seldom sitting down to eat, and I can't remember the last time I actually set a table.  So, it was back to the archives for a "breakfast on the farm" table, which I originally posted on May 1, 2013.

I'm loving your archive posts, Laurie. This table is exactly what I'd love to sit down and enjoy in the morning.

As the daughter of 2 career politicians and the cousin of someone who is currently running for City Council (JUST got back from a political fundraiser for her about an hour ago!), I know all about the time investment. I tip my hat to you and to your husband, and I wish him the very best!

Meanwhile, down on the farm....this table for 2 is looking good! The salt & pepper shakers are fun!!!!! I love stuff like that!

Happy Mother's Day, and good luck on the remaining days of campaigning!

Fun Laurie! I love the chalkboard animals! Hope you get to rest after May 20, but that will probably be just the beginning of a new busy life! Hope you get to celebrate Mother's Day!
