A Practically Perfect Fall Day 4 All Today
The morning started with a Finnish Pancake (Thank you Janelle for how you love me so...)
We finally found and purchased a Farm Table which we have been seeking out since moving to Virginia, and it was delivered to our home for free, and it was half the price of many that we had seen or attempted to purchase previously.
We then spent the afternoon enjoying our neighborhood shops, purchased a sleeper sofa ***so we are now ready for visitors! Don't worry we have a memory foam mattress topper so you won't be sleeping on springs :o)
We then stopped for Ice Cream much to Thaddeus' delight!
Johannes testing out the durability of our new table and showing his autumn spirit with his sweater knit by Janelle
Made from barn lumber from early 1900's
Johannes has been giving us lots of indelible smiles as of late
"Brother's don't shake hands, Brother's Hug"
Thaddeus reminds me of cousin Matt in this photo
Our Dining Room
The plan is to have two benches made of the same lumber and stain and then two ladder back arm chairs for the ends.
These two pieces of furniture were completely different looking when we found them in a store. After much sanding, painting, and again sanding them to "shabby chic" they are now in our living room to help give it a beachy feel.
This is the same barn window frame we had in our Michigan home, but now it has been sanded down to be more shabby chic and the photos are from my archives of beach photos comprising trips to Brazil, Pacific City, Florida Keys, San Juan Islands, and Lake Michigan
Thaddeus enjoying his "Uhm keem" as he prefers to pronounce it
Enjoying the final drops of ice cream warmed in the autumn sun
Johannes only gets a rattle this time...
His smiles tell me he is okay with that for now
Fall in Virginia is hard to beat
