What do you think of our latest find?
It's a coffee table!
The base is made from very old runners that once held a log sled. Wide-plank flooring creates the table's top. The wood comes from an old log cabin once located in St. Genevieve, MO. And some of the wood used to create its height comes from a log cabin in Tennessee, built in 1858.
A closer look at the runners.
I love discovering items such as this table above. It's a great addition to The Green Plum's one-of-a-kind inventory. We're currently working on our new Web Site and expect to have it ready for online shopping soon! Hope you'll check us out. It's where old meets new . . . .
On a more personal note, let me convey best wishes for a wonderful and safe holiday weekend. Our country is celebrating its Independence Day. Of course, it's time when family and friends gather -- for All-American fare and fireworks.
My husband and I are hosting a houseful these next few days, and so far it's been great fun! Here below, we're all working -- and laughing -- together to prepare home-made pizzas. (I have a great whole-wheat dough recipe!) One friend tries his hand at spinning the dough while my husband waits patiently outside warming up the pizza stone on the grill . . . .
I will break from all of the fun sometime tomorrow to post the next "Her Personal Space feature series." Please visit us for a very fun look into the private spaces of some of my wonderful blogger friends!
