|Grandson #1 on table, 2007|
Back in those days, there were newspapers filled with ads on the weekends. We went to a favorite little store, Weir's, in Highland Park, Texas. And there was the exact bedroom I wanted. Hubby liked it, too. Knowing the Johnson's carried the same brand we returned to that store. Within a week we had the bedroom suite as well as the coffee and end tables to complete our little apartment home. Except we still needed the accessories like lamps, pictures, and the bric-a-brac that most hubbies hate.
The sofa, chairs, many of the original pictures are long since gone. We do continue to use the coffee and end tables purchased 53 years ago. Still have one of the original lamps purchased during the gathering years. The dresser and armoire of the first bedroom suite still hold socks, undies, seasonal wear, and pj's as they have for the past 53 years. Not the same socks, undies, seasonal wear, or pj's but what fits now. And every time I dust and polish the pieces I enjoy them as much as the first time I did.
Wishing you folks a lot of good Saturdays and you live your life!
Peace and Love,
