A while back, when I wrote about this yellow table and green chairs, Mise commented, "The yellow table looks indomitably cheerful, as though it were waiting expectantly for a group of happy children for sandwiches and jelly." Since then, I've thought of it, in my American way which is not as lyrical as the Irish way, as The Peanut Butter and Jelly table. And this weekend, I looked around at the furniture sitting in the store, and did this:
This table is mahogany, but has drop leaves and is small and rather sleek.
(Inside I wrote, "good for writing novels and cleaning shotguns.")
Not very elegant, but neither am I. And it was fun. So thank you Mise, for the inspiration, and the rest of you for being such good company and inspiring me in your own special way(s).
