Indeed it's not! But, OH how I love it!
Many, many years ago in the early 1970's I was "just looking" in a beautiful furniture store (Ethan Allen) and they had this thick catalog on their counter. Several in fact which cost $10 each. A decor magazine cost that much and more today. After walking around the store..knowing full well I could buy nothing, of course I made sure the sales people knew not to spend any of their time with me, I picked up the catalog and began browsing through it. My face must have shown my longing, because a nice man came up to me and said, "would you like to have one of our catalogs?" I shook my head no, and said I was "just looking" AGAIN!
That sweet man insisted that I take it. No charge, he said. The catalog was a beautiful book at least an inch thick. The furniture was Colonial of course, with woods and finishes so lovely..that in time I wore that book out.
The point is...there was a dining room...a PLAID dining room that was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and from that time on I have dreamed of a red plaid dining room. Now I have it.
End of story.
This picture was take at a different time of day, not so bright. Later a neighbor came to visit and I took another picture..actually the pictures should be reversed.
But right now it's nearly three in the morning so the less said the better. Believe me or not..it's been very difficult at times. I am now as used to it as I will ever be but I used to think about moving. PH is at a loss so we try to ignore it most of the time.
Enlarging this photo might help to see them. Some are on the move and they move FAST! Only black or a white streak can be seen sometimes..but go unnoticed by those that don't know. Long story and 'nuff said.
In some spots the deep red of the paper shows up more. Wish I could have done a better job of photographing. I'm sorry about the lighting..and for so many pictures. I usually don't do that.
If you are still here...thanks so much for dropping in.
