Listed on Ebay ~ Furniture treasures...I wish I had a bigger house!!

Last night we listed on ebay some of the furniture we got from the same old home as the clock and scales posted below.
I admit some of the items are right up my line and if I had a bigger home they would not be on offer. The silky oak table with the marble top is so simple and beautiful. I just fell in love as soon as I saw it and the large cedar couch although in only fair condition and in need of some serious love, really caught my heart with its beautiful carvings, chunky legs and elegant stance.
The old lady whose home it came from was a real Katherine Hepburn type. In her early 90's, she remarked to Kristen that she felt she just really wouldn't have the time to restore the couch, but had a look in her eye that made you think she still thought it was perfectly reasonable that she still could. I hope I still have such flair if I ever get to her age.
