Ante and Post .... Post # 1 (and "maters")

After: (You can double click any photo if you'd like to see it better.) You can see my new light table beside the computer and right inside the front door. I hid the underneath with a beautiful green skirt I had bought from Holy Clothing. The skirt was just not right for me. It was way too long, didn't match ANYTHING due to the odd little green/blue color, and caught in my office chair rollers!!! Drat the luck. But it was far too beautiful to do away with, so I re-purposed it on top this old tobacco table. The table was bought by my great great grandmother with money she earned by planting a tobacco patch in her back yard!!! (and might I add, it looks it! haha)... I added this lovely quilted topper bought at Randolph Mercantile, a few jewelry bits, of course a candle, and the message: "Worry ends where faith begins."
The patterned fabric really catches the light... and covers a multitude of wires and computer "guts.
Yuck! BEFORE: All this was important, but actually pretty ugly... Now, how many skirts do I have? haha... Maybe one over my head like a big lampshade? Stay tuned for other before/after corners!
Just had to share also a shot of these red jewels. We have been fortunate to have a farmer's market right near here. The tomatoes are grown by Amish in a greenhouse, but they aren't "hothouse" tomatoes.. No, they are middle of summer, juice runnin' down your chin, grab your salt shaker and head to the picnic table... "maters." Hugs.. Have a great weekend.
