Your taste is absolutely perfect. I would kill for that table.

Jill said...

Of course I adore the table. There's a little sewing table that I never bought that I feel was a humongous mistake.

None better; I hope you will be reunited. (The hairy paw feet are actually beyond perfection, aren't they?)
