Thanks for your input girls. Where my niece lives there is some ritzy neighborhoods, we are talking a half million and up houses, and the "in" thing to do is set the furniture you no longer want on the curb for anyone that wants it and it is unbelievable what these people throw out. My great niece has furnished her apartment with great fines. It's great that they recycle. We recycle furniture in our family all the time. If anyone has anything to get rid of you start calling family members to see if anyone needs it and if not usually one of DH's employees does. I have a set of dishes coming from one of my DILs that I have loved every since she got them and she is getting tired of them. I gave a set a dishes to another DIL that I no longer wanted. So Sassy if people do this where you live get up early in the mornings and check the rich neighborhoods. The more wood that is recycled the fewer trees cut down.
Shannon, we went to DIL's parents for middle granddaughter's 13th birthday, on the 13th, yesterday and her dad makes furniture and he has made some beautiful pieces. Things that their family will cherish forever.
Lettuce, I like the tuscan look in my kitchen and dining room wine and grapes. We don't drink but I use wine to decorate with.
Our family room is western to honor my DH's home of Montana. Youngest son told me last night he had gotten some horse shoes for me. We have some beautiful pictures that we have taken over the years up there that I have blown up and framed.
luv and hugs
