This particular little table started off it's life in a Pier One store...somewhere in Iowa, I presume. It got adopted into a home, and was most likely loved by a family for a while, but then ended up in the garage with it's accompanying chairs...(the wicker torn and worn on those...) And then it was put up for adoption through Craig'sList Adoption Services. Another lady came along and took the little table home.
Little Table got a nice new home on a screened porch. All seemed well! Alas...some of the people sitting around this little table kept knocking and jostling it with their long legs, and exclaiming about it!!!!
And then...Little Table, got replaced!!! It was banished to the outdoors on the Patio, and ALSO got a WHITE coating... It didn't seem so bad after all. Warm, flowers, birds singing...Nobody sat and ate around it any more, but coffee mugs got to rest on it when the people came outside.
And THEN....WINTER CAME. Little Table got pushed up under the eaves and the glass top got taken in to be stored on the porch. SNOW came and piled up and froze on the Wicker surface.
One day, when Adopter Mom was inside her burrow, and glanced out at Little Table, sitting there covered with snow, she felt sad. Little Table never got used or noticed much anymore. Having cabin fever herself, and
That big piece of "art??" on that window??
Or maybe you saw it here....
INSPIRATION!! She couldn't believe how perfectly the two went together. And she really had decided she didn't like the "art" blocking part of the view of the Picture Window. Being stuck inside on a wicked chilly day can make the juices start flowing...sometimes.
And so moving pieces around in the room, and exchanging/trading twigs and feathers in the nest all led to Little Table getting a new spot.
Not in a garage. Not on a cold porch...
Not in the frigid snow...But in a warm Living room.
And Little Table felt pretty special, getting more attention and prettied up...
Why, even a little bird named George was allowed out of his cage on the porch and got to come inside and perch on Little Table.
It is a Happy ending for this Winter's Tale of a Little Table...
I think we ALL know the question is...Will Little Table STAY in his new arrangement, or go back out...once Warm Springtime comes??? sigh...
Only TIME will tell.
Another post journalled here in the ongoing blog of this gal....staying inside the Nest until Old Man Winter gets DONE with his fun here in Cedar Rapids.
Whilst looking through some Pic Files to illustrate this little Tale, I came across this pic dated March 4th last year, SNOW OUT THERE!!! and boy did it make my day a little gloomy...well, Buck UP Girl.... Stay Strong...Remain Calm and Carry On....Adapt and Overcome.
This TOO, shall PASS!! It did last year. It will this year.
Thanks to all visitors who dropped by this day. Have a safe and warm and happy Wednesday! God Bless...my bloggy sisters!
