Historic patio furniture???

Regular readers know that I enjoy finding a used piece at a great price, as much to recycle items as to save money. Also, we all realize that late 1800's and early 1900's furniture are not today's trends in stores. Creativity and ingenuity are often required to solve a problem of not being able to find the perfect solution.

When it was time to find patio furniture, I started looking at local classifieds, plus websites for patio furniture stores in the area. While I've seen a regular parade of used  pieces of patio furniture in local classifieds, none or it looked like it would be "at home" in our backyard. We passed up the pieces, continuing our search.

"At home" is the key we used when searching for every element of our historic-like home. "Would this style have 'fit' into a late 1700 or 1800's home?"

What is that smell?

I must laugh at this one. It only took one year to figure out an answer to a "problem."

We have floored in attic storage and are in that space regularly. Periodically we would notice an odor that we couldn't find. It would come and go.



But we could find NOTHING!
