My New Finds~ Show & Tell Tuesday




Show & Tell Tuesday
Saturday I went to a auction on my street. I remember seeing the old man working on his yard all the time. I was amazed how well he kept his home up. Well I found out Saturday that he passed away and his wife is in a home. I wondered where he was. Well I went to the auction and was amazed that I won this beautiful set. It was like they gave it away to me. I thought about how his family used to sit at this beautiful set for the holidays. They must have cherished it, because it was in wonderful shape. I had so much fun decorating the room Sunday and thinking of that sweet ole' man and family. I think this set has touched my heart and I love the story behind it. Enjoy!
