Break Time

School has been crazy, the weather has been miserable, and the kids, no wait they are ALWAYS wonderful! ;) Let's just say I SERIOUSLY need a break. But that's a good think since we're headed out to a Bed and Breakfast this weekend, thank's to the Craig's list genie. It happened like this...

Hubby bought new furniture for Christmas, a recliner for him and a chaise lounge for me. Unfortunately that means my Italian Antiques have to move to the play room. Hmm, will they last more than a few days there? I'm thinking NO. So I put them on Craig's list. A B&B e-mailed with a trade offer. We bring the furniture to their place in Grafton and we get the Turret Suite. So, I looked up their web site:
Yep, that sounds like a dream come true.

Here are the chairs and couch they traded for:

The pictures don't do them justice. The upholstery is in rag's and the paint is peeling. You can see a bit of stuffing falling through on the right side of this picture. At least these beauties will go to someone who LOVES to refinish furniture.  The new owner's just bought a second B&B to furnish. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!
