I stopped by a local thrift store the other day to search for old cashmere sweaters (for a patchwork blanket), saw this coffee table, (found out later that it is a Japanese Tea table) and fell in love with it. Since I posted on this blog that we were going to move to Maine, a lot of people have been asking me what I have been doing regarding that move, and my answer has been, “I’ve been imagining what it will be like to sit in our new home: fire glowing in the fireplace, writing in my upstairs room with its’ tiny view of the ocean, meeting new friends, finding favorite coffee places, …” All the “action” has been in my mind. When I saw this table, I felt like it was something for our new home, so I bought it.
It is way too big for our current home….that is one of the reasons that I felt I had to buy it. It is for me, an important step in saying to the universe, “I trust that we are going to be moved to a larger home where this will be a perfect fit.”
