a few very busy things
The sideboard was inherited from my mom. She had "antiqued" it avocado to match our dining room set in the 70's. It's stripped back down to rosewood now and resting comfortably. The portrait is another gift from Aunt Jackie, it's one of her distant inlaws. We both like it most for the frame. And then I couldn't pass up the giant oxblood velvet, way too busy,display case. A 40 dollar bargain from Green Demolitions, our local thrift. But as less is more, I think I'm done with the gilt.
