Wood Warmth

Perhaps it's the time of year that makes me want to be surrounded by comforting furniture, pieces well worn with a story that you can only imagine. Actually, I think the fact that I've been fighting a cold for the last few days accounts more for my desire to envelope myself in easy fitting clothes and lounge upon cozy furniture rather than the time of year. My husband just accused me of wearing one of his shirts. Perfectly slouchy on me, the right combination of cotton and synthetics makes it look as if it's been his favorite for years. But it is actually a recent Loehmann's purchase - in the women's department - for $6.00 (on sale, of course). I loved that it felt as if it had been around for years; had some history, just as reclaimed wood seems to have. Always wanting to build my own furniture from salvaged wood, I'm sure he'd think I stole the pieces from him as well; his fire wood pile. And that time . . . he might be right.

Here are some of my desired old-be-it-new-again pieces that I would love to have right about now. Just add a sheepskin rug and my cocoon is complete.

  1. I just love the furniture in the top photo, and the wood coffee table.

    Would love to build my own house, and make everything for inside of it, too.

    :-)
