Furniture Pics

So okay. These are the two pieces I received last week I promised to share. Bought them one day, had them delivered the next. And you know what? I'm STILL waiting for six chair cushions, six sets of chair legs, and the hardware to complete the chairs and my dining room table. Yes, my shipping company, the abhorrent Transit Systems Inc., has apparently lost my dining room furniture. So if you live in the Northwest and plan on shipping anything, DO NOT use these idiots.

However, Mike's Furniture in Augusta, GA is kickin'. They delivered my stuff the day after, early, and without fuss. I picked up the hidden china cabinet above, and I have no idea how old it is, for a measely $170. It's got a lot of character. The buffet is smooth and crafted with detail that's hard to see from my photo, but it's beautiful.

And so my life has been filled with furniture woes and painting for the last few weeks. Now, however, I'm happy to say I'm writing again. Just finished chapter one of my new futuristic, follow on to Creation's Control with TEB. I'm going to try to finish the book in a month, with the kids home. During the summer. *sigh* Wish me luck.

Thanks so much for the award, Ann Marie! And I agree, the pieces are awesome. Of course, they'd better be since I picked them out. :)
