If you don't know what that is i'll show you.
Okay let me explain. In my defense I should plead insanity. Insane thanks to my little trip to Atchison Kansas.
So when I went to Mary Carol's home she had this in her foyer. This lovely Butlers Table with an amazing spread. In her books she talks about entertaining and when she does she enjoys greeting her guests at the door with champagne as an elegant surprise.
Our Ethan Allen is closing, unfortunately. ( I know I can't get over it!) Anyway, I have been going a few times a week as my friend KC and the other designers have been clearing items to empty the store. I bought quite a few things fifty percent off. AND then I saw this. (above) This lovely brass Butlers table and immediately I thought of Mary's table below. I'm hoping the table will go down under 150 and I will run across the cornfield, roads and highway to go get it. But right now it's too crazy the amount they want for it. ( I can never hide such a long receipt from my husband)

So you see my dilemma. Here I was confessing my sins to all of you (2 people who read my blog)
about my materialistic need to furnish my home and re-arrange furniture and place various objects in a tiny space to create a "table scape". Hey you never know when a professional photographer might decide to walk in to your home and take random photos for a decor book! It could happen!
To quote my sons "Why you need all this stuff? You're filling the house up ma!
Anyway, I apologize to any Amish friend who might be reading this. (They have access to internet and know my blog) My intentions are still true and my admiration and love for them remain the same.
BUT I NEED THIS BUTLER'S TABLE!
Anyone from Kansas know if there is a Nell Hill's Hotline where there are therapists on hand to help you with addiction problems. Like desperately wanting to copy everything from the store, blog, her home, etc? If so can I have the number.
