A long table

Supper outside last night, on our new table from Rustic Productions on Etsy (if you visit the link, ours is a newly-built version of the 'very rustic' sale item table - $350, made from reclaimed oak). It would have had six legs, which didn't look right to me, and Deena and Paul very kindly modified it with a reinforced center section. It shipped in three boxes from Ohio. Amazing Internet.

 We are very happy with it. Having space to spread out is wonderful.

As we ate and it grew dark the possum climbed back over the fence towards us, climbed down, snuck around the side, crossed the garden and went about its business...


  1. Congrats on the the good-size trencehr.
    Also, I have stock envy!

  2. We bought a long table on Craig's List. So fabulous. I love it. So much better than my round can fit a lot of food on it! ;)

  3. Congratulations and well priced at that. 6 legs did seem unnecessary.

  4. I wish I had you skill at tablescaping :-)

    1. Thank you, Kath. Fresh flowers make everything better...

  5. Love the table but what do you plan to do with it in the Winter? I have a deck and the dining table needs to be replaced but I don't have a garage to store it in (and neither do you, I assume). The storage is always a problem with us...what is your solution?

  6. HI,
    Have you tried an oscillating fan to get rid of the mosquitos?
    Mosquitos are lousy fliers and even mild breeze will blow them away.
    All the best.
