  • Am curious about two things....what manner of small table is that - or, is it one of those "reenactor" type chairs with the back that slides in???? andm secondly...what is the meat with the leg and long tail??? I don't want to say what it looks like to me!
    And, I second my friend Kathy's comments above...I absolutely positively LOVE this blog. Good work!!!! Gorgeous stuff!
