If anyone would like a white bamboo chandelier like the one pictured above, I am selling one at a garage sale this weekend. Email me for details!

33 yeqrs ago we bought a home built in 1918, and over the years traditinally named rooms got used for other things depending on our lives at the time.

The 'dining room' originally had an inherited dining room table but when the kids came along, it was their play room.
As they got older I raised basejis, and the room became the whelping room. We had added on to the house and knew the room would never be used for 'dining' so a few years ago my husband turned it into the most fabulous sewing room. He added cabinets and counters to the 10' ceiling room and made a beautiful sewing table.
I have a feeling it will remain this way until we die.
