    I love your table and your vignettes Becky, for some odd reason I am still not receiving your post updates. I am signing up for email again today to see if it works this time.

    I love your photos and great you are opening a shop, I am planning to also with a friend but NZ is a bit slow to buy on line. We are buying up vintage
    finds and giving them a more modern twist but will be a some time before we have enough stock to open the store.

    I might actually try your wash on my pine table I have just French washed as I like that grey look to the top rather than the yellowy old pine on my table top.
