I LOVE the table, Jenna. Every room needs a splash of red. What a sweet gesture to "handmedown" such great piece for your new home. Ties to the past....love it, love it.

That's a beautiful table.

(Although, I must admit, when you say it's your *great* grandfather's I can't but think, "Jenna must be so young!")

they just don't make things like that anymore...a lovely family heirloom, in my opinion, functional, great design, sentimental value

Jenna, I am just loving your blog. I come here every day to see what you have been doing at your new home. I would love to see more pictures of the farm. The one of your new dog looking at the chickens with the barn in the background is so pretty. I love old barns and outbuildings. You are doing a great job. So much progress you have made.

I have a red-and-white Hoosier style table as well, except mine has a white top, red trim, and red metal legs. The chairs are the most uncomfortable things, but I can't help but love that table.

Enjoy it!

I love this photo and the story behind how you acquired all these items. The typewriter especially caught my interest. My grandmother had a typewriter just like this. In fact, she used it up until the day she passed away back in 1995. This brings back many happy memories. I would visit her during summer. She'd let me play around with the typewriter and practice my typing skills :) :) She was a great lady :) :)
