Something New

*Note: Because our new apartment at the castle doesn’t have even one closet for storage we have been investing in furniture like this sideboard for the dining room. This was what Caline and Frère thought of it the evening it was delivered:

The Frenchman’s wife, “So what do you think of it?”

Frère, “It seems to smell ok.”
Caline, “Nothing strange about
the smell.”

Frère, “What’s down here?”
Caline, “What’s down here?”

The Frenchman’s wife, “This is the
inside where the shelfs are!”

Caline, “Oh, I see.”

Next morning when it was all cleaned up and the marble top on…

 The Frenchamn’s wife, “What do you think now?”

Caline, “It looks better with the top on.”

*Note: The sideboard is  from the 1920, the carvings are of grapes, other fruits and sun bursts, it's very beautiful and made of oak.
