The wire hare and dining table arrive.

Well, Hello. 
Do you like my collection of wildlife that currently resides on the fireplace? I had a random "hare" a couple of weeks ago and bought a giant painting in a big gold frame. A little crazy town? Yep, it has come to live at my house. Currently there is a giant wire rabbit sitting next to it to keep my cat from attacking it. The horse may get to stay. 

In other news, a new piece of furniture has come to live at our house.  When we moved into our home we had enough furniture to cover the guest bedroom and our TV room.  In the past 4.5 years we have collected, discarded, and absorbed a few other pieces. Our dining room table was purchased at Bojo's (may the blessed store rest in peace) with a set of dining chairs.  They were worth the coin, but I knew we wouldn't have them forever.  We got new dining chairs approximately a year after. 

Here is our dining room as of last Saturday morning.  
Our old table, new chairs.

Here is our dining room as of Saturday evening.
Our new table, new chairs. 

What's the difference you ask? 

The old table was 8' long the new table is 10' long.
The new table accommodates 3-4 chairs per side. 
The old table accommodates 2-3 per side. 
The new table is a very, very dark brown. 
The old table was a light wood color (that was about 40 years old). 

This is Rachel Zoe's new dining room. 
What a great room. 
It goes without saying this is an inspiration photo.

What are we going to do with the old table you say? 
It's currently sitting in the middle of the living room...
about 6 inches from the front door. 
My Dad suggested I should start taking depositions.
