New items on Abodewell! and Happy Belated New Year!

Okay, yes, I haven't written in awhile (and for that I apologize), and yes, I haven't posted any items on here for awhile (again, my apologies) and, yes, I haven't really been around.  But if this were school and I had to give you a note, well, it would go something along the lines of the excuse my sister once gave her homeroom teacher in high school for being absent:

                                          Dear Blog Followers:

                                          I'm sorry I was absent but...
                                          I had to go to the beach.

And while, technically (and despite living in L.A.) I'm not a beach person, and while, technically, I didn't really go to the beach, I did need to get some stuff in order and take a much needed break, which, for all intents and purposes, was my "beach".  So, I hope you can excuse this and hopefully I won't have to make it up in summer school.

So now that that ugly but necessary business has been taken care of, onto brighter things.  

Happy (Belated--see above) New Year!  It's a New Year and I have some new stuff (with more to come here and in my Etsy shop)!

First up, this beautiful, all solid wood (maple, no less) butterfly gate leg table.

The top on this has gorgeous tiger striped grain...


And this is like three tables in one.  Both leaves can be folded down (to a size of 22" deep x 40" long x 29.5" high) so this can be used like an occasional table or sofa table, which is great if you don't have a lot of space.  It can also be used with one leaf up, as a desk or small table (size with one leaf open is 39" long x 40" deep x 29.5" high)...

And, of course, fully open (size is 56" long x 40" deep x 29.5" high fully opened) for dinner parties or an extra buffet table that you can tuck away after the party. 

This is available for sale right now on Craigslist (see the ad here) or, contact me directly me through my blog here.  Only $225.  Practically a steal!

Happy Belated New Year!

Update 1/20/11: This item has gone to a good home.  More to come.
