...adding tables to my nest


 These beautiful 
ITALIAN FLORENTINE STACKING TABLES 
aren't mine.







Nor, are these....
This set is just breathtaking to me.

I've been wanting a set of these magnificent, vintage tables
for ever and ever and ever.


 and now I have the most beautiful ones.....EVER


 ...vintage
from the early 70's
and in PRISTINE condition.


 Someone sure took great care of them......


and I aim to do the same ! !
 


You know how when you get something that you've wanted for sooo long...
you can't get anything done for going back in the room and looking at them ?
Well...
I haven't accomplished much of ANYthing today.

  3. Those are so pretty. And they make such sense spacewise. I sure could use those when I host book club or Cork Poppers and have way more people than food-and-drink surfaces!

    I keep meaning to tell you how much I appreciate your Marmelade Gypsy visits. Thanks for keeping on stopping by!

  12. These are gorgeous! I inherited from the previous owner of the Greek house, a set of plain ol' boring stacking tables and I keep thinking I must dig out my paint brush and turn them into something a bit more interesting! You might just have inspired me to do that! hugs, J.

  13. Beautiful set BJ - I have similar except they are well-worn, scuffed and have plenty of patina - I love them and find them so useful.
    Enjoy them - glad things are OK with you my dear.

  14. Beautiful tables! No wonder you want to keep looking at them.
    I often hear the word "vintage," describing one thing or another. Usually with a year attached to it, as you did, such as the '70's or the '60's, whatever. I have to laugh. It seems like "vintage" should refer to something reeeely old, like before I was born or thereabouts. I have kids older than that. I guess that makes them vintage? Yikes! What does that make me? sigh. I guess, at almost 80, that would make me an authentic, genuine antique. Right? Hey, that means I'm "priceless," right? Of course, right. ;-) hee-hee.
    Always good to read your posts!

  17. vintage from the 70s. There was a time when I would have thought that was 1870 ;).
    I'm so happy you found them and that you are doing what you love so much; obtaining, arranging and enjoying.

  32. Love your tables BJ. Dang, those things look good to be so old! LOL! Just teasing BJ. However, I love the vintage and I find it so funny at how so many things from the 70's are coming back and people are loving it! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  36. Hi BJ Your nesting tables look lovely. So glad you found them. I remember we had those in our home in the 60's. My mother bought them new at a place called The Florentine Shop. Classic never go out of style.

  37. I used to see these everywhere. Now they are harder and harder to find. I only have one little table (the middle one) that has lost the rest of its nest.
