Raising the Bar


                                 Shhhhhhh....This is a surprise post for my St. Louis kids.


Their Anniversary is coming up later this Spring
and I love to surprise them with something vintage.



They are big fans of the local breweries of St. Louis.
If you've never been, then it's the home of Anheuser Busch
Schlafly, and tons of other smaller companies,
with lot's of great little urban pubs.



So when we found this Farberware Bar Set I knew they'd love it.


I've checked the Internet and can't find any information
so I'm not sure how old it is, but the wicker covers just knocked me out!



On second thought, they may need to arm wrestle me for that  thermos.








Here's a photo from our trip last fall.

Incredible house...


Their "Restoration Hardware-ish" Dining Room








Happy Early Anniversary, kiddos!



see you two at Easter!
(xoxoxox, mom)

Aren't they cute?
I don't look old enough to have them as kids.
yeah, right...

oh I can just see a picnic in Forest Park with those

The kids have an amazing home. At that age I would would never have dreamed to have a home like this.

Hi Debra, If they don't absolutely love the bar set you can send it my way. What a unique and wonderful set! Their home is beautiful and I love the sideboard. Thanks for sharing this at my Open House party. Take care.

looks like a Clayton or U City house! The set is great and will look wonderful in their dining room

Faded Charm said...

These are so cool and I've never seen them with wicker before:) What a nice gift and NO you don't look old enough.

I'm not sure about the basket I have sitting underneath the chalkboard. I bought it at a Flea Market, but she didn't know the age. I don't really think it's old, but I like it because it's different.

I had quite a few comments on the stencil and I will give the link in my next post....can't remember the name right now.

Take care,

Kathleen
