A Tabletop of Memories

Many years ago, while shopping at a gift shop, my parents fell in love with a marble-topped table that had a carved, wooden base. When they could find a marked price and asked the shop owner how much it cost, the owner told them that it was his table and it wasn’t for sale – it was simply displaying other items for sale. My parents know it would be a perfect end table for our living room and didn’t want to go home without it, so they made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. That table still sits next to a recliner in their living room.

The table has become a fixture in my childhood memories not so much for the table itself, but more for what was stored on it. My mom always kept two Tiffany desk lamps on the table but the rest of the home accents would be rotated throughout the year. We would have snow globes in the winter, eggs in the spring…you get the picture. Now that I’m living on my own, I’ve purchased a similar table to serve as the focal point in my home.
