Humphrey Update

Back in June I shared with everyone my all time best thrifty find.  Mr. Humphrey the Barrister Bookcase.  I purchased him for $40.00 at an auction.

Anyways, here is a picture of Humphrey the day I brought him home....



Since we were in the middle of a move I decided to have Humphrey's little feet repaired and then he was placed on a big ole' moving truck.  No lovin' and decorating was done in Arizona.

Humphrey has adjusted quite well to his new surrondings here in Georgia.

I present to you Mr. Humphrey the Barrister Bookcase doing what a bookcase does best, holding books and worldly treasures....(brace yourselves for he is a thing of beauty)

Hi Ann! Mr. Humphrey is very handsome and what a great deal you got in purchasing him.
I have a very similar Mr. Humphrey too, but she's a girl and lives in my breakfast room and holds my cookbooks.
Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi! It all looks just gorgeous! You definitely have the gift of creating beautiful vignettes! I have a slight bias to this one because I have my own collection of blue and white that I adore! :-)

Mr. Humphrey is lovely. You did a great job.
LOL at your little fur baby and the table. The shih-tzu we had before Skipper would get on the table when we left so I finally gave up and would pull a side chair over for him to get back down.
Happy Blue Monday, Annette

Beautiful!!! And . . . the last pictures are great, too! I just wish I could be there to see it all in person - and help you move furniture around! :o) It all looks great! Maybe someday I'll see it . . . sooner rather than later.
