A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.Thomas S Monson

I Need Some Advice
One of our cute neighbors had an estate sale this week. Her husband passed away a couple of years ago and she is selling her big old victorian home and moving to an efficient condo. They were antique dealers for many years and their house was jam packed full of quality British antiques and other pieces. Most of the stuff was waaayyy beyond my budget but I did find this cute little high chair. Do you think it's a reproduction? I know it's not the original paint. Love the enamel tray.
It's painted a limey green and has this bunny painted on the back rest. The color works OK in my house. The bunny has this funny expression on his face. Kind of like the characters in early cartoons.
Should I paint it? Should I live with it for awhile until it needs painting? What do you ladies think?
