Sitting in my Living Room

I came home with these items yesterday evening.  They were given to me by a dear friend from her father-in-laws estate.  They were ready to be sent off to Goodwill.  I convinced/begged her to let me have them.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with any of it, but I love it all.  My favorite is the table on the left. I will be finding a spot for this one in my home.  The other two tables are a set, one is damaged, but my grandmother used to have one of these in her living room so they are very sentimental for me.  I will post individual pictures for my Week-end Finds post on Monday, but I couldn't help myself and had to give you all a sneak peek.
I hope to be able to make a new life or find a new life for Mr. W's pieces. They were a part of his home for half a century and it means so much to me that my friend allowed me to make something of them.  What do you think?
